Erin and Barry ensured that my birthday dinner went off without a hitch. They were pleasant to deal with, the food and service were excellent and the private room had an intimate atmosphere.

We were introduced to this bistro about a year ago by friends, and have returned several times with other friends. It just gets better each time. The friendly staff are very accommodating, the menu is a winner every time…we will just keep going back.

Our entrees were asparagus salad, enhanced with cress, goat cheese, cherry tomatoes and some slivered toasted almonds. The main dish was pan roasted barramundi with a vegetable fritter and bean puree. Wine was a pleasan Cabernet Merlot. The service is very friendly but not... More

She found the two entrees to be very nice and more than sufficient for her. I had the scallops on a very pleasant tasting cauliflower... More
