Stunning location surrounded by bush with friendly kookaburas and rosellas. Lovely food with gluten free options and great service too.

“Absolutely wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

This is a fabulous restaurant, if you are looking for good hardy food and lots of it with a laugh a minute this is most definitely the place for you. We had a love song sung to us for our 20th wedding anniversary, interrupted by the singer himself to ask us how do you make 20 years, he was hilarious. We had a really fun and memorable night.

“Horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012 via mobile

Don't waste your time here. My whole experience was horrible. Whilst the only saving grace may be it's location, it's really not with worth your while.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2007

Beautiful location in the Dandenongs, surrounded by lush old growth forest. Watch rosellas and kookaburras hop around the trees outside of your window (the staff may feed them for you), while enjoying classic European dishes or tasty Australian game such as crocodile or kangaroo, together with a local wine from the nearby Yarra Valley. Check out the Aborigine sculptures at nearby William Ricketts Sanctuary or watch the city lights from the top of Mt. Dandenong at night.
