“Can't wait to return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten in many fine restaurants, and this probably tops the list. We visited in a Sunday evening with our 12 year old daughter and elderly mother yet the menu and service meet all our requirements. Would highly recommend the miso flavoured fish dish, but a close second was both the lamb and steak dishes. Knickerbocker glory dessert was fab but nothing out-does an affagato with frangelico ......my only suggestion is to find a local hokey-pokey ice cream which would make it to die for!!!!

“Great service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

It was a busy holiday weekend and we didn't have a booking we just walked in and were greeted with a friendly smile and immediately seated. The menu was acceptable, the food good, and the service excellent.
