Listening to a great singer over lunch brought back many pleasant memories - terrific selection of songs. Most pleasant outdoor setting - easy to see why all those arriving asked for an outside table. BUT that is where it stopped. Service is friendly but very slow - 20 minutes to get a carafe of water, etc. The menu is varied... More

We were guests of "locals" , and what a treat. An extensive "specials" menu, any requests accommodated. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere only surpassed by the food. A great night.

Food outstanding. Wine list decent. Ambiance and decor is lovely - al fresco seating around a fountain under large white umbrellas and at night - candles on the table and twinkle lights coiled in the trees. Sitting outside whether at lunch or dinner, always transports me and makes me feel as if I am in Europe - in a good... More

Live around the corner from this place, visit it often and am never disappointed. Nice and central, but off the beaten track. Good for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Lovely place in Musgrave, with an outside and inside table setting. I had the lamb burger which was not what I expected, it was alot better, the mince was curried and packed full of flavour. My wife had the French toast brioche with crispy bacon which was just as good and will be perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Food is good, price is fair, venue unpretentious and half outdoors under the trees. Waiters delightful and service good bar for being slow. I suspect a kitchen bottleneck on busy days and thus not a venue if a quick turnaround is required.

The perfect setting for a Sunday morning breakfast. The fountain and trees drain away all stress. Not for the guest who is in a hurry. Highly recommended!
