Highly recommended for visitors and locals who enjoy fine dining in a more relaxed environment and not having to spend a fortune. Small little venue with big happy vibe.

I had the barramundi with pumpkin and lentil curry and basmati rice. It was to die for. everything was cooked to perfection. the... More

We order Lamb shanks and pork belly and both dishes were... More

Double cooked pork belly with pear an absolute show stopper, lamb shank very nice but the roasted strawberries with vanilla ice cream almost stole the show. The owner/ head chef was personable with being over the top. Tiny restaurant so "in or out " of... More
