We had heard great things about this veg restaurant and were keen to try it. Were told booking is essential. We arrived on time and were shown in to a lounge room as our table was not ready. They brought us the menu there, which we found rather odd. We ended up waiting for 30 mins there before my husband... More

I was taken to this restaurant when visiting a friend that lives in the area as I'm a veggie and she had heard good things, and rightly so! I must admit when we first walked in I was sceptical as there's not a lot of tables and I was worried about the atmosphere being a bit dull. We were seated... More

This little restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere, with its comfortable sitting room where orders are taken and appetisers served, and upper and lower eating areas. Service is calm and unhurried, making for a relaxing evening. The menu has a wide range of dishes which all sounded so good that choosing was difficult. Food is clearly cooked with a great deal...

My wife and I celebrated a friend's birthday last night at this restaurant. We've all been here several times and each time it feels like a new experience. On each occasion we were welcomed like old friends. Food is excellent and well presented. If restaurant isn't fully booked you can walk in frpm the street. Give this restaurant a try... More

As a true meat eater, this was not on my list of eateries I wished to visit. When a friend booked it as a surprise, I was a little disappointed. However, after that one visit, I am a convert. The food is simply delicious and the service is superb. I have returned several times and now look forward to my... More

Absolutely stunning food once again. Have visited 3 times and never been disappointed. Lovely service family owned restaurant. Fantastic food can't help but eat 3 courses and some of the best after dinner coffee to round it all off. Could not recommend this place more... I'm not even vegetarian!
