Amazing Food, Amazing Service

Me and my fiancé went there for dinner on Saturday Night, the food was absolutely amazing and the service was impeccable. Well worth making the trip from Brisbane. The steak was melt in the mouth and the lamb brains where some of the best I have ever tasted. 10/10 on both food and service.

A lovely waitress placed us and took our orders. For a while we were the only customers there. My partner's risotto was tasty but my well cooked Lamb had a too strongly flavored red-wine juis.

I booked this due to good reviews on trip advisor. The food wasn't bad, although some unusual and a little old fashioned dishes/combinations. I had a Mosin bay bug risotto which was very nice, my partner had a veal dish which was just ok. Salads were lovely. Good service and food served quickly. Unusual setup in the restaurant, something felt... More

I would say that I was pretty surprised with the quality of food served at this place. How do I gauge it? By how my young ones finish up every single thing on the plates! Food is great, service is impeccable too. Definitely a MUST go if you're in the area but do book especially for Fridays or weekends because... More

This was such a charming restaurant, with a lovely little garden surrounding it. From looking at previous TripAdvisor reviews I was a bit put off by the way the person who responds to reviews told off anyone giving three stars or less (but not bothering to thank the people giving good reviews). Had I been visiting Mt. Tamborine later in... More

We had dinner here for our 10th wedding anniversary, and it was just brilliant. It was mid week, so numbers were down, but the enthusiasm of the staff was still 100%. The food was outstanding, with the Duck being the star of the evening. Good food. Good atmosphere. Good staff. Great evening.

We spent a lovely evening here. Excellent food, ambiance and service. The food was sophisticated and well balanced. Much more than ordinary Australian fair. A must go if you are in Tamborine

Had 3 entrees instead of the usual entree/main style. The crumbed brains were the standout and would thoroughly recommend them, yum! I appreciated them allowing us to bring our own wine as we were celebrating my wife's birthday and wanted something special. Staff are friendly and helpful and even met the chef as we were last to leave, he was... More
