In my opinion, Townsville best restaurant. Have now dine there a number of times over the past 4 or so years and it has never failed to disappoint with great food, service and ambience. Ideal for that something a bit special. I look forward to my next visit!

Great service. Went with a large group and all the meals were great except the fish that was dry and overcooked.

A welcoming friendly greeting even though it is some months since we have been back. We are never disappointed by the food, the service and the friendly efficient way in which this restaurant conducts it's business. Quality and value throughout and great service from what would appear to be a whole new front of house staff that have maintained the... More

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been too. I could not fault the service, every course arrived on time and beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The food looked like works of art on the plates. So outstanding was the service, I ordered a glass of wine and when I tasted it I realised it was... More

Situated on the banks of the river, this restaurant has it all. A great view, cooling breezes and, for those who want to remain in the cool, a large air-conditioned dining area. Service is excellent and the menu, which changes constantly, is always interesting and has a great balance of flavours. The wine list is pretty good too! You will... More

Attentive staff, gourmet food, good selection of drinks. Dining out on the deck with fresh breezes from across the river made this a wonderful night out with family. Highly recommended.

One of my favourites for fine dining in town. Service is impeccable. Food is divine, and doesn't take an hour to get to your table! You really do get what you pay for, which is excellent in this case. New in town? Try this place first.

One of the most memorable foodies experiences so far, definitely worth a visit - every mouth full was sensational - I attended a 5 course evening with matching wines and returned the following weekend to be equally impressed. Service and meals are world class and worthy of the highest recommendation.
