Ordered the Chicken with pineapple. All chicken, sprinkle of greenery and sadly only one piece of pineapple in the whole dish. Not the worst dinning experience we had but not worth us visiting againMore

It would pay to book a table for this popular restaurant. We didn't, but managed to get the last table. Rustic style surroundings. Eating outside on a warm night was lovely. The food was delicious and service was very efficient. Only sorry we went there...More

Great range of all sorts of foods - not especially kid-menu friendly though. Our son had to have a range of appetizers - not all of which were to his liking!

Thank you Lucylou for your lovely feedback on your experience with us over two nights. Service staff are always happy to hear that they have made a great impression, and we can all relate to the scrumptious desserts.

We had a group of 12 people there and everyone just loved their meals, cocktails including entree. The service was perfect and with 2 drinks each cost around $50 per head. Really happy and would definitely go again.
