Quality food and service in this restaurant adjacent to the Whale Inn and located on a hill above the inlet/harbour. Book ahead, as it is popular, and try for a window table to enjoy the the sunset while your dine

This place is as good as the hype. Every course had beautiful flavours and high attention to detail. The view over the ocean was phenomenal. Perfect for a special occasion if you're used to high-end Canberra or Sydney restaurants.

Very disappointed, the service was brilliant but the food was lacking flavour. The fish was insipid and the mussels were shrivelled and overcooked. The duck didn't taste like duck but like chicken. Very expensive for what we got, I don't mind paying for good food...More

HI. To be honest i am not to sure. I do know they have a very extensive menu and do go out of their way to cater for all tastes. Maybe call them direct at 44762411 to ask.
