Best value for food, service and price. Great choice of local produce on the menu that compliment the local wines.

We booked ahead as this restaurant has always been very busy when we've been in Albany. We chose the '3 course set menu' this time as the items on it are some of our favourites. Everything we had was very good and at $35 a head, also excellent value. Staff efficient & friendly. Highly recommended.

Some girlfriends after a show at the AEC looking for a treat for dinner. Pete (and Co.) came through! Calm, steady service; awesome $29 specials and a couple of glasses of way better than ordinary house reds, the girls were well impressed. Thanks Pete - and Co.

This place has top food at respectable prices with top service. Quite a wide range on the menu too, I consider this a must visit. Great tap beer too.

The food here is of a high standard, but the place is let down by the noise level and the rushed service. They need to invest is some soundproofing or just join all the tables together as it's impossible to hear the people at your own table when the restaurant is full. I was a bit disappointed that the menu... More

The restaurant was packed when we arrived so staff kindly took our number and called us when a table became available. We decided on the set menu (3 courses- very good value), but were aware that staff (kitchen staff) were sat waiting for us to finish so that they could go home (all staff came out and sat on a...
