Beautiful food

A lovely place with exceptional service. The food is a little on the expensive side but when you see the work that has gone into every dish and the quality of the ingredients you can understand why. This is fine dining and the price is fair for the experience. We had the scallops and the prawns for... read more

Absolutely delicious! From the scallop and shredded pork belly entree followed by a main course of duck and smoked eggplant and finishing with cherry, almond & chocolate for dessert each course wasl perfectly balanced. The portions were more than adequate. The ambience of the old church was lovely. We enjoyed relaxing in the big comfy lounge chairs in front of... More

I stated in my last review that we would dine here again sooner rather than later and we did ( I am a little late in getting around to writing this ). Again every mouthful of this food was absolutely sensational and possibly couldn't say which of the four courses we had was our favourite. The duck was absolutely outstanding... More

Excellent chef. Nicest restaurant listed here on Trip Advisor. Pricy but worth it. Just a few of this quality on Mt. Tamborine.

We had great service from both the host and our waiter who were very helpful explaining their specials and other menus items. I had the venison as a main and it was one of the best meals I have ever had! Great service, delicious food and beautiful ambiance, have and will continue to recommend to friends and family.

The restaurant has transformed an old church into a stylish restaurant and delightful function centre that serves for weddings and group celebrations. The menu focuses on classic pork, beef, fish and veal dishes as well as pasta and vegetarian options with a French/Italian influence. The slow cooked pork belly was melt in the mouth texture with superb accompaniments of white... More

Every mouthful was delightful, a taste sensation. We chose the 4 courses with wine and were very happy. Lovely service. The fire was cosy. Fine dining but not snooty. Would definitely go again. Also liked the easy online booking.

We came back for our third time to this wonderful cosy restaurant where Chef Andrew never fails to cook up the finest food in Mount Tamborine. This a family run business with Frank ensuring the guests are kept warm stoking up the most incredible fireplace. The Five Spice Duck and home made Potato Gnocchi are must have dishes when visiting... More

This restaurant is lovely....I went with my partner and we both found it romantic and relaxing. The fire was so warm and inviting and the service, all night, was so efficient. The food was really impressive....I would go as far as saying that it was the best meal out we have had in a long time. Beautifully cooked meats with... More
