Highly rated by friends our expectations for a top dining experience were high. In short the service was pleasant but we were pushed along and rushed through the service. The food was very mixed and our mains were on par with a pub meal except twice the price. The filet mignon was cooked well but very plain. The quail risotto... More

Amazing cute little restaurant! Really really yummy food! Can't wait to come back. I had the chicken which was very well cooked and my husband had the lamb shank which I couldn't stay away from his plate. It melts in the mouth and was perfect. For desert I had the chocolate mouse! 😍

Our meal was good, without being amazing. We'd heard good things and decided to dine here.

We booked an extended family lunch for Easter Sunday. What an experience- the outdoor tables are truly lovely. The food was delicious bistro food- generously portioned and saucy. Staff were accommodating. Don't be concerned about the strict booking policy- all worth the trip out there. Hoping to make this a regular on our trips to the Hunter

Due to unforseen changes in our plans we made a very last minute booking on the recommendation of one of my mothers friends. As we booked the table same day we couldn't get in until 14:30. On our arrival we were welcomed and taken to our table in the middle of the far section of the restaurant. The ambience was... More

My husband and I celebrated our 1st Wedding Anniversary here on the 22nd of April and it was outstanding. We have been here previously and it was just as amazing. The restaurant was at full capacity yesterday and the staff didn't miss a beat. Service was prompt and friendly and the delicious food came out soon after ordering. Aside from... More

Was great to catch up with old friends while enjoying the restaurants spectacular food and views. We took our time throughout the day and at no point did we feel rushed by managment or staff. My steak cooked in prosciutto was superb and my partners pork was also great
