Neat atmosphere, however I ordered my steak medium and it wasn't even medium rare. A fellow guest at the Hilton Hotel, told me he had a good experience and that I missed out on one of the fun features, which is picking out your own steak. As with most restaurants in the area, the service was very pleasant.

Have eaten here with friends twice in the last 3 days. Great steak and kingclip. Wine is reasonably priced. Much to recommend. One slight minus is the construction work ongoing next door which means that dining outside on the terrace is not as peaceful as in times past
