Better than expected

We stayed at the motel and had dinner in this restaurant. We had dinner in the evening and then breakfast the next morning. All meals were excellent! I had Risotto for dinner and husband had chowder followed by lamb shanks. Would definitely eat / stay here again.

We were a little stunned when we walked into this restaurant. We had read the great reviews on here but it seemed we were at the wrong restaurant. The waitress was very nice and attentive but the decor mixed with michael jackson music was just a little bizarre. We ordered our food and it seemed like the chef had taken... More

We went out for a lovely meal. I had the eye fillet. It was cooked beautifully and the ginger and marmalade pudding was exceptional. My wife had the porterhouse and apple and rubarb desert. Is was great also. The service was good and the Restraunt was not noisy A superb night and would recommend

Went here with my husband and the food was delicious. The menu has been scaled back but the grilled Atlantic salmon was beautiful and the lamb shanks were melt in the mouth. I was surprised how cheap it was, $100 for entrees, breads, mains and two rounds of drinks. Great value is hard to find in mackay. We will definitely... More

Could not fault the service - they bent over backwards to accommodate us including bringing our food out quickly as we were attending a show at the nearby Entertainment Centre. Food was superb, a great menu - one of those where you would likely have tried everything offered and it was well priced.

Have been here a few times and found it a very cosy little restaurant ideal for couples. Food is nice and service pretty good. Have also dined in groups. Staff were friendly.

Probably the best customer service in Mackay. Our waiter was friendly, funny and very attentive. The food however, was burnt (oysters killpatrick) and overcooked (steak was ordered medium rare, was very well done). It was a real shame that we won't be returning as the restaurant itself was beautiful and had a nice, romantic feel to it.
