The food exceeded expectation. Sitting on the patio was a treat. The atmosphere was relaxed and private. The duck is delicious as is their homemade lemoncello. Great time was had!

An absolute MUST when visiting the area. We enjoyed excellent fish and pasta, with outstanding house wine, on the back verandah. we were not rushed (we allowed 2 hours, and should have allowed closer to 3) for our dinner. The owner/chef are a husband/wife team...More
