Left it until the last minute to book but a table on the veranda outside was available for a Saturday lunch. We were offered a choice of one in the sun or shade. It was a beautiful Autumn day so opted for the shade with...More

We have been to Amanda's on the Edge a couple of times but it's been a couple of years. The best way to summarise the experience is it is good honest food served by average wait staff. You're also very tightly packed into the restaurant....More
