Thanks for sharing your feedback. We're sincerely sorry to hear you weren't able to enjoy your visit with us and chose to go elsewhere to dine. Although the Gold Coast in Winter is still very mild compared to your native New Zealand, locals here are very adverse to chilly nights – as a hospitality establishment we sometimes need to have...

Our food was delicious and a varied menu to choose from but quite pricey for both the portion sizes and ingredients. Abit of a cliched and tired hang out on the formerly happening Tedder Ave. Very polite staff. Better restaurants in the area.

Food overcooked,pork belly drowned by flavour of Rosemary. Ginormous chewy tasteless oysters. Caesar salad looked like it had been through a kitchen slicer/diver. Rude barstaff. No value for money.

We ate at this great restaurant twice in a four day period as the food was terrific and the service faultless! Try the double roasted duck and the beautiful desserts amongst other great dishes. Lovely buzz in the restaurant - not noisy but friendly. We will certainly be going back.

We dropped in yesterday afternoon (Anzac Day) for a late lunch (snack). We ended up having a meal - all good. Staff were good - we were greeted at the door, and didn't get the hard sell. We had a pizza, the calamari (entree) and the bruschetta, and this cost about $75. We were talking business, and the staff were... More
