Wonderful food, great setting and ambience. We had very helpful and caring service. One of our group of three had many allergies and these were catered for with care. Gentle music - not 'in your face'. Loved it - a great evening.

The staff at the Tower Lodge Motel pointed out this restaurant just a short walk away. It also close to a major park. The food and service were excellent.
