I love this place!! Food is excellent, and the views unrivalled. Ask for a seat with views, or sit outside in summer. Situated on the top of Mt Nelson, next to the old Signal Station.

Recently had lunch at the Signal Station with 4 in our party. Table on the balcony had an exceptional view over the harbour and river. We shared food and all was of a high standard. Staff very friendly.
