Our forth visit and second review. I am greeted with a kind smile and was seated promptly even though almost every table was reserved. Water was served and with a little wave, I had ordered my appitiser. Beer fried chips with home made aoli. They...arrived in a white bowl filled to the brim of wonderfully cooked, crunchy fries. With another wave, our drinks, mains and dessert were ordered. There was a little imbalance between the sauce and fries. The aoli only lasted for a third of the fries. The rest was brown bagged for home. Only a short wait and our mains arrived. The carribean pizza, with a great balance of veg, cheese, nuts and various seafood types. Absolutely delicious. Topped with sweet chilli sauce, slices beautifully. Just a little lopped sided with a few slices with only a piece of seafood at its tip. Lastly I had the lemon & lime cheesecake unfortunately the lemon and lime was missing but the cheesecake was delicious anyway. This shows how good their chief is. We were confused why my knife and fork from my main never got taken off our table when cleared for dessert. And we asked for the leftover from both main meals to be packed to take home and only one came back. So overall it was a satisfying three course meal with only a few tweaks to be made to make it closer to perfect.More

Great, yet again. I can’t get over how the stuffed mushrooms are fresh ... not frozen fried balls. The person I ate with goes to eat here at least once a week.

Generally quiet on a Thursday night, which suits my mates and I. Regulars now for a while, and slowly working my way through the menu. Food is good. Sidney offers some attitude and banter.
