It was a good place while open but a building fire and light rail road works ultimately caused its closure in 2014.

One of the few restaurants on the Gold Coast (Southport) that serves not only top cuisine but also first rate entertainment. Jeff the owner goes out of his way to ensure your experience is first class.

Being a Friday night we were all thirsty and had to wait in excess of 20 minutes from when we placed our drink order to be told they needed to chill the wine. What the?

The decor is fantastic, very different from anything else in the area and it sets up a great... More
