The beef duo is simply stunning and with a Jacobs Creek double barrel Shiraz the combination is a must. To finish the vanilla and rose tea pannacotta is delicious, the short bread a little dry and thick but enjoyable. The service was attentive and yet not over bearing. A must place to try

I had a pizza it was very bad it had things on it that wasn't on the menu. The waitresses didn't really look like they want to be there the people in the kitchen kept dropping plates and tins and just making a big racket. There are definitely better places in town.

We were drawn to this restaurant because the atmosphere looked so good: candle-lit; quirky but fresh interior; a lot of happy customers. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Service was attentive. We were slightly let down by the food- but the waitress took our complaint on board and was really lovely about it. A perk of the restaurant was... More

My husband and I found this venue by chance, its street appeal tempted us enough to go in and check out the menu, from there we decided it was worth trying. The staff were friendly and served us promptly. We could chose from a seat outside, in the main area or a booth seat - there were many tables however... More
