    Yes it's overpriced and a tourist trap, but it can be very nice sitting outside overlooking the steps of Fed Square, esp with the $12 Cocktail Happy Hour (get the mojito)

    The waitress will correctly repeat back to you everything that you ordered, then half of you won't get your drinks. And when you ask she acts like you never ordered them, then brings the wrong drink.

    Funny I never have a problem w/ service here. Adore the ginger limeade!

    It's a bit touristy but the food is decent & there's plenty of people watching. Never had a problem with the service. Free wifi is handy.

    Maybe they've changed things, or maybe all the people complaining about the service just radiate unpleasantness - staff were friendly and attentive towards us today. Food was excellent also.

    Food is great, friendly and fast service, definitely a must visit kind of place! Try the veggie spring rolls, they were to die for with the Chinese mustard!

    Service is horrible!!! Breakfast was good though

    I reckon the Atlantic Eggs dish allows you to consume all 5 food groups in one sitting ... a yummo selection for Brunch and really filling.

    saturday night. the rice is off, quesadeas are microwaved, pizza is soggy, and no coopers red.

    Steak came out burnt. Patty for the beef burger was also burnt and the burger was cold. However the burger did taste pretty good and the chips were very crispy and tasty

    Asked to sit in a booth when one was free (politely). The response: "I'd rather you didn't, there's 3 of you and that's a big booth" then he walked off.

    No good food, so so service.

    Get the ginger limeade not too much ice. Reminds me of being in Bali. Never had a problem with waiting.

    Uncertain when the waitress didn't know what a piccolo latte was, but it came out ok, bruschetta was average at best.

    Found hair in my steak and they only offered to take my glass of wine off the bill when I told them I couldn't wait for another steak to be done. Bleh...

    Great place to sit and have a drink with friends. Food a bit pricey but it's worth it considering the awesome location!

    Benjamin Hansen · February 16, 2012
  • Danella G.

    Really bad service. It doesn't take much to smile or say 'hello, can I start you off with any drinks?'

    Danella Glass · February 5, 2012
  • Matt M.

    Bit of a wait to sit and a bit more to order, menu is inflexible and a touch on the expensive side but not as high as some neighbouring establishments, then again it is right in fed square....

    Try the pitches of sangria! Read more

    The lemon tart is tasty, but the berry bliss needs flavour. Not as bad as people say it is.

    Mich · June 4, 2011
  • Kelvin I.

    Expensive & average. Nice spot for people watching tho...

    Kelvin Ip · April 23, 2011

    Don't order the chai latte- tastes weird- or the quissadellas- it's like eating cheese on thin dry bread.

    Nagham · November 23, 2010
  • Jorge L.

    Shocking service.

    Jorge López Canales · November 12, 2010
