Enjoyed our second lunch here this week and am impressed by the variety of dishes on offer. First time we all had the set menu, great value at $35 for 3 courses plus a glass of wine. London visitors blown away by the food, service...More

We've been here a few times now. Whenever we go to Hawks Nest we find the time to pop into Tillermans. Always for dinner and we've never been disappointed. The service is consistent and the food is really good. The menu is not too large,...More

I'm sure they have one at the restaurant. next time I'm down in Marine Dr, I'll try to get a copy. In winter, they're only open certain times- when they're not in France.
