Having received an advertising handout the night before, my wife and I decided to try this restaurant. It was near to the Hotel, and would make a change from Hotel food.
After a 45 minute wait, and following a reminder that we had waited rather a long time, my wife's food arrived. It was a rice and prawn dish. Four prawns on the plate, all with heads on. Two, heads only. It would have been a sad starter, we had ordered it as a main meal. My wife complained, the first time ever! We received considerable verbal abuse, and walked out.
I offered to pay for my meal, it was acceptable, and our drinks. when the over cheesey owner/manager and his staff apologised.
no such apology was given.
Do not use this establishment.

We went here recently as it was the closest restaurant to my friends motel. We ordered battered scallops for starters, all 4 of them came out rolling around a plate with a bit of old salad.
For mains we ordered sirloin steak but were up sold to scotch fillet by the friendly if slightly over cheesy waiter. The photo in the menu looked great of this meal but I since realised these photos are likely off the Internet as one had a meal they do not sell and their logo was photo-shopped in. Our meal arrived and no scotch fillet to be seen! The steak looked more like brazing steak, it was very thin, far too thin to be medium rare as requested. The salad was old and probably from a packet, the slice of carrot on top was pale, scaly, and rubbery I was able to bend it but not snap it.
We did not complain (I will be calling them later as I feel it is not fair to write a bad review without the owners being aware there is a problem) but from other reviews I have read this would likely have only led to verbal abuse by staff.
Our mains were $22-23.
Would highly recommend not going here!
