Went for New Year's Eve. Service was terrible we had a party of 4 and we all took turns calling over the waiters. Waited ages for our order to be taken, our drinks took ages to come and you had to pour your own wine. Food was average

We went here for a low key family celebration. Service was prompt and friendly. I had requested a window table but for a group of five it seems this was not possible. The weather was too hot at that stage to sit outside which would have been a delightful option in better conditions. We all had pasta which was pleasant... More

Food and service was outstanding. We'll definitely be back. I can recommended the Smoked Salmon and Blue swimmer Crab pasta and my wife loved the oven baked Barra. Wine matching suggestion was spot on. Beautiful, friendly staff.

I booked ahead (if you don't you may be disappointed as it is a very popular restaurant) and requested a window seat which was accommodated. Only disappointment was that the bread was served about 30 seconds before the meal. Will definitely go again as there are a few more items on the menu that I can't wait to try.

This establishment is amazing. It ticks all the boxes. My wife and I ate here on Friday night. I booked ahead and it was just as well. We could see no empty tables. We were seated at a window with a "beautiful view" across the lake and if this was not enough, there is a stylised mural of Florence adorning... More

Nice spot down by the lake at Emu Bank, plenty of parking available. We'd made a reservation, suggest you do as it was busy. Initial greeting was friendly and we were promptly shown to our table and offered drinks straight away. The menu has a good range, including vegetarian and gluten free options, to choose from. Our bruschetta was very... More

Enjoyed a very good meal with friends here the other night. The service was little hit & miss but the food was very, very good. I thought it offered a quite a variety of menu options at reasonable prices. Whether it was seafood, steak or pasta that was chosen, everyone at the table really enjoyed their meals. I can see...
