Food and ambience

Location and contact

This ultra-popular restaurant (especially with locals who love a long lunch here) serves appetising Mediterranean meals in a relaxed, inviting space. It has a great outdoor courtyard, surrounded by wisteria, with tables shaded by large umbrellas and inside there’s a huge open fireplace in the centre of the room, surrounded by crisp, white-clothed tables and indoor gardens. Owner/chef Andy Wright offers a seasonal menu using the best Australian produce with regulars returning for popular á la carte dishes like pan-fried barramundi and eight-hour slow-braised Milly Hill lamb or the signature dish – whole suckling pig roast (48 hours’ notice required).

Dinner with friend. Had the steak, chips and mash; as well as garlic bread and dessert. The steak was one of the best I’ve ever had. We were more than satisfied. Service was also exceptional.

The location is great, the food ok, the service average but the air conditioning was woeful. For what you get it’s far too expensive.

We had a family birthday dinner, this is one of the restaurants that allows dogs. The staff were accommodating for the dog and bought water. The food was very good, they even have mosquito repellent. Totally recommend.
