This restaurant is a hidden gem. Efficient service, great menu choices, professionally presented, so delicious. Can recommend the pate and the seafood risotto, intense seafood flavor. Will be back!

“Excellent food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

Dined here with my wife for my birthday on Saturday (18/01/14). Food, wine and service were excellent. The finger lime and coconut crème brulee was amazing. A nice touch was the way several of the staff thanked us as we left. Well done!

“Why did we not come here earlier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Excellent service from the moment we walked in, we were seated very quickly, water was brought to the table and we had menus and our drinks order taken, good wine selection of both reds and whites. My partner and I shared an entree, we had the baked Camembert, oh my goodness, how divine. Main meals we had the lime and coconut chicken and the prawn spaghetti, both perfectly seasoned and perfect portion sizes. We had to order dessert after the fantastic other courses and again we were not disappointed with an amazing sticky date pudding and a ice cream sundae. All in all a perfect dining experience and right around the corner from where we live. One observation that I made which was really good, was that they kept accepting customers for dinner right up to the time which we left, which was 9.30pm.

Brilliant slice of Europe nestled in New Farm. Unbelievably good food, prompt friendly service who go out of their way to accommodate every request.
