Whenever I'm wanting ribs I usually think of Hurricane's. If you're hungry but can't really finish a full rack then it's better value to share a full rack with someone else — much cheaper than ordering just a half rack for yourself. I tend to prefer the Pork Ribs over the smaller and meatier tasting Lamb Ribs. I wish I could cook ribs at home that has meat so tender and falls off the bone. I also tried the rather expensive Prawns Villa Moura although it has four enormous Clarence River King Prawns — I don't think they can get much bigger than these babies. Comes with salad dressing and three sauces of which I prefer the peri-peri sauce. Salads are huge at Hurricane's and the Octopus Salad is no exception.
For dessert I had to try the Mars Bar Cheesecake just for the name. Seemed to have real slices of Mars Bar on top although I found the cheesecake a bit dense. I preferred the more classic Warm Sticky Date Pudding. In terms of drinks I noticed wines by the glass are pretty expensive, averaging between $11–$13 while beers are a bit more reasonable at about $7–8. Note there's a 10% surcharge on Sundays so visit on other days if your wanting to save a bit on your final bill. And don't forget you get complimentary brown bread and butter in case your thinking of ordering garlic or herb bread.
