I love this place. Its my regular go to place for a romantic dinner, they have a good selection of food and a good range of salads which I struggle finding in other restaurants. The service is always 10/10 the owner is always on the ball. Value for money with the service you get is great. They don't over pack... More

The restaurant held the room open for this special event and although quite small managed to have an area set aside for the bride and her guests. The meal was sumptuous and served by a friendly waitress who also took photos when required. Overall we came away satisfied and happy.

We booked on short notice but was warmly received and seated promptly. The lamb shanks and kangaroo were cooked to perfection. The sauces were incredible and just enough with out covering the whole display. Even the NZ pinot and the Bargara ale went down so well and complimented our meal. This is a must eat restaurant and a big ,well... More

We dined here for yesterday (Saturday) for lunch and each chose a special, rump steak (medium) and grilled red emperor. As soon as our meals were delivered the young chef began nervously watching our reactions from his kitchen window. And rightly so. The steak was very well done, my fish was a 3inch piece of leather. We would have said... More

Staff welcoming, and ultra (?)- efficient service. However very noisy. Food was fine, but not according to description. Thai beef salad was served with basic English salad: no coriander, mint or lime etc. Entree scallops were minute. Dry martini was mainly vermouth with minor gin. Could do better ...

We stumbled on this place thinking it was a Thai restaurant and much to our surprise and delight, it was a modern restaurant serving fresh and locally prepared dishes. Excellent selection of wines and their entrees were a nice blend of meat, seafood and pasta. We had the lamb shank as well as the fettuccine with calamari and prawns and... More

Visited for lunch. Were seated at a table next to the front windows, as were all other diners that came in as well. This is probably to make the restaurant look busy to those driving by. Only 2 other couples were there when we were. We both ordered the lunch special of rump steak with salad & chips. On the... More
