For a professional and foodie experience this is the place.That covers everything and part of me wants this review to stop her. But I also want to tell you about other things. The waiters know their stuff and suggest good wine and food which will suit u and they have an uncanny ability to understand the guests and what they need, to the point of what mood they are in, which can only come from very long hospitality experience and ability to read customers. They know what you need before you do. Chefs are outstanding. Not cheap, but fair value for the quality. I will return. Many times. Yum.

Fabulous ambience. Art Deco tasteful charm. Carpeted which is lovely. Comfy chairs. Very clean. Lots of parking available at the coles carpark opposite.
Lovely Sunday night dinner with friends. The place was so busy. The staff are lovely and knowledgeable and the menu is excellent. We had the steak and the barramundi and they were delicious.

We went there for dinner as part of a group of 8 for a xmas dinner for work and it was terrific. Food and atmosphere was great and although it was a little noisy at first it settled down and we were all able to relax and talk without shouting - good restaurant

A gorgeous evening was enjoyed by my large, immediate, family, in the upstair function space, consisting of one mother, 5 siblings with partners and 4 teenagers. From the first hello to our warm farewell everything was perfect! Lochy was our primary carer, attending to everything from bar, to serving, finding a pen, to organising my sensational Bom Alaska Birthday dessert with sparklers to be presented by my nephew. The space is warm, intimate, beautifully decorated and inviting. The food more than impressed my fussy foodie family and the service was seemless, intuitive and discreet. Everyone loved and enjoyed everything about this venue. A big thank you especially to Locky for his patience, professionalism, sincere warmth and care, creating a fabulous evening and precious memories.
