Just finished dining with friends, the food was excellent and the service was fantastic, friendly and very efficient. I had the duck risotto which was delicious and reasonably priced. Highly recommend

The pub has recently changed hands and gone back to good wholesome Australian menu. The serves were large, hot and freshly... More

Gone is the Greek menu and original owner is now in charge with a fantastic Gastro Pub menu. Our choice was Eggplant Parma and Ricotta Gnocchi and they were to die for. Fab food, good wine, great views. What more can you ask for. Welcome back Lance.

Went with my partner as we stayed at the nearby Kalimna Woods Cottages. We found this was the best meal we had in the area. It was presented well, tasted delicious, arrived in a satisfactory time, and the staff were courteous. I liked the decor of the place also. Our young male waiter did make a couple of errors (which...
