We were in a big group, yet they managed to get the orders correct, hot and together. The Penne Puttanesca was excellent. I will definitely return, probably for the tandoori pizza that was recommended to me.

Were staying at Bayview Eden and this restaurant is an easy 2 min walk away. The meals are a good size and very reasonable. The wine was also well priced. Staff were friendly. Would definitely go back to this restaurant when next in Melbourne
