My husband took me here for my birthday meal whilst we were travelling...what a great meal and service. I had the marron. What else should a girl have for her birthday and he ordered the crispy pork belly. We followed with the chocolate brûlée and the pear and fig pudding. It was delicious and service was marvellous. Coffee and cake... More

I love coming here. Been twice for dinner, which we couldn't fault the food, the service was prompt and friendly and the overall ambience and views in the evening were just breath taking. So pleased when I returned here with my son earlier this week, which again, the staff went out of their way to make him feel comfortable -... More

I would like to say that I have just had one of the best breakfasts going, the Thai Bacon & Crispy Eggs was sensational, I added some fresh chilli for a little more zing. This is a mouth watering dish prepared today by their Japanese chef, lived it!

I do try to go back often enough - we live near here, and I really want it to be good, but alas, it I think it is a losing battle. The service is OK, geed even. The actual ingredients are good - but it is as if the dishes are being held ransom by art and presentation - and... More

Reading the menu I believed we were in for an amazing breakfast. BUT I could not have been more let down. Cold stale pancakes, cold hard bacon, toast so hard my 10 year old son couldn't cut it and the hash brown not fluffy inside crunchy outside left over roast potato warmed up and put into a ramekin. The worst... More

We came back after having a girls lunch in August and this time the family all came. I am a regular but for our friends from Perth it was only their 2nd visit. One of our friends has a specific dietary requirement and he was super impressed at the efforts the chef went to in order to accommodate. He said... More

The weather was a farmer's delightful season opener, but the atmosphere inside was warm and welcoming. Slight delay in delivery of drinks, offset by complimentary champers from Jenny, the lunch of fish n chips, chicken sambo on Turkish bread both enjoyable,- total of $70.00 with a drink each. Parking at the door.
