If you want poor service and food poisoning then this is The place to go. You'll be seated and served by grumpy bitches. They'll rudely take your order when they're ready. You'll get a huge amount of food for a good price but the worst price comes after you've eaten. You'll need a bucket whilst sitting on the toilet because you'll have both ends spewing out toxic gunk. You'll need a cold cloth for your head and a blanket around your shoulders due to hot and cold sweats. After sending left over food to a council appointed place for examination, our report came back saying the food contained traces of feces, urine and semen. Also contained traces of selmonella etc. So if you want to experience all that food poison has to offer them eat here. Just make sure , if employed that you go on a Friday because you'll need a few days to recover.
place is a sham. They have no competition and we can only assume that is why the manager could literally not care less. Long story short, one out of 6 meals didn't arrive, everyone had finished and we still didn't get it. When we did get it the manager came over and nonchalantly shrugged and said 'he didn't know why we didn't receive our food' he didn't apologise and couldn't have made it clearer he didn't care less. When we then got upset about it, he caused such a row that our 6 and 9 year old children started crying because he threatened to take the food away. Can you believe it??!! DON' T GO THERE. I've never experienced anyone like him. I couldn't believe he was the owner. How can you run a business like that???
Great meal when you are down by the beach with a rumbly tummy
Stopped in for lunch today, Friday. 3 x mains, 2 x entree serves, 2 x kids meals, drinks and coffee, all for udner $130. No issues, all pasta's were well-cooked and tasty. The calzone was probably not a great example, a little dry perhaps.
Other than that, for a nice lunch out, in a marvellous little area (Frankston), it is well worth the visit.
Ps, the staff were great, I did wonder if more were rostered than were needed, but happy to have them all at the time. All very pleasant and knowledgeable.
Open seven days a week until late including public holidays.
