I've been there once, the food was average and the service crap. :)

if you can cope with vegetarian/sea food then the good old dux de lux is worth a go - foods always good and they have ginger tom on tap :thumbsup:

hope you've got a bike down here with you (or have nicked a demo bike) - it is of course REQUIRED that you go do some laps of flying nun so you can evaluate the local terrain's demands on wideopen components? ;)

Thats what lights are for :)

How about laps of flying nun followed by Vic Park, then dinner at Brickworks or Elevate - both of which are within 500m of bottom of Bowenvale and are used to smelly bikers.

Sorted :thumbsup:

I went there once the food was great, the service was just fine and the meal was free.
Thanks to Timmah's expense account. :sly: :)

Favoured by expats who left for their OE circa 1985, then come back to visit briefly. You mean, there are other al fresco dining options now? I don't believe you!
