We had a birthday celebration at Redcliffs, the food was fantastic (especially the kids platter!) Great location, quaint setting and furnishings, we sat out the back undercover. The Lamb shanks were delicious, the presentation of all meals was fantastic.

We went in the winter and arrived around 8pm. We were definitely the last table to be seated that night, but the hostess greeted us graciously and sat us.

It's good but not a woooo good. $35-$40 for main course. I ordered the smoked lamb while the others in my family both ordered the lamb shank. No disappointment.

This cosy place is almost a guarantee of cook cooking and a dining experience to treasure. Went with guests from overseas and we all had delicious meals, including perfect venison. Most memorable was the Wild Goat Ragu. Just oozing with flavor!
