Portions were a joke. And even if they’d been a table spoon bigger (ie double in size) the price was beyond greed. To the owner...make hay whilst it lasts as I doubt you’ll be around this time next year.

We made a last minute decision to book (5.15pm) a meal and due to its popularity we took the 5.30pm booking. Great decision - beautifully cooked, inventive and creative - we loved it

We were recommended here, staff friendly but meals very small and expensive. Our group were hungry on leaving!

They have many options to mix and match from the menu and a constantly changing menu to match seasonal produce. For lunch with drinks I think we paid less than $30 per head, dinner a little more but honestly the food and... More
