For a Saturday, the restaurant was pretty quiet when I got there. However, it eventually filled up, and our sunny and bright spot by the window was quite nice. The music was way too loud at first although eventually they turned it down.
Although the restaurant looks quite neat and tidy, I did notice a few bugs around the place, and at one point a bird flew into the restaurant.
Service wasn’t that great. My friend made a reservation and thought the staff member who made the booking was a little pushy.
The waiter who served us did a good job of checking whether we wanted drinks or entrees, and bringing out our food. However, I was a little annoyed when he said we couldn’t sit outside because they only open that area for groups of 7 or more (we were 5), and later let a couple of other guests sit in the outside area.
I ordered the 350gram Rib-Eye steak which came with a side of fries. I also ordered some spicy sauce to go with it (the mayo on the plate was part of my friend’s meal and was accidentally served with mine)!
I ordered the steak medium-well and it came out perfectly cooked. The chips were absolutely delicious, crunchy and so golden. The sauce was also quite nice.
Overall I really enjoyed this, and would like to try out the ribs next time.
350 gram rib-eye steak, $35.95
My friends all enjoyed their meals as well, with most ordering steaks, and one ordering calamari.
Overall I would rate my dining experience (out of 10):
- Service- 5.5
- Food- 8
- Ambience- 6
- Value – 7
