“Great venue for weekend breakfast (or lunches or dinner)!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

I have now visited this great bistro in the middle of Craighall a couple of times and were impressed each time with the interesting menu, quality & presentation of the food! The most important being the taste, were very impressed with well balanced and extremely flavoursome dish I have ordered on my last visit. This is one of the best options for Bistro eating in the surrounding “Parks” areas, also far easier to find parking than in Parkhurst 4th Ave !

“"My Local Eaterie"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Fabulous freshly prepared food simply presented with flavour and flair. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served outside bistro style from daily changing menus either in an open attractive umbrella'd courtyard (smoking), or under an awning with water feature (non smoking). There is also a large inside comfortable dining area with an open kitchen and unique pizza oven out of which come the best pizzas in town!
Greg is a superb chef and restauranteur with great attention to detail and high expectations of his staff and service. They are genuinely hospitable and welcoming and though you may wish to savour your meal in a wonderful relaxed ambience, you can also just pop in for a quick snack or takeaway and know that the service will be quick and efficient.
This is my favourite 'cafe' - attractive to a wide range of clientele, offering sufficient variations of food & wine, and is consistently good.
A stand alone 'shop' with its own buzz open 7 days a week (from 1 July 2012) and situated in a quiet residential area.
Worth a visit with your partner, family or friends!

“A very good bistro in the northern suburbs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

This is a very good bistro in the middle of Craighall, with a very loyal following, therefore be sure to book over weekends and other special occasions.

Very good creative food, excellent service, good atmosphere but slightly pricey.

Will visit again.
