We came here for late night port and dessert 2 nights in a row. Best desserts we've ever had. We loved the ambience of the outdoor seating area. We just need to go back for dinner!

We had a meal outside here on the patio and enjoyed the evening Our food and service were excellent. Our server was very friendly, and really won over our teen age daughter - which is hard to do! Highly recommend.

Wonderful service and setting. We had the stuffed squid, nettle pasta and scallops, along with a salad. The dishes were creative and well prepared. The passion fruit tart was a bit over engineered and dry but overall the meal was very pleasant.

Everything was great except they sat us near a busy doorway. We had the tasting menu which included 6 excellent courses and we had a really good bottle of red wine that was not overpriced. Our server, Pam, was great. We will be back!

Hi Amanda, sorry for the late reply. It depends on the kids. It's a nice restaurant, but it didn't feel stuffy. There is a lovely outdoor patio that accommodates groups nicely. The food was not overly complicated, so if... More
