I was keen to try this restaurant as it has rave reviews. For the period we were in Maroochydore, Sunday lunch was our only opportunity, so we booked. We arrived 15 minutes before our booking and were obliged to wait outside because it was so...busy. The view was lovely but an outdoor bench would have been appreciated. Owners/staff were friendly and apologetic about being overstretched and slower than usual. Food was OK, not rave material, and prices, especially for wine by the glass, at the top end of the restaurant pricing. There was a (discovered) error in the number of glasses charged to the bill. I must say that the crowded room of diners all seemed to be having a fantastic time, with much cameraderie with the owners, so i think we were just unlucky in our menu choices and in choosing a day when the kitchen was over-stretched, as we were told on a couple of occasions.More

We had the best time. From the minute we arrived until the minute we left. Paul and Michael welcomed us all and we had the best tables in the house. 24 friends and family all together in one of the most spectacular restaurants in the...sunny Coast. Our food was delicious and and my compliments to the chef. Can I just add... The beef cheeks just melted in the mouth. Everything was spot on. I certainly can't wait to come back.
