Came with my husband for dinner. Restaurant not very busy. Some items were not available on the menu. Had to wait a while for our meals, was told they were one chef down. The food was good, enjoyable and tasty. The dessert menu did not appeal to us. The service (apart from the timing of the meals) was pleasant and... More

four of us ate a lunch here and had a just average meal. the fish dish was simple and lacked any true flavor layering to make you want more. the pizza had a tomato sauce which lacked any depth. it may well have just come right out of a can. common' guys, show some passion for the culinary art.

Great relaxed atmosphere. Possibly a little bit like a bar for some. Service was quick, and confident. Drinks arrived virtually instantaneously. Kids were well looked after - kids menu, playground.

You do not want to miss out on dining here! We went twice in one week because we could not get enough. Staff are great, the food is out of this world and they even have a play station corner and playground for the kids. One of the best restaurants we have been to anywhere!!

We were very lucky to find this gem. The degustation menu is unbelievably good value. It looks like a pub but serves gourmet meals at a moderate price. We were amazed at the different tastes offered...7 for $70!
