Awesome atmosphere - funky decor with infectiously happy dancing chef in the open kitchen area. Excellent goat cheese ravioli dish. Really enjoyed the sparking maracuya (passion fruit) drink. Other dishes good but not great like the ravioli.

Happened upon this restaurant. Service was extremely friendly & all our meals were delicious, with organic, locally sourced produce. Served with vegetables or salad. Local wine was excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Nice causal, quaint cafe with nicely appointed interior - very high ceilings give airy atmosphere. Service was good - offered complimentary flavoured chilled wine. Menu written out on chalk boards and while not extensive did offer nice selection. Food was well-prepared and presented. Reasonably priced...More

The food was ok, but also nothing exceptional and the choices were very limited. The place was unusual and nice, but the service was very unproffessional. Our waitress could not answer a single question we had concerning the menu items, for everything she had to...More
