Dear customer, thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review.

A five star review is always welcomed; especially when it is about our pork belly. The pork belly is always a popular choice, and we agree, it is just excellent.

Visit again soon,

Cheers

“Great for coffee”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

This place has a very good vibe. However we use it for coffee and not so much for dinner - the waited was a bit over-familiar.

Dear customer, thank you for taking the time to write a review.

We do agree with you thinking our coffee is great, we enjoy a cup or two ourselves!
Why not come and give us a try for dinner during the week for a shorter waiting time?
We hope to see you again,

Cheers.

“a little on the pricey side, but great food”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Have always enjoyed breakfasts here and thought we would try dinner here. Started with Wood Oven Ciabatta with olive oil and balsamic vinegar - was pretty good. Thought that the bread would have been better if it wasn't so toasted... made it a little hard to dip into the olive oil and balsamic and sop it up.

My Linguini Marinara didn't quite look like the one they have in the photo on their website, although it did have great flavour with the right amount of chili to compliment but not overwhelm the seafood flavours. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes their seafood and i would eat it again. The Penne Al'Ragu was quite good didn't quite have the depth of flavour as the Marinara but was tender and satisfying.
Staff were good and didn't keep us waiting for too long.
