Well worth a visit

Attentive staff with a great knowledge of the menu and well versed in all the wines on the extensive wine list. We only ordered main courses but from what I saw the entrees looked... read more

Came through Port Macquarie on a trip up the coast from Newcastle. We chose to spend the night in Port mainly to have dinner here again and we were not disappointed. The menu and service were both fantastic without being pretentious. Lou, it was great chatting with you again and thanks for a great night. Started with the pork belly... More

My husband and I were looking forward to taking our friends who were visiting to what we had read was a highly acclaimed restaurant in Port Macquarie. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed overall. The service was poor and the ambience of the restuarant lacking. The food was very good. However, very expensive as was the wine. I have since learned... More

A true delight from the food to the high level of service. The owner, Lou is welcoming and makes all feel special..it is top range in the price department but saying that the level of excellence is consistent and do believe all who have dined there would agree...I struggle to find fault with it..

We are locals and dine at this restaurant when we are celebrating something really special. The view to the sea and restaurant décor is peaceful and calming. The menu is explained personably. The variety makes it hard to choose, but well worth the contemplation. Our meal was delicious from beginning to end. Pricy but for a special celebration worth it!
