Recently had lunch here with a work colleague and we very surprised. Great food, light and well presented, great atmosphere outside next to the lawns and generally relaxing. Felt quite refreshed when I went back to work. A bit of an oasis in the city.

A local we met at a market recommended this cafe. Would highly recommend. Located within the impressive Parliament buildings. Cafe offered great fare & excellent service, and as we were sitting outside, enjoyed great sea views. It was very pleasant.

This cafe is inside Parliament House, and as such, is frequented by people who work in the building and tourists who visit. However, it is such a nice little place and such good quality that I think it's worth other people seeking it out. The...More
