Pleasant.

We walked in without a booking and were shown to a table relatively quickly. The waiter was friendly and pleasant but not very efficient - we had to ask for things more than once. The food was lovely using many ingredients from their own garden and they were accordingly superior. My meal was not... read more

The B&B where we are staying suggested to visit this place for their happy hour, so we did. Nice and friendly staff. I had a glass of wine which was very very good, my girlfriend had a mojito which was also very tasty (maybe a bit too much ice in it). I also ordered 12 oysters, which are part of... More

Came to this dear little place twice, once for drinks in the afternoon and the following night for dinner. We had the mini degustation menu. Food was well presented and generally tasty. Maybe just a little light on for men. I was happy within the portion size. Good wait staff. Would visit again.

We popped in for a light meal as we knew there was live music playing so that was our draw card . Place was very busy. We opted for a meal at the bar area as we just weren't up for spending the prices on the restaurant menu. The atmosphere was really good but the meal size was teeny tiny!... More

Everything was fantastic except for one thing... The atmosphere is amazing, there was live music, our waiter was fun and engaging, the owner chatted with us and was attentive, the food was dynamically presented and delicious - it was heading towards being the perfect night... and then - everyone disappeared. Our waiter disappeared without saying goodbye or explaining and was... More

This is a restaurant full of character, different rooms to sit in. Lots on the menu (wine included). We had a chef's selection. It was basically a degustatation. I have food intolerances & allergies; the chef was totally accommodating, changing and adapting courses with no drama at all. The food was fantastic. I have to say the eye fillet would... More

My husband and I had dinner here on a Wednesday night.. $50 per person for 5 courses with a sparkling wine included. The food was absolutely delicious, presented beautifully and good portion size. A bonus was the cocktails at happy hour b/w 4-6pm only $10! I had a 'cosmopolitan' so good had a second. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Service very slow. Only ordered 6 fresh oysters. Took more than 30 minutes to come out and it was not at all busy. Beer was a bit ordinary as well. Then was told that our order had been misplaced. Then another table gets served ours. Very very bad service. It seems no one knows what's going on.
