Was a lovely meal with great service. Beautiful setting also. On the expensive side but seemed to be on par with everything else in the area. Worth it, thanks!

Stumbled upon this restaurant while turning around and what a find! I can honestly say that the salmon main course is the best meal I have EVER had. Every mouthful had to be savoured for the wonderful taste sensation that it was! I can't emphasise enough how superb it was. Staff were friendly, the decor tasteful and warm and the... More

My wife booked for a family birthday for 14 people in early December . Because it was close to christmas she booked 3 months in advance. 3 weeks before the event she rang the restaurant and was told they had booked a wedding over the top of us and our booking was cancelled - no phone call, no consultation, nothing....

An excellent evening enjoyed by the whole family. Food was outstanding with a particular mention of the steaks (2) done to perfection ... best .. and prime venison experienced by european visitor equally outstanding. Not too busy so timing was appropriate for main course ... birthday cake was ordered early in week and they exceeded expectations.

We've eaten here many times over the years. The food is tasty and well presented, portion sizes perfect (not too large, not too small). We've always found the service friendly and relaxed. On a recent visit, I really enjoyed the blue cod fish pan fried atop seasonal fresh potatoes with beans, tomatoes and asparagus, drizzled with a basil sauce. My... More

Went here for a meal on a Friday night. Firstly had difficulty making a reservation - called and left message and they never rang back, then they didn't answer the phone. Had to go in person to make a booking. Arrived at 7.30pm but it was at least 20 minutes before we ever saw a menu. It was 8.30 before... More

I stopped in here twice. Once for a flat white (coffee) and once for breakfast. HUGE portions and everything was very fresh and delicious. They have a big outdoor seating area that is very nice with a great view of the ocean.

We had a nice relaxing lunch at Ma Maison today. Local salmon for me, the flat bread entree was fantastic.
