Gorgeous decor, nice outlook and vibe. Food was really good especially the Ocean Trout and Whole Snapper.

Need some more options for sides on the menu.

Recommend asking to sit towards the back of restaurant with water view

Thank Mark D

Travelled out to this great location for a relaxing lunch. Great food, lovely setting. Really attentive staff and management. Wait person new the menu well and was happy to assist with food and drink choices. Restaurant was not at all busy on the day so service and food was excellent. All of us said we would love to revisit on day when the weather was a little more on the pleasant side not cold and windy.

Thank David W

I had a delicious lunch here a few weeks back with my mum and a friend. Beautiful setting in a quiet and peaceful location. The menu has a good range of choices and all reasonably priced. Service was fantastic and very attentive and helpful. The decor and place settings are creative and well thought out. I saw families, couples and singles all dining here so it was a great place for all. Ill def be back

A very nice dinner at this family run, cosy restaurant. The entrees and mains we sampled were asian infused with a bit of kick. The soft-shell crab was the best, worth the price of admission! Dessert was also excellent, accompanied by great service. A couple of glasses of red combined to make this the perfect location to escape the cold Hunter winter evening. A little on the pricey side, but worth treating yourself to this one!

I can't speak highly enough about this restaurant! The pineapple salad is a must try & the white chocolate panacotta was to die for. It is a little more on the exy side but realistically, you get what you pay for. The service was excellent & they made a fuss of my mother in law as it was her 70th birthday so they brought her out a free desert with a candle. There were 7 of us dining & we were all very impressed, this restaurant is a definite must try when your in The Hunter or lucky enough to live close by
