We ate here on our first night in Labrador. A short walk from our accomodation. The food was very good. We all enjoyed our meals. Cajun snapper, fried scallops, seafood chowder and bay bug pappardelle. Desserts were also really good. Service was fast and friendly.

This restaurant stayed open for us after everyone else had gone and they were more than patient with our desire to eat and stay late. The food was great and service , location and surroundings met all our expectations.

Accomodating friendly staff, restaurant clean, uncrowded, and well presented. Food presentation excellent. Had seafood platter, cold seafood delicious and well presented. Calamari and sea scallops bit over cooked. Delicious, will return.

The absolute best Bugtail Pappardelle in southeast Queensland!! I'm in love and so well priced. Staff were so friendly and knowledgeable about their food and wine. Service was second to none. Do your tastebuds a favour and give them flavour!! A big thankyou from Athena
