Great atmosphere and a couple of cracking dishes that the locals always go back for, being the pork belly and duck. Just brilliant! Prices are reasonable for the quality of the food, wine list is extensive and suits the various dishes. We were served by Amber who impressed us with her friendliness, knowledge of the food, location and the wines.

You are correct, the Pork and Duck, both free range, are our most popular dishes. Thank you for mentioning Amber, staff always appreciate being acknowledged for doing a good job. More

Great restaurant at the top of the hill on the main thoroughfare. Good local wines and all kinds of foods with a specials board as well. I would recommend it.

Wow a packed night & staff under pressure but did not phase them. Complimentary champagne on arrival, decorations & smiling greetings from staff. Garlic prawns yum but venison carpaccio awesome & worth trying. Beef main cooked perfect & venison loin tasty & again cooked perfect. No room for desert... a must visit gastronomic experience when in Margaret River. 👍

The man had a full steak dinner and enjoyed it. The two ladies had appetizer sizes and then shared a salad. That was more than enough food for us. Hubby enjoyed his house wine but the waitress was not very helpful in describing it. He took a chance and ordered it and was relieved it was good. It was busy... More

Thank you for your review, I will use your comments about the waitress and the wine as a training opportunity as it is very basic and they should all know about the house wine and most will have a good knowledge of our wine list in general. No, we are not cheap but, as we promote our restaurant with a... More

This place requires a makeover; looked scruffy & in need of a good clean; toilets weren't working; staff cheerful but service hit & miss. All dishes seemed heavy handed & duck tasted tough & old. Didn't impress my overseas realatives. Will not be going back..go elsewhere this joint is just not good enough!
