Six of us visited Hone’s garden for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The service was relaxed and friendly and the food was great. Loved the calamari, fish tacos and especially the wood fired pizzas. Will definitely be visiting again.

Highly skill pizza Chef watched the burning oven without any help of modern temperature gauge. Only watching the “rise” in the dough and rotating the angle created the best pizza. All these can only be accomplished by years and years of practice. Some might find...More
