Impressed that there is only one person in kitchen. Our meals come out fast. Excellent taster plate with wonderful sweet potato and goats cheese arancini. Baramandi was wonderful, very well priced.

Not a fancy decor restaurant and that isn’t a problem for us, the food is excellent and the wine selection is great. The service was responsive and friendly and we had a enjoyable night out to close out a week on holiday in Coffs :-)

We celebrated my birthday here and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious. Great flavours well balanced and some good wine to go with it. I’d recommend the twice cooked duck, lovely. The service was good and friendly. We will be back.
