We've never had a bad meal here. Be mindful which area you book to sit in as there is a rather steep set of stairs leading to the upper dining section. No BYO on weekends which is a downer.

Had a celebratory lunch here last week. Absolutely mouth watering. Cannot fault anything. Food was absolutely stunning. Service was very good and the cafe itself has a great ambiance. A little pricey for lunch, but nonetheless, so delicious. Can highly recommend.

Dined on a Tuesday Night and managed to get a table at 6pm. By 7:30pm the restaurant was nearly full. The food could not be faulted, the duck, beef, Salmon, and Scallops were all beautifully cooked and flavours were interesting. Next time we would bring...More
