Very busy

This place has delicious food and prompt service. It does get very busy and very loud particularly with the tables crammed in. I'd recommend coming here but it's not at all suitable for wheelchairs, young children/babies or people who get claustrophobic!

We always eat here when we visit Albany. The owner always checks you are happy, even moved us to a better table near the window and gave me an extra large serve of their Delicious soup once.

My husband and I dinned at this restaurant last night 1/2/2016. The food was very sub standard and certainly not in any way could be considered, as claimed, fine dining. I do not complain about very much in life but this was just awful.

We ate here on consecutive nights while staying in Albany. We found the service and food definitely up to our expectations. We ordered the 3 course meal on the first occasion and a la carte the next night - neither disappointed. I would recommend booking if u intend to go here as if is extremely popular and many people have... More

Food (vege tasting plate and seafood salad) was either bland, inappropriately flavoured or over cooked. Otherwise, place was fine.

My husband and I dined here on Saturday night. The meals served were terrible. My husband ordered Vermouth Chicken and I ordered Vietnamese Prawn Salad. The chicken was tough, the sauce and vegetables disgusting. The mashed potato was like reconstituted (Deb) potato. The vegetables were overcooked. The prawns were okay but served cold. The salad was undressed and a very... More

We enjoyed a 3 course set menu on a Saturday night while on a short break away in Albany. Having been to this restaurant on a previous visit we were pleased that we were able to again experience the delicious food, cooked to perfection, excellent customer service, pleasant ambiance and great value. This restaurant does not require pretentious advertising..the food... More
