Great range of quality food hat is expertly prepared and presented. Service was super efficient but not overbearing- just right. Really busy on Friday nights - indicating popularity. Pays to book on busy nights. Good range of beverages - crisp flavours to complement the food.

Again chose the dinner box - such good value and variety. Had the salmon as my main choice - fantastic. The food is fresh and tasty. The meals even look pretty - cute little serving dishes. Prices very reasonable and can recommend the dessert platters.
