Just finished our dinner of spaghetti marinara and king prawn and chorizo risotto. Both were fantastic and we had great beer and wines. Would definitely recommend.

One of our top 10 meals of all time! Stephen was great and we really enjoyed the evening. The view outside at the Ness River was beautiful. Make sure to make a recommendation.
