Drove through on a wet Sunday and decided to have lunch. What a find of a restaurant. Ambiance and service is superb and the food was top shelf. Excellent wine list. Worth a drive from Akl just for a brilliant lunch experience

Unique and delicious menu and great service. The regular menu has really unusual but delicious dishes, and the kids menu is accessible without being the standard chicken nuggets/hot dog fare. Very attentive and friendly staff.

Disappointed with the stern attitude of the waitress, who firmly stated ‘there would be a $30 house fee for bringing a birthday cake! First time I have dinner out in Cambridge to be asked for such an absorbent amount! I enjoyed my duck & broth...More

Very pleasant updated villa style interior, and was very open throughout - no private areas I could see for a quiet bite with company. Food very nice, but not my style (bit fancy looking for me). Nearly chose the sirloin, glad I didn't. Was finely...More
