The steak spud was very delicious. We got it without black olives. Two of us spit it but I definitely could have eaten a whole one by myself.

Great place to eat, particularly if in a group. Vegetarians and meat lovers are catered for. You can buy one of their specialities or create your own.

Massive potatoes, really nicely cooked with generous toppings. Staff were very friendly. I had the veggie potato and it was the perfect meal after a few 'heavy' meals when eating out on holiday.

Loved this place and visited twice for lunch. Food kept us full for busy sightseeing days. Excellent location near Fisherman's Wharf hotels and attractions. Just away from main road so a little quieter than some places. Friendly service and excellent choice. Superb for vegetarian food....More
