Always enjoy the food here...whilst our servers were very friendly, they were quite busy or I think that's the reason they took so long to serve us. Will dine again.

So me and my 2 sons dined here on the 10th June. Had to wait about 15 minutes for a our dinner was served, being the only people dinning. Tryed something different on the menu instead of ordering the same thing and to my liking I enjoy my plate was delicious. Boys demolished there plates as well

Loved the friendly and helpful service of Philip. He went over and above normal service. Main was beautiful and generous in size. Desserts were nice and very generous in size. Great experience.

Really yummy meal that was a very decent size. Once seated the service was friendly and prompt despite the box office being very busy at the time we arrive and the staff were obviously stretched. My only criticisms would be that it took some time to check in and find someone to seat us when we arrived (due to staff being tied up a the box office), I was a bit worried we would go over the first table check in cut off and miss out. Also we weren't offered the opportunity to look at the dessert menu. Overall a very enjoyable experience and we got to our 8.30pm movie on time.

Arrived just as a huge event with heaps of students were just leaving. The place was quite chaotic and we were concerned as a table wasn't ready and we wanted to eat before our film started. We needn't have worried. The bar staff was very attentive making sure we received a clean table, lit candle and took our order quickly. The food was superb, couldn't fault it. Very satisfied with the experience

A great place to come for a well priced meal. The lamb salad and pan fried salmon were both delicious. It's surprising this place isn't better patronised as its a favourite of ours, being tied to the cinema. Even the cabinet food looks incredible.

The young man that served us from the beginning was amazing very helpful. Was happy with the experience until his manager started to appear that counter she was rude and to her staff and also us. For this reason I wouldn't return as I would rather go somewhere that the staff actually wanna be there.

Great service, lovely staff. The food tasted amazing!! I ordered the Angus beef burger, it was Fantastic. My only concern was the m&m cheesecake the appearance didn’t look nice as the m&m’s had sunk into the cake and the colour had started to come off the m&ms while being stored in a fridge. Just an idea - put the m&m’s on before you bring out the cheesecake
