We were staying in apartments close by so had no restaurant. We were very pleased to find this gem so close which saved the walk into Airlie!! We had 2 great meals, there was a great variety to choose from and we weren't disappointed. John+Bridget +the other staff were so welcoming. We would recommend this to food+wine lovers!

Good selection of local foods and wines The wine list is varied but trends more toward the local wines, which are not all that bad...

The meals are fairly priced, prepared with care, and served with a smile.

The meals were well presented, ample portions, just amazingly scrumptious and well worth trying all sections of the menu. also the family interaction , all was done to make sure your dining experience (which it certainly was) just left you feeling satisfied, and wanting to return for another feast.

Breakfast and lunch were good value, dinners much less so. We didn't go for a room+meal backage, so we packed our own breakfasts and had a light bar meal in the evening, which was perfect for us.

The food was plentiful and delicious, with a very broad range of varities and choices. We were never left hungry, if anything we had to buy bigger clothes when we got home from the weight we'd put on from eating so much.
The Executive Chef, Ali, was fantastic. His love & passion for food was intoxicating. An absolute delight, just like his food.
