On arriving the atmosphere seemed promising and we anticipated a really good experience however there is nothing more disappointing than a sand salad, slow service and tiny portion sizes. The butternut and sweet potato were also clearly steamed instead of roasted as described on the menu. We got the feeling that this place was lacking love and attention to detail.

Great and tasty food. Excellent service. Steaks done to perfection and a very enjoyable experience. It is an old converted house, expect nothing fancy but it is a worthwhile experience.

I enjoyed eating there, but quite honestly the food was pretty average and out of the group I was in, at least half on the people thought it was a little expensive for what we got. No complaints about the service though.

Charming atmosphere in this lovely old house - great verandah seating overlooking the busy and getting trendier Davenport Road in Glenwood. Never had a bad meal here yet - and it's been around for a while. lovely menu selection; service is attentive and food always looks that extra bit special because of good presentation. Recommended for special occasions

Very good food but very slow and chaotic service. Not satisfying overall. Pleasant atmosphere. Little interest in our protestations of dissatisfaction during and at the end of the evening.
