A list-minute decision to eat out was a huge success when we chose Illume to celebrate our anniversary. Even though we made no mention of the fact, we were treated as though we had! Seated at a cosy table with rolling fields and distant ocean...More

We attended with a large group for a work function. Between us I think we sampled the entire menu. Everyone was very pleased with their meals. High quality fresh local produce in a beautiful setting.

Don't call your customers 'Guys'. Apart from that the service was Ok. The menu was seriously limited. I had the lamb which was well cooked, however the sauce was very 'commercial'. Others in my group had the pork which was quite good except the crackle...More
