For about the fourth or fifth time this year the obligatory family birthday dinner had me at this restaurant. Again I ordered off the a la carte menu and this meal hit the mark. Meat was beautifully cooked and the veggies were scrumptious. The two wait staff on duty seemed more relaxed and friendly this time around despite a big... More

I ate here both nights I was in Nowra, partly because it was right next door to my accommodation, but also because of the interesting dining experience and great value for money. The first night I had the mixed grill (one prawn, a lamb cutlet, small chicken breast fillet and chunk of steak) and I was surprised when my meal... More

The experience of having a raw steak delivered to you on a red hot stone then watching it cook in front of you is certainly a bit odd, but providing you know how you want your meat cooked it is a very enjoyable meal. A few thoughts though, don't wear anything special as whatever you wear will smell like whatever... More

Great food, fabulous cut of steak, and excellent entree. The place was packed mid-week so obviously well patronised by the locals.

I didnt think the experience of cooking your own steak/prawns on a hot stone was a good one. Not much flavor, the sauces weren't good, we tried 3 different ones. Overall, I would not repeat.

I have dined here a few times now and the maitre d / manager is always friendly, professional and keen to ensure that all is well. And yes maybe I should be ordering the 'cook your own on a rock' as the name of the restaurant implies but I don't go out for a meal to cook myself and I'm... More

Great menu to choose from, with food that you cook to your liking. It is busy so do make sure you book in advance. Staff are friendly.
