“Lovely food and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

We were allocated the "kitchen view" table with a unique view into the kitchen as the food is prepared - very interesting and a brave move for any establishment!
The service was excellent and the food was very good. Well worth a visit when you are in the area.

“Brilliant service - Donald a star with kids and special dietary requirements!!”

The service was terrific, the food great, the attention to detail and to our specific dietry requirements (sugar and wheat free) beyond belief. Truly worth of every 5 star review received on Tripadvisor.

“Fabulous eatery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Make sure you make a reservation. It can get very busy even out of season. The food is really excellent, it's our favourite place to eat out when we are in Wilderness.

“Go for Malay Seafood Curry!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Well, we went there with my friends solely based on the reviews people had.
I ordered Hake which was not good as compared to many other small/not so hyped places. However, highlight was the dish : Malay seafood curry, it was amazing. perfectly made

Decor is fine, not great , not a fine dining place anyways.

Concluding, if you miss it, it is not a train smash, there are billion other places may be better.
