A catch up with friends. We sat upstairs at a table for six. Other tables upstairs were full also.
My wife and I shared a bottle of Trinity Hills Chardonnay.
We shared an entrée of Ora King Salmon, my wife had the Angus beef fillet main and I had the Quail
Could not be faulted.
Service was friendly, available, but not intrusive.
An excellent evening.

Thank Neil C

$10 for eggs and bacon on toast, great value. Lovely service and coffee, and a fresh atmosphere. Will definitely go again.

Popped into Fords for an amazing meal with friends. Excellent service along with a great menu and drinks selection. We enjoyed all courses but made room for desert! Well recommended for a fine dining experience.

Warmly welcomed as soon as we arrived, with coffees arriving soon after.
Big Breakfast was good value - only disappointing aspect was that the eggs were cooked 'over easy'. However the guest wasn't asked when ordering whether they wanted this, or 'sunny side up'.
Mince on Toast was tasty and something different as a breakfast option.
Coffees were mediocre - the blend was quite bitter.
Not a lot of parking in Trafalgar Street so suggest parking in one of the side streets and walking.

My husband and I came for a meal. And absolutely loved it. The service was fantastic. Friendly and welcoming. The meal was beautiful. We haven't stopped talking about it. And we are telling everyone how great it was. Thank you so much for making our evening so enjoyable.
