This is a fantastic hidden gem in Healesville; beautiful produce prepared deliciously in a gorgeous laneway (go for the tacos!) - what more do you want?! Stop by for a meal and make sure to also visit the cellar door and distillery.

Very friendly staff and great out door area for when the weather is friendly. The food was good and a reasonable price. I would like to come back for a Japanese dinner.
