Lovely place to dine. Food was absolutely delicious. Service was amazing. We were well looked after. Wait time was minimal which was even better. Will totally be back. Was a lovely dinner to end my busy day. Even better that it was my birthday

Waitress’s were lovely and welcoming. One of our mains were missed which was fine, we would have appreciated communication from your staff by letting us know what was happening so that a member of our family didn’t have to sit awkward without knowing if it was on its way or not. I decided to go and find out myself and asked the waiter if her food was still coming, he walked past me and said “yeah it’s being plated up”‘ then carried on walking. Secondly, when the main was put on our table the plate was rushed, the meat was in pieces, presentation was 2/10 and looked completely exhausted from the exact same meal another one of my family members had ordered we obviously sent it back. I understand it’s a 50% deal but that does not mean standards in service and the quality of food drop. So in my experience if you would like your food missed and a sassy waiter this the spot

Very friendly staff, service was a little low. River view is peaceful. When leaving we found the alleyway back to Alma st needed more lighting

From the moment we walked into the ibis we were greeted more than once the staff were engaged and made you feel welcomed. We were given the choice to choose where we wanted to be seated which was nice. The premises is modern and clean. Reece was our waiter he was friendly and down to earth and he was very professional, and we enjoyed how prompt the service was. We would definitely recommend and return next time we would book the hotel and make a weekend of it.

Drinks were perfect, service was tentative and amazing. Food was a slight letdown from the amount of fat and gristle on the lamb, burger bun was crumbly and fell apart while eating it and could have done with seasoning the beef more. Overall decent experience!

Dined out with my partner and eldest son...We sat outside on the balcony overlooking the river, warmed by the overhead heater. It was really lovely and nice to eat outside in a winter's evening. Food was awesome, everything was delicious! Chicken salad for starters and salmon dish, 2x lamb rump and 1 beef burger for mains, and apple fritters with burnt caramel sauce, tonka bean creme brulee and chocolate delice for desserts. My son couldn't finish the chocolate delice as it was far too rich, but other than that it was a very pleasurable night out. Bronwyn was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We will be back!

Took 50 minutes to receive our order and when arrived was mostly cold and over cooked. Service was pathetic and somewhat surly. A very disappointing dining experience.
