We have been to this restaurant many times as a couple, with family and friends and to celebrate special occasions. We have always enjoyed our meals and evening. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, the food excellent. Highly recommend the Pork Belly - fantastic!

Beautiful setting, not very varied food though and after nine years it would be nice to have something a bit different

Had a birthday lunch here, and was so impressed with my meal. Was by far the best snapper I have ever had. so succulent and the beer batter super light. The pork belly was to die for. Portion sizes are just perfect. Can't wait to go back!

We had the experience of eating at this amazing restaurant on Saturday 8th August, 2015. We were not sure what to expect, and were amazed at the food which was just devine. Surroundings are really magical and the setting for the restaurant has ambience which makes it all the more special. Staff are very helpful and friendly which made the... More

Had a very nice meal here. Especially loved the panna cotta. Was lucky to also get a discount from a grab one deal which was a bonus too.

The service was good, but was left a little disappointed with the fillet steak dinner, a small piece of steak the size of a hockey puck, 6 green beans and a small bowl of soggy chips. Management did only charge for half of the meal at the end. Really not sure if we would go back again.

I was last here 2 years ago and 1-2 years before that. I don't know if the owners are the same but I do know the quality of food and service is the same. Great! We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals when here recently for a 30th birthday gathering. Excellent menu and delicious flavours. Well worth a visit!
