I had the pleasure of experiencing an evening in Serafinos restaurant and found the food amazing and the service cannot be faulted. Definitely recommend the "Deconstructed Mango Cheesecake", so yummy.

Company Christmas lunch with a difference. Nice venue, great outlook across the "lake", friendly staff, good service and nice food. A short thirty five minute drive from Adelaide is worth the trip. Will be returning soon.
