Quite nice. Parking is a bit of a nightmare though.

“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

This is a lovely little place, very cosy and accommodating. We brought our kids and they were well received. Food was very nice. Probably the best dining experience we have had in this area

“Quirky with excellent food”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

This converted old house in a sandhill gully is easy to drive past. If you miss it, turn around and go back!. It is hard to get a booking so make a reservation early. Food is first class and an extensive wine list, and be prepared for a short wait during their hectic summer season. A bit pricey but worth it.

“Second time here”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

The food was very nice as was our waiter but we didn't enjoy the atmosphere as much this time. We were at a table for 4 in a thoroughfare space and it made the evening feel less special. Our entree came out immediately which was a little too soon given we were enjoying a cocktail. The spaghetti marinara is fantastic!

“Great food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Here is a great restaurant to have that special dinner with a loved one or a group of friends. Ambiance is nice, and service is good. The menu is interesting and the cooking excellent. The wine list is extensive. All in all it makes for a perfect evening out. Reservations are a must during the high season. The only issue is that the courses are always slow in coming (we have dined here before) and one does get the impression that it is deliberate so you consume more wine. Even dishes that do not take very long to prepare take ages, and the waitress will continue to ask you if you want to order wine by the glass once your bottle is finished. If it wasn't for this, I would rate the restaurant as excellent.
