The food was just beautiful. We had fresh local fish which couldn't have been any fresher, it was cooked superbly and the accompaniments were just right. Deserts were rich but delicious. They have a great selection of excellent wines. A definite winner.

We were served a risotto which bore no ressemblance to a regular risotto. It consisted of rice and vegetables in plenty of broth. Not at all the consistency and the taste expected. The chef said noone had ever complained before and the waitress was pretty...More

Fantastic service. Attentive without being intrusive. Local Calamari was scrumptious. Everyone loved their mains, steaks, local flathead and other fish. But everyone passed on the desserts. Highly recommended for a business dinner!

Nice dinning room, pleasant service and good food. My wife had the calamari which arrived completely different to any I had seen before - supported by Asian slaw. My wife thought it was the best shed had ever had

Not as good as it used to be. Although a busy night and we booked there was some confusion and we moved tables twice. Not enough wine by the glass and service was a bit patchy. Food was good and would return for that alone.More
