We dined here with customers. Great experience. Fusion menu and awesome beer list. And the cocktails were great. Worth a visit.

Great drinks from the bar, huge cocktail selection. The food is a nice cross section, my favourite is the sautéed beef :) I always enjoy bringing friends here, keep coming back again and again

I took my husband there for his birthday last weekend. We requested and ate at a table in the front of the house so we could hear the live music. the ambience and atmosphere is really cool out there. The place got busy quickly - by 7:30 most tables were gone. They have a large cocktail menu - the drinks... More

We went to Nirvana on a night when it was pouring rain so the cozy and intimate surrounds really suited a night that we didn't want to spend on a decking overlooking the sea. The immediate feel of the place was relaxed and welcoming. We were seated at a booth at the back, and that was really private and a... More

Came here for myself and my mothers birthday dinner. Have been many times, very consistent. Food is always amazing, never had a problem. Service on the other hand very bland, unhappy looking staff who look like they hate their job. Will definitely keep returning for the food though!

On the recommendation of a colleague our group decided to head here for dinner. After walking inside I was concerned that we had made a mistake. We were seated quickly and selected one of the buffet options. They were more that happy to accommodate changes to the buffet line up to suit our tastes. The food was very good and... More
