My wife and I lunched on a Sunday . While rest of Devonport was very busy , this restaurant was quiet - just unfortunate it is off the main street . But patrons are missing out on a great location ( indoor / outdoor seating ) and while menu for brunch/lunch is limited the offerings are generous and... read more

We are staying in the area and the guest house owner told us to give this place a try for our evening meal.well I'm glad we did as my husband said it was one of the best steaks he had ever had and we will be returning.

We went there on Wednesday night. Worrying sign when there was no other customer while the other restaurants in the area ar packed. We had a Grabone voucher (3-course meal) that was only valid for 1 month, was able to redeem the voucher at face value but could hardly order anything with $75. We had steak and lamb, for the...

My husband, son and I dined here for the first time on Saturday night. There was only one other couple in the restaurant, which struck me as unusual for a Saturday night in Devonport. The food was fine, but nothing outstanding and the two staff serving were very attentive but it just lacked atmosphere. I couldn't help but feel it... More

We booked for dinner for 4 using a Grabone voucher for a Sunday evening. Parking was relatively easy on the same street. The restaurant has both outdoor and indoor dining with a very pleasant relaxed atmosphere. Service was friendly, prompt and attentive during the course of the evening. The voucher entitled each of us to a three course meal with... More

By the end we felt full but not stupidly so. Saw a few people come to eat but leave when they heard it was tasting menu......their loss!!! Thoroughly... More

This is definitely a 'must stop at' Bar & Restaurant in Devonport. Lovely, inviting outdoor area that is to die for on a summers day, as well as Superb degustation menu served by experienced wait staff, who surely know their stuff!! Top service & yummy food, whether for an afternoon drink in the sunshine, or for the tasty dinner menu-(especially... More

We were at the restaurant last night a group of 9 from 630 pm, it was my first time there but my friend who had booked us had been there before. Let me start with the atmosphere, well appointed, seems to have had a recent make over - very tasteful. The food was very good, I was not expecting the... More
