We had read about this restaurant in Christine Mansfield book. It was a beautiful experience with top food and the whole experience special. A lot more than we had paid for other food on our trip but well worth it.

We had booked for lunch for our grandchildren for our family. They made the event very special by not only offering a cake but also specific dishes which were not in the menu. Overall the food spread was awesome and vast
