The best food in Elviria. The scallops and the rack of lamb are amazing. The Saturday night live music is great.

We went there last week. Excellent food and service. Had the selection of fresh fruits for dessert - 13 different fruits with some mango sorbet - wow !! We booked a table for 8pm - good decision as the restaurant got busier as the evening progressed. Definately be going there again !
