We had a wonderful lunch here, we asked for a waterside table and we had a lovely view. The service was lovely and seafood platter was delicious. They also had a great range of cocktails. Sorry to hear they're moving!

Had lunch here with my wife and noticed that the diners were mostly couples. The menu selection was very good and the food were really outstanding. Surprisingly, the price was lower than what the food and service deserved. We enjoyed our experience!

Was closing from current location the end of Oct and moving to next to the Courthouse hotel in wharf street (where an Italian restaurant used to be). Most staff were moving over so should still be just as sensational!!
