fab place

This small restaurant has it all. Wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food is delicious. The double smoked bacon in their salads is to die for. their seafood is fresh and expertly prepared, ribs and steaks wonderful. A must eat

Had the soup and grilled chicken panini. The chowder was full of seafood, so creamy and so delicious. The panini was tasty too, had cheese, spinach, chicken, and roasted veggies, all done to perfection.

The outside of the restaurant and the area it is in is not too great but... More

We would not have guessed that we would find a restaurant of this quality in the small centre of North Sydney. The food was fresh, carefully cooked and presented and the staff were friendly and interested in us.
