This is a very cosy restaurant at the end of the High Street. the menu is small but caters for all tastes, whatever you have you will not be disappointed as the food was excellent as was the wine- all local and reasonably priced. The service was the best that we have experienced in WA. If you're visiting Margaret River... More

The food here is deliciously fresh and perfectly presented. It's a little expensive but they are using local ingredients. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful and it's a lovely setting to enjoy such great food.

It was a great delight to find fried Camembert on the menu. It really took me down memory lane. The place is still very eclectic but food and service was so good.

I can't complain about the food or the service it was spot on. However to charge $12 corkage for the privilege of taking our own wine that we had purchased earlier in the day at a local winery I feel was a bit steep. But like I said the food was delicious and the service was very good.

We wanted somewhere nice to go out for dinner and we could not have chosen a better spot. The restaurant is hidden away at one end of the main street and you could easily not realise that it is there. It was much quieter than many of the other restaurants in the town. The restaurant has an interesting history which... More

Thank you for your lovely review review. We do not wish to be known as inexpensive. If it cost less we could not do it as well and what you have stated is exactly what we hope to achieve not inexpensive but, worth it. Thank you for appreciating that. More

Quirky little restaurant with excellent food and warm & friendly service. It would be easy to walk past the unassuming frontage, with its hotchpotch decor & not realise what a gem this place is. The duck was amazing and my husband was equally impressed with his garlic prawns & 700g rib eye steak. We had the Cassata & Eton Mess... More
