Great food and great service and very reasonable prices. We had a fantastic evening and I can honestly say that nothing could have been improved on, including the chef coming out & chatting to everyone at the end of the evening Booking highly recommended and I can see why!

After all the talk-up I was very disappointed. Before we even sat down I felt as if staff would rather have been somewhere else - friendly enough but not particulary focused, uniformed but a bit scruffy, several could have done with changing their apron. Bad accoustics created a noisy atmosphere. Our table still had salt and pepper spread on it... More

Really good menu and the food was delicious. We chatted to the chef that pointed us towards Mazunga for the following night as we couldn't get in here for the next night. Good second choice.

Best duck confit I've ever had! Dale's a great guy and wonderful chef. The garlic prawns and the mussels are also excellent.

What a great restaurant! The food is excellent here! The stone grill is delicious! The meat is amazing. As dessert you should definitely try the chocolate fondue. We went already two times and are planning to go back tonight! Also really nice that the cook of the restaurant comes by to say hello.

Their signature shoulder of lamb dish is very good, love the mint jelly that went with it. Portion is for a very hungry person or can also be shared. Service is also pretty good and ambience of restaurant is nice. Definitely worth a visit, also would advise booking especially in peak season a few were turned away whilst we were... More

We made a reservation in advance of our trip which seemed necessary as every table was always taken. This is not a large place and its pretty popular. Plenty of wine and beer options for drinks and the food was quite good. Would definitely recommend getting a sense of the scale of the dishes from your server before ordering. As... More
