Thirteen adults arrived for afternoon tea, coffees and cakes. The booking was for 2.00pm but probably took 29 minutes for everyone to arrive. Chilled water served while we waited for the seats to fill. Nice location on the verandah outside overlooking the beach and marina...More

Perfect summer day to enjoy a glass of Margaret River Sem Sav and a light lunch. We started with crispy duck Bao buns, normally three per serve but were offered four per serve so we could share. Nice touch wait staff. We then shared the...More
