I love eating here. Never had a bad dish yet Also worth having a lunch here as it is by the river and well shaded but the big moreton bay fig. Food and drink is priced well.

It would be the perfect spot. I would love to celebrate my Birthday there. I don't have the menu, but the prices are affordable. I was lunch time there and the view is amazing.
