Absolutely first class! The cuisine is not only interesting and tasty, but some of the dishes are unique. This is our pick for really sensational food with a solid wine list, which doesn't break the bank. The service is great and personal.

The staff, chef and wine are the perfect 3 peat. Forget Hawthorn and premierships the Wild Duck restaurant in Kingston is great. Friendly informative staff, exquisite meals and wine to die for.
