One of a few great places to eat in Palm Cove. Sophisticated but relaxed. Unpretentious staff. Fabulous food. Luv it!

“Nice Settings to Start”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

Started with a couple of cocktails which were very tasty; a dirty lychee and a passionista before an entree of crab ravioli and the special which was a prawn and advocado mousse.
The ravioli was average, the pasta was very fluffy and flour-ee, though half a bbq'd bug on top kind of made up for it.
The mousse however was bloody sensational! Served alongside a piece of pork belly the flavors of chili and mango were sublime. Worth going back for.
For mains we had the beef cheek which was unfortunately dry and the crumbed haloumi cheese and veggies which my wife enjoyed but I thought was too derelict of taste.

“Location is the only drawcard here, food was disappointing.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

Entrees were quite good however main courses were sent back. Only time both myself and dining partner have sent food back in over 20 years of restaurant going. Crab ravioli was super dry, barely identifiable sauce was powdery and pasta almost raw. Salad was simply raw ingedients finely cut and thrown into a bowl. No dressing or attention to presentation.
How was this handled by staff?...we were told they had served it up many times that evening without complaint. We were offered 50% off the pasta meal which was not eaten and was frankly inedible. Oh well...never to return and has prompted first trip advisor review ever. A night of firsts!! Wait staff were polite but knowledge of wine list was lacking . Thank goodness for a nice bottle of wine and gorgeous location.
