I can't begin to express our gratitude to the chef/owner about our wonderful experience tonight for dinner. He is truly an artist - is say Michelin level with their unique yet delicious dishes. My 2 friends and I made a dinner reservation tonight and when we showed up there were no other customers there - they stayed open just for... More

Our daughter found and booked this delight. Where to start....location is incredible. The restaurant and table setting is a feast in itself. Service was what one always expects but so seldom gets - so professional and yet warm and friendly. The chef was out with each serving. Fine ingredients with each plate somewhat changed up from expectations. It was like... More

We were a bit disappointed as the main waiter was not friendly and although the food was decorative it wasn't particularly good. I had the trout and it was not good

The best part about this meal were the free gin and tonic drinks with a dash of rosemary to start off with. I'm not a G&T person but these were delicious. After that the evening for our party kept getting farther from our expectations. I had the duck salad to start with and it was good. My husband had the... More

You can tell that the food is prepared with a lot of labour and love, and it shows - the flavours in the food are subtle and everything is cooked to perfection. This is easily the second best meal of my entire life!! They have a very interesting and unique menu and we absolutely wanted to try everything on it.... More

Had an excellent dinner here last night. Booked table for 7.30, watched the sunset go down and was a fabulous evening. The restaurant is not easily accessible and a car is a must and is on the top of a steep hill with a dirt track leading up to it. The restaurant is above a bustling pizzeria but adds to... More

We really enjoyed our evening here - if we are honest the hospitality, personnel and food were on a par. Wonderful to meet the chef to explain the ingredients and the meal and to meet the team afterwards. The service and those above ingredients mean you could have served the most basic of food but the presentation, ingredients and finesse... More

Beautiful view, great service, totally amazing and wonderful meal. We had the Lasagne (Amazing), COD fillet (light and delicious), Burrata appetizer (fresh!), Truffle pasta (decadent) & delicious wines. An evening to remember.

Thank Shaulie
