I went there with my family, had a great dinner, the waitress was very friendly and efficient. Everyone was happy and left the restaurant with a full tummy as well.

“Exquisite meal”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Restaurant staff were friendly and considerate without being over attentive. All courses were presented attractively. The menu was imaginative, with a good choice for meat/fish or vegetarian eaters. The quality and freshness of the ingredients made this an excellent meal. The wine was pretty good too.

“Outstanding mains, dessert a let down”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

The restaurant is as beautiful as ever, service is impeccable, the range of choices is very good. We chose mains (steak for him, lamb for me) and we were both blown away by brilliant flavour, seriously good! Wines were very nice too. Desserts were beautifully presented but my deconstructed banana split just missed the mark in terms of flavours working well together. Would certainly go back again.

“WOW”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The service impeccable - unusual for us to give a tip, but we did. The food was outstanding and I can honestly say it was one of the best meals i have ever eaten. We would have loved desert but was way too full, and not a hefty price tag either. Overall it was a pity we were in Adelaide only one night as we would definitely have eaten there again.
