Dinner at this Restaurant was dictated by where we were staying. It is pleasant, clean, spacious and "flash". The food was mostly good.

Had a nice dinner with 2 colleagues. Pork ribs were very nice and the steak rated well too. A well frequented place, seems to be one of the go to joints in town for a fine dining experience. Good wine list. Good wait staff.

I have visited Emerald many times for work and believe this is probably the best in Emerald. It has a good menu but a limited wine selection. Prices are quite reasonable service is friendly and the setting comfortable. Would visit again.

This was recommended to us as the best restaurant in Emerald and the food did not disappoint. Enormous oysters three ways followed by lamb rack and pork ribs. All amazing. The atmosphere is modern and relaxed. Great value too. The only downside was that we...More
