Tasty, pleasant atmosphere with a hint of Europe

I've eaten here twice and on both occasions really enjoyed the food. The menu is modern and will suit those with a pallet for well prepared food with a European atmosphere. The service is a little inconsistent....but always courteous. Mains are a reasonable size priced ~ $30 mark.

Very, very poor service. Upon entering it seemed that the staff were more interested in their own conversations. After this it was very difficult to get any attention, We had to ask for Menu's, then ask for our order to be taken. We waited nearly an hour for our meals, during the wait we had to chase up someone to... More

My husband and I went here for brunch on Saturday. We did not have a booking but were seated within 5 minutes. The service is great and the menu has plenty to choose from. I chose the turbo burrito which has bacon in it. I asked if they could switch the bacon for avocado - not a problem. It was... More

Put simply the coffee was great, no more needs to be said on that point. We arrived on a Sunday for breakfast without a booking, forgetting it was mothers day. It was especially busy but the wait staff were great, within minutes found a table for myself and my friends. The menu offered great choices, we all had the 'mini'... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a good friend. She was right on all accounts. The atmosphere was relaxed, tables spaced well apart from others. The staff were well mannered and nothing seemed to be a problem even when the restaurant was fully packed. The food was delicious if not a tad too large in serve. It was definitely... More

We must have arrived at just the right time (about 7:50am) because this place got busy quickly - mostly families with young kids. We were offered drinks as soon as we were shown to a table, which was appreciated. The coffee was delicious and our breakfast was faultless. We really liked the interior decorating as well. Great atmosphere!

I had a ceasar salad with chicken and it was as good as it gets. The service was excellent and the atmosphere in this village café/restaurant is really friendly. Well worth a visit.
