we arrived on a night that was booked out for a large group, however just when we thought that we would have to go elsewhere - we were given a table. I am really glad that we didn't miss out.

We were recommended the waterview by friends and so glad they did recommend this little gem in Rainbow, we did not order the hot rock but off the menu and the Salmon was just delicious, the vegetables were very fresh and was extremely well presented. Our waitress was attentive and very efficient. I will be returning again very soon.

I had the hot rock eye fillet and cold rock ice cream and both were absolutely fantastic. The service was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. There were 9 of us and all the food came out together and no-one left anything on the plate which is a sign of how much everyone enjoyed their meals. Friends came up from... More

This restaurant has daily specials so it is good value. One of our meals was really good, but the other one was average. A pleasant outlook.
