Lovely cosy restaurant, it has it's charm and the place is relaxing and friendly. However, the waitress didn't offer any menus or wine list so we went to get the menus ourselves. It wasn't a big issue as she was otherwise friendly and talkative. We chose calamari as entree and it was a great choice, it was delicious. Very tender,... More

What a surprise. On entering the restaurant, it seemed dingy and a poor layout. However, once settled at the table the surroundings were quite rustic. We were handed the menu by a friendly waitress and wondered what was next. The menu, grubby A4 sheets on a clip board, which looked like they had been too close to a candle as... More

Came for lunch and we had the calamari and popcorn chicken as entrees. They were so delicious, so we had high hopes for our mains. We both ordered the eye fillet for our mains and they were incredible. Fantastic service and a huge drinks list too! Highly recommend!

Looks can be deceiving. This heritage listed log cabin in beautiful Olinda is far better than first perceived. The staff are friendly and service is prompt and the food is exceptional. I enjoyed one of the best Filet steaks I have tried in ages. Other choices are varied including Slow Cooked Pork Belly which my wife enjoyed, Chicken Parma, Huge... More

I went there for lunch and their menu is large and varied with the Poutine and Rissotto Balls really good. The staff are friendly and service is fast. This place is a lot better than the cafes in Olinda shopping area.

Well appearance can fool you. A bit rustic, a bit of a local waterhole, but extremely friendly and welcoming. The staff were just so much fun and made us very relaxed. But the biggest secret was the magnificent food, my partner had the daily special of coconut covered Barramundi which she absolutely loved while I had one of the best... More

Great little stop for a beer or a nice rustic meal. Always has a range of live entertainment. Seating options inside and out. Great place to sit by the fire on a winter night!
