Wonderful dinner in an almost unlikely place. The food was wonderful. The slow cooked lamb was beautiful. $21 bottle of reasonable wine in the restaurant, who can complain about that? There were other more upmarket choices on the wine list. The lavender crème brûlée was wonderful as well. I would not recommend the chocolate soufflé. The service was okay, perhaps good if you think of a small town restaurant on a busy Saturday night.

We had breakfast with friends here, got a nice table outside in the little courtyard. Very lucky as we had our dog with us. Very tasty breakfast, the pancakes were delicious. Great and friendly service. Certainly would recommend

Just casual but food bought back some memories of how good tasty food should be. Has a strong but but not immediately obvious French influence in style and food.
Desert panna cotta came with mango and passionfruit instead of the advertised rhubarb which was only dissappointment.
On Marine parade near ferry and overlooking water.

This is the top restaurant in Hawks Nest/Tea Gardens. The owners travel to Europe and ring back ideas for their restaurant. The meat and fish on offer are always excellent. We also drop in for scones and coffee occasionally.

We had a morning tea stop here and wished we were able to stay on to enjoy the three-course lunch with wine that was on offer! The atmosphere at this cafe/restaurant is lovely - get a table outside under the arbor for that real French Provincial feel - and the coffee was fantastic. The scones were big, crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside, served with beautiful raspberry jam and cream.
The menu offered delightful French style cuisine and would have made for a very enjoyable long, lazy lunch if we had been able to stay longer.
