Surprise

Didn't know this place existed till we looked it up places to eat nearby. The bar was crowded, there was a surfing championship on nearby but we managed to get a table. Good service, nice atmosphere and surprising good meals. Couldn't ask for more

Some friends and I were staying at the Margaret's beach resort, so this restaurant was an extremely convenient place to dine given that it is on the same block. What a disappointment.

Had an amazing porterhouse steak here a couple of nights ago while staying at the attached resort Margaret's Beach Resort. After a long day traveling down from Perth with several stops a nice cold, crisp glass of local sav blanc and great meal was a welcome start to our experience

We enjoyed a very good meal on a recent trip to the South West. The service was spot on for an unannounced table of 10. Good wine selection and a really relaxed atmosphere.
