A fantastic spot for lunch. Food was 10/10, service was also lovely. Beautiful spot and venue was equally as lovely. We went with our 3 month old and I was able to breastfeed in confidence and they also had changing table facilities which was very...appreciated. We can’t wait to go back!More

My wife and I had a wonderful Lunch. I am happy to give a 5-star recommendation for a wonderful dining experience. Nice ambience and clean restaurant. We had Lemon & Thyme Chicken, Cauliflower fritters, Makikihi Chunky fries and smoothies and trust me everything was awesome....Flavours are wonderfully put together, superbly cooked and presented beautifully. Cannot find better quality of service. Every staff member is interested in one thing “their customers”. This is rare in my experience. They definitely lived up to the hype, and their continuous high rankings and reviews. If you haven’t been to eat here, you’re missing out on the best experience! Highly recommend😊More

The staff were very welcoming and helpful. They are all dog lovers and there is an area for dogs to be tied up or left to roam. It was a cold day and a welcome heater was provided as the sun went behind the hill....The food was excellent and provided quickly. The burger and steak sandwich were filling and tasty as was the children's menu fish and chips. We had a very pleasant lunch and the staff were happy to chat. Would definitely return.More

Always busy, but staff are super responsive. Fresh food, good wine, affordable and everybody plus their dog eats there. What else to say?

Stopped for a coffee and scone - the place is light and bright and the staff and service was great. It was popular and busy - we didn't eat off the menu but the food certainly looked good

Gorgeous location and great food. Nice mix of indoor and outdoor seating. Toilets are a highlight and the service was wonderful too. We had to go back because we loved it so much. Great place to stop after you’ve done the Chinese settlement.
