This place is highly understated. The food was absolutely exquisite and you can sit out on the verandah with the lake in sight and enjoy a gin and tonic with your beautiful tasty meal, while a bunch of mates hang around the bar and shoot pool. Very relaxed, very casual but delicious and high high quality.

The meals were very good and well proportioned... so good,... More

Very friendly staff we were shown to our seat with a smile from the waitress. The lamb shanks were one of the best.

Another one on our trip where we went twice on successive nights. Service was spot on really friendly, the building itself was clean with outside garden area overlooking great views. The food was wonderful very good menu choice and specials change daily.

No need to reserve a table, although it is recommended, for a decent meal any time of the day. Plenty of free car parking and open areas for kids to play.

Initial thoughts were that prices were top heavy for breakfast and this was backed up when they arrived. 3 of us with simple hot drinks and something light to eat was $60. A dry piece of unevenly cut bread with 2 eggs is not worth $11.Combined with a waitress that must have been very new to the job and had... More
