Had a great meal tonight with my family. The service was great and the food was really lovely. Had beautiful risotto and the family had steak and fish and chips. Certainly relaxed atmosphere with beautiful views of Watson's Bay. So pleased we visited this restaurant.

We had a nice little lunch at this restaurant. We had pizzas, which are huge and tasted nice. The owner is very friendly.

Waiter was fantastic. One of our party was very allergic to shellfish and he made sure to prepare food and utensils to avoid any contamination. He also offered to let us sample some of the house wine. Service was very, very good. We had a variety of excellent dishes including pizza, squid and fish and chips. Desserts were excellent and...

The best thing to say is that the food was adequate. Service was slow despite the place being almost empty and considering that it was 5 days before Christmas, the ambience was totally flat. Based on the deal being a Spreets voucher, value for money is as good as average. The thought of playing full prices for this restaurant ($120-$150... More

Well...the quality of the food was good enough I suppose, but very, very forgettable, and if I may say...very plain....the main did not come with... More

....although the food was good I felt sorry for the waiter who had to apologise about numerous dishes and wines not being available on the night we ( 7 diners) were there. He stated the owner was not well so no one did the buying. Shame about that! But thumbs up to the lovely gentleman....sorry I did not get your... More

We went there for dinner with kids. The food was great, the staff/owner/chef (not sure who was who) were working so hard and I could tell that they are proud of what they do! It was more a cafe than a restaurant but the menu was extensive and filling. It was a shame we went there after dark, because the... More
