This restaurant is ever popular and booking is essential. Service is outstanding, from being greeted at the door to the careful attention to detail. The owners are involved and visible in running their restaurant. This is what makes it consistently good. A table on the verandah was great for a warm summer evening. Starters were prompt, although the main took a little longer. It was really busy and they kept us informed, so kudos there. I had the Brie to start, which was rather tasty followed by the fillet with gorgonzola. Steak was done exactly as requested. Desserts are particularly appealing and my children enjoyed. Wine selection is limited as with all south coast restaurant. This is a restaurant not to be missed.

We recently moved to Southbroom and have eyed out this restaurant on more than one occasion but were waiting for the right time to visit. From the outside it looks quite inviting and elegant and visions of long lunches and candlelit dinners with creamy decor sprang to mind. So the right time arrived and off we went, to show off our new fancy restaurant, with our friends and family from overseas. Our visions and hopes were not fulfilled. Plastic chairs, paper napkins, old cutlery and a mediocre menu and taste experience were not quite what we were expecting. This restaurant however, is in the most heavenly position alas it offers no real character of its own to complement and enhance the surrounds and to us, it has a sad air of desertedness about it - just a place to sit and eat and leave soon after. Our neighbours raved about the place and the food so we were confidently expecting a great evening. Perhaps our expectations were a little too high.

Tough to find and tough to chew!
Please list the address as "drive to the end of outlook Rd" would have helped us to find the restaurant in a street with no numbers.
Tragically there was a wiff of sewage from time to time and the steaks were terribly tough.
The only redeeming feature was the "beyond pleasant waitress"
We will not go back

Beautiful place in prestigious southern Southbroom (not easy to find but well worth the effort!). French/Italian cuisine with a twist, very atmospheric place and always best to reserve a table. Not cheap but great for a special treat.
