Very very fabulous

Very kid friendly with a playground. With two young kids they opened the kitchen early for us which was so nice. We couldn't stay for dinner but the menu looked amazing. The kids food was delicious.

Wow what a night it was full on and the staff and Chefs were run of their feet and there was not one complaint, everyone got their food in a good time, but between ordering and getting it the staff were so nice stopping to chat and and making sure people had water or drinks, I have been here twice...

Terribly unprofessional, poor service and over priced. Went to dinner with extended family. Booked a table for 8 when we arrived the table had not been reserved, stood around awkwardly waiting to be seated or even acknowledged. Eventually shown to a table no one was there to serve us. Helped ourselves to menus and ordered our own drinks at the... More

Our group of 40 were impressed as we enjoyed the Wednesday night specials of steak or chicken schnitzel with salad/chips/sauce. Prompt and happy service. Meals were of a good standard and well presented. Special dietary needs were catered for with care. Recommended.

We were staying next door at Flynn's Beach Resort so this was great as we could walk through the garden and enter via the back gate. We had a booking as it was Friday night. We were welcomed immediately on arrival and offered a choice of areas to sit in. We sat outside on the covered deck as it was... More

We just had a lunch here and it was a quiet time, but the meals were really very good - very tasty, creative recipes and generous (not bulked up with chips). The coffee was also excellent.

I was blown away firstly with the menu - it was so creative. Then when we all got our food (I got the scallop risotto with pork belly), I couldn't stop raving about it. This place was as good as many top restaurants in Sydney that I have been to. I highly recommend you check it out for yourself. I... More

I recently dined here with a group of friends from Melbourne and Sydney and we were surprised at the great range on the menu. Almost all of us picked something different and none of us could fault it! I had the Ribs that were marinated in a coffee and maple glaze. It melted in your mouth. We could not fault... More
