I admit I had viewed this restaurant with some skeptism when I read the menu because it had a very large selection of what I would describe as fairly eccentric or unusual dishes. I would have expected these dishes to be regarded as specialties in most restaurants, but the menu appeared full to the brim of these and this seemed too ambitious for a small restaurant. Consequently my not so high expectation were completely blown away when I thought the food were actually excellent. I chose a dish that I thought was quite risky and very unusual (Pasta with kangaroo loins and chorizo) but I was wowed. There were numerous dishes that are very rare to come across in Australia so this restaurant, in my opinion, is a true-blue aussie restaurant and every international visitor should try dining here.
It was so good my family came back the second time and the large menu ensured we all were able to try something so different and still be impressed. I generally dislike going back to the same restaurant once a brilliant night is had because it is hard for the same level of expectation to be met, but this restaurant is one of the few where I would recommend going back for, especially to try a new dish. I would recommend going for dishes you'd never try elsewhere because they did impress.
The service was lovely and very welcoming (loved the personalised notes) and this restaurant is rated as excellent because the chef and owners have taken on a very ambitious menu and to pull it off with a family of 6 and pleasing every one of us was exceptional.
