Overall staff were friendly and atmosphere good. I wasn’t so fussed on the desserts personally (paying $10 for something pretty average when the restaurants along the street do something much more memorable for $12) but the kids I was with absolutely loved it and raved about it for weeks afterwards.
So in short: great place for kids: will go again with kids but will go elsewhere for my own dessert!
First time – I went there the older serving person (assuming the owner or manager), stopped to pick up ice cream dropped on the floor; scooped it up with her hands off the floor, flicked it in the bin – then carried on making ice cream for others without washing her hands – eww yucky!!!
After a lovely main at another Howick restaurant decided to try again – what a mistake.
Admittedly a busy Friday night but… there was an empty table with plates, ice-cream bowls, etc. still there, I told my daughter to sit in the booth, but was told by the young server to wait and they would clear the table for us. While we stood there ordering – people came in and sat at the table – the young server looked at us and said “I’ll go and get someone to sort it out”. My partner then suggested we could sit at another table that had the reserve sign, just for a few minutes – that was a “no, they might be coming along any minute”. Out came the person who was “sorting it out”, who looked at us and said we could have a take away. Still didn’t seem to bother them when we said we wouldn’t bother ordering if we couldn’t eat in. Wandered past 10 minutes later and still no one sitting in the reserved seat.
Winters coming – with completely mediocre overpriced product, no service and a slightly grubby looking presentation on all surfaces (already), doubt they will make their second summer!
Won’t be back again.
ps Having to give at least one star to post – would give less if I could!
The vision Quirk has is just amazing, it really is and so relaxed, and when I take my little girl her eyes light up when she sees her treat , and when she gets to pick some lollies she sees herself in a fairy tale
It is an amazing and funky set up I definitely recommend it
