Beautiful Coffin Bay Oysters followed by the fish du jour, fresh coral trout with perfectly balanced accompaniments was a true delight - and all in a lovely setting. Well worth the visit.

Had dinner with friend. The service was excellent and the décor is good!! The menu is a fusion of contemporary Australian and French influence. Scallops for entrée were beautiful and plump!! Mains were excellent and a nice finish with Crème brulee and dessert wine!!

We had the degustation. 7 courses for $95 and it was nice. The standout was the trio of pork and coconut sorbet. The duck was very fatty and I couldn't eat it al. Overall a nice meal for something different.
