Our house overlooks Emerald, and for 10 years we have only popped in for the odd evening drink.....until last Sunday. We had lunch there, wow, it was great, I had lamb, not something I would normally eat. Lamb has never tasted so good. My husband had belly pork and that too tasted heavenly. Impressed and I hadn't even thought about dessert which was equally impressive, a heavenly concoction of three kinds of chocolate. Not the regulation raki after either but a distillation of mastic, different and so nice. Will be going again and soon.
