Group of 6, with 4 meals served well before final 2 so never actually ate together. My chicken breast was dry and they never served / added the vegetables ordered. Good company but disappointing food and timing. Staff themselves were very pleasant.More

Had a date with my wife without the kids and this place was recommended. Great recommendation! Had two entrees, two mains. Great value for money and packed full of flavour. During week days, some menu items are 1/2 price which makes it extra good value....More

Had the mushroom and truffle pasta for lunch and it was absolutely amazing. One of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had. With added chicken, $17.50. Fantastic price, would come back for this dish alone :)
