Wet wet Albany day, but inside the restaurant it was cosy. We had decided to try a luncheon for a birthday present. We are so pleased we did. Ordered fish and chips thinking basics. When it presented anything but basic. The fish was cooked perfectly, so difficult for most people. The chips were just right. And the coleslaw, well, I... More

Enjoyed our evening out with kids, friends and their kids - table of 9. Food was quite slow to come out and they missed one person's entreé on the set menu - that one never came out. Food was good though and service warm and friendly.

I rang ahead and spoke with Peter the chef regarding a vegan meal. The chickpea curry was yummy! He then presented me with an acquafaba meringue for dessert which was amazing. This is the second time I have eaten here and Peter has always put himself out to cook a yummy meal for me.

Four of us visited this restaurant on a chilly Albany evening. The restaurant was not crowded but busy enough for a Thursday evening. The menu choice is extensive and offers a range of dishes ranging in price do all budgets are catered for. We all opted for the three course set menu which was excellent value at $39.95 per head....

Went with the family on a Tuesday night. The menu was quite extensive and we all decided to choose from the mains instead of the set menu of $40pp. Our food was delicious and fresh and we all enjoyed it. We shared some delicious desserts - sticky date was yum! The only negative would be the prices of the dishes.... More

Came in for dinner with high expectations and left feeling slightly bemused. Having decided to settle for the set menu which was good value for less than 40pp my partner and I ordered the lollipop buffalo wings and garlic bread for the entree, the steaks, and 2 sticky date puddings. Buffalo wings and garlic bread were very average at best... More

I am obsessed with dining out as my waistline will attest and have had the good fortune to do so in many different countries. I reside in Perth and find it extremely difficult to find a restaurant that delivers the full package. By this I mean ambience, quality produce, excellent service, attractive drinks menu and value for money. When I... More

I'm a vegetarian and I had the vegetarian taster as a main and wow the flavour and freshness of the produce. I was too full for dessert.

Dropped in for a very late lunch and was greeted by very friendly staff - full menu available as well as the blackboard specials at a time when most kitchens would already be closed for the afternoon. Had excellent coffee, garlic bread and lamb shank on mash with peas and gravy and I the only regret I have is that... More
