We had dinner there 2 times. Very good and well presented. We liked the interior and sat inside both times. Cosy!

“Good Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

You will need to book here as it is a really popular spot. The food and service is great. The restaurant is within a outdoor mall/walk and while it offers no view it certainly makes up for it with a well thought out menu and wine list.

“Beaut food in a great setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

The food was fantastic- barramundi with prawns, a Moreton Bay Bug and beurre blanc. Couldn't squeeze dessert in though- never mind. Maybe next time.

“Well worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

Accommodating and attentive service, excellent food. Wine list was a bit limiting, but that's the only slight negative. Value was fine. Just wish we could have fitted in desserts!
