Food was nice, serving sizes small, service good but pretentious. We were seated next to a large noisy crowd, which I thought was out of place for this restaurant.

Food amazing always. Service is great, small portions but fine dinning every time. I've been there dozens of times and never had a bad meal. My choice of restaurants in town.

I have been here numerous times before for drinks but had never tried the paella night. It just didn't live up to expectations and was extremely dry and bland unfortunately. I wouldn't be back for the paella but the service is lovely and selection of drinks is widespread.

Great food that most cooks will struggle to replicate matched with an excellent range of top quality wine. Very friendly hosts and staff. If you wish to create a great impression you can't beat this in Mackay.
