Tried to get in on our first night but booked out!! Booked for next night. We had been here last year and enjoyed everything. I had the Spaghetti Marinara which was a selection of all seafoods and mussels. A great dish. The Chicken Meredith was equally good so I was told

This restaurant was very pleasant and our dinner was delicious. The barramundi was mouth watering and very fresh indeed. My husband's eye fillet was tender and cooked to perfection. We would recommend this restaurant to others.

Went here with the family based on TA recommendations. So ordinary, bordering on 'bad'. Had rustic bruschetta - nothing special, arancini balls - not great, battered prawns - these were actually ok, anti pasto platter - definitely the worst I've personally ever had.

Pasta was delicious! Pizza wasn't the best I've had but was good nonetheless. Sticky date pudding was huge and tasty. Overall good honest food. A reliably good feed I would think. The young lady that served us was fantastic but could have done with some help. Would definitely go back.

The open fire was welcoming on a very cold night. A good menu choice ranging from pastas to pizza. Service very efficient and staff friendly. I had pizza which was served hot and was very tasty. Limited selection of wines by the glass.

The food was delicious, and the service both fast and... More
