Order the aussie game: combo of kangoroo and crocodile meat with smashed patatoes and beans. The meat was very soft and cooked well. The service was efficient and friendly. The cost was proportional to the food quality served. Good selection of local wines.

I had kangaroo skewers and a seafood platter. I wanted to have a taste of Australia and “raw prawn” did not disappoint me! It was delicious!

Just like what they recommended, the salt and pepper calamari was so different from any other restaurants, not that rubbery at all!! And food was gorgeous, had clam pasta and sword fish, was great flavour The raw oyster with salmon is amazing too
