Pork Belly and Soft Egg Pizzas – caramelized onions, smoked mozzarella,

  • 8/10
  • The bottom of the pizza got soggy very quickly
  • The toppings were quite interesting – pairing of caramelized onions, cheese and egg
  • I would have preferred more pork belly because there wasn’t much – it seemed more like shredded pork

Steak and frites – NY Steak, garlic herb butter, sea salt fries

  • 8/10
  • Steak was cooked nicely
  • The garlic herb butter went nicely with the steak
  • The fries were nicely seasoned

Dead Frog Beer

  • 8/10
  • My favourite beer out of the 3– yeast flavour wasn’t that strong

33 Acres Beer – Hybrids (Life 4.8%)

  • 7.5/10
  • Very light beer, good for people who like light beers

Hoyne Beer – Lagers (Off the Grid Red Lager 5.3%)

  • 7.5/10

Summary: Service was good, food was standard, view was nice but what’s most important was the company was good.
