Delicious food and wine, gorgeous views over the harbour, and a playground right outside, which you can see from the outdoor tables! Perfect spot for families. Great kids menu too. We went both nights. Best place to see the sunset over the harbour too!

Kids are regulars at the waterfront playground and so Ma Maison is our go to for drinks, coffees and the occasional meal. Service is always friendly, food always delicious and the view is beautiful of the jetty and lighthouse. Would recommend.
