Not over-the-top deluxe, or a wood-fired oven place, but very satisfying if you are staying in the neighborhood, tired after the day, and find Canberra a bit unwalkable (which it is). Good pizza and pasta dishes, with salad. Recommended.

We were staying in the adjoining hotel, so popped in for breakfast on our first morning.We both had the bacon and eggs. Unfortunately, the hot food was served on cold plates, and the eggs were slightly undercooked. There were better breakfast places nearby.

We arrived at the restaurant at 8:30PM, and they closed at 9:00Pm. We were made very welcome and they were happy to serve 3 people very close to closing time. The ribs were excellent and could not fault the service.
