Booked a table very last minute for my birthday for 26 people. Had no issues what so ever and even though people turned up a little late the staff were very accomodating, patient and just really lovely! The lady, didn’t catch her name sorry, who seated us down and took our orders was fantastic! Great positive attitude and very tentative. The precinct should feel lucky to have her as part of their team. Please let her know we said thank you. Food was quick and beautiful too! Thanks to the chefs in the kitchen. All up I had a great birthday Sat , thanks so much!
We reserved a table for lunch before going to the’G’ Geelong/Hawthorn game Easter Monday 17th April 17. The whole experience was excellent…the staff, the food,the ambience. Would definitely recommend this place. Well done everyone!!
