“Beautiful restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Wow...the restaurant itself has a very nice feel. I ordered the Ribeye and it was tender with a beautiful flavour. My entrée was the King Prawns....very nice. My huband ordered the pork belly for an entrée and I had a bite. I'm glad I got my prawns. If you get sides make sure and get the mashed potatos...so smooth and creamy. For the dessert I had the Bombe Alaska...incredible. My husband and I celebrated our 11 year anniversary here tonight and we enjoyed everything about it...from the ambiance, to the service, to the food. This restaurant could easily get 10 stars in my book. Lovely. If you want a good steak and seafood with excellent service then definitely come here. Also, the price really wasn't too bad for all that we got. We were stuffed when we left. Will definitely go back.

“Simply the best in Moonee Ponds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

I am now a regular at this restaurant. The food is really very good and the service is also very good. I have my favorite dishes one of which is the seafood gumbo. ..I think it's their best dish especially now it's winter. They have now introduced cured meats from Italy. ..Wow, how good is that. .. If your after a predictable high quality meal you can't go past this restaurant.
