The dips were good but the seafood starter was a letdown. Hands down the worst calamari we have ever had in any restaurant. So chewy and hard I had to spit it out and the... More

Service is good, but it was very busy and this impacted on times for everyone, we hadn't booked and were left outside on the promise of a table for sometime. Was delivered the wrong drink... More

If you want the best food overtime this is the place. The food is out of this world good. If I could give it more than 5 I would. Great atmosphere and the staff are professional and friendly. I wish I had asked the young brunette waitress tonight her name as she was absolutely first class with our entire group.... More

Anne-Marie and her crew do a job that is nothing short of outstanding. Went for our wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so we went back for our anniversary the next year. Only downsides are chairs could be more comfortable and dining room reverberates so much noise. But the food is heavenly. Love, love, love it.

The food, oh, the food. Mine was the special - a salad with terakihi. But, oh my, the tiny potatoes were perfect, mandarin sections, just the right amount of aioli, little bits of young lettuce, just perfect. And the service and prices were just fine. But book ahead!
