Food was quality and very well prepared. Wonderful friendly service and a thoroughly great night. Fillet steak cooked to perfection and melt in your mouth. Get the duck fat potatoes!

Birthday dinner with my wife. From the reception to leaving we could not have asked for more. Service was superlative and the food sublime. Try the curried prawn entree. A very light sweet curry and a perfect compliment to the prawns.

Everything about this place is right. The setting, the staff and service, the quality of the food and the price. We are food snobs but can honestly say, we have never been more impressed. We are so glad to have found this restaurant and will be going back there again in 2 days

A very pleasant meal, which we ate in the conservatory. Weather was quite cool, so the wool shawls which they provide were much appreciated.
I started with the coconut curry prawns: juicy prawns ( yum!) and curry was quite mild. A nice dish.
Mains: I had the lamb, which I felt could have benefited from addition of a jus or similar, but was nonetheless quite tasty. My husband had the fish, which apparently was excellent. And the duck fat potatoes were superb!
We shared the dessert platter, which was slightly disappointing. Some of the samples were great, but others were sadly tasteless. So choose your desserts carefully!
It's a lovely restaurant, with lovely people . A good choice.

We happened upon this place on a walk through the area. It's near the Airbnb we're staying in and we discussed the merits of booking. It's in a very residential area and is in fact in a renovated house
Well, we checked a few reviews...and booked. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! We opted for the 3 course meal at $60 per person. Fantastic presentation and our taste buds just danced!
Highly recommend you try out this little treasure!!!!
