We've never had a bad meal here and it is very sad that the owners are retiring in August. We'll just have to go more often. The menu is always fun and not too much to eat.

We had the 6 course surprise menus. What a great idea as the veggies in the party had as much choice as everyone else! This is somewhere where we will go to again.

Another wonderful meal at this lovely restaurant. The 6 course 'Surprise' menu never fails to thrill, with fabulously fresh and innovative dishes. Thanks to Julie and Steve and their team for making my birthday celebration special.
