We split the Bush Tucker Sampler with kangaroo, emu, crocodile, beef, prawns and barramundi. We both felt the barramundi was the best. The meal was good, we sat outside on the water, and the waiter was handling all tables outside and was not attentive. We...More

Wide variety of food choices, good for overseas visitors to try something different (eg emu sausage, crocodile, kangaroo), consistent service, wine menu is quite expensive knowing what they would cost in a retail outlet, they would get them even cheaper wholesale. Great desserts
