“Fabulous food, fantastic staff”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I went here for dinner with my parents just ahead of a great big thunderstorm. When the storm hit, the restaurant lost all electricity however not once were the staff flustered they just carried on like true professionals and delivered one of the most amazing meals! The gas still worked so the chefs managed to cook in an extremely hot kitchen (no aircon after one of the hottest days on record) and the food couldn't have looked or tasted better. Simply stunning. The candle light dinner actually made for a memorable meal and lovely atmosphere. The staff are true professionals and such lovely down to earth people. I would definitely recommend!

“Great Ambience!”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

We came from Singapore and were very happy that our choice turned out well.

The restaurant was easy to locate and as soon as we alighted from our car, we were welcome by the nice scent from the flowers.

The Ambience was great with nice italian music playing softly in the background.

We took a stroll outside the restaurant and took lots of pictures while waiting for our food to be served. Food was great and the service was pleasant too!

Overall excellent and relaxing evening for us. We will recommend it to all our friends!

“Real hospitality, great food, perfect ambiance”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This restaurant is a perfect place to get a great dinner in an almost Italian tradition.
The food was prepared with passion by the chef. My pasta with seafood was excellent. We would love to go back! Thanks to Marc ( I think that was his name) for his great hospitality!

“Perfect Food, Perfect Location”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

The food, staff and ambience of this restaurant was fantastic. The place was very busy which is always a good sign but we never felt rushed as if we needed to make way for another patron.
We sat outside on the verandah and watched the sun go down while eating our meal.
