Probably the worst atmosphere I have ever encountered. Very clinical feel. Almost porcelain like. Staff were very pretentious and wth only 3 tables being used in the whole place it still took over 15 minutes to get the attention of the staff to order a drink.
Nothing about this place felt warm or inviting. There was a constant hammering sound coming from the kitchen area and when I mentioned it to a staff member our party of 5 were certainly made to feel unwelcome. Would never recommend this experience to anyone.

Food is made with love. Flavours are divine. Just wish the moussaka was available as a smaller option. Service is good. Cocktails done well.

Would love to give 5 star but the fact the restraint let us book in for Tuesday night when they are closed and we showed up to a closed restaurant needs to be fixed on their online booking, apart from that everything was beautiful would recommend

We absolutely loved the food here but the service was not very attentive. We were seated and offered water but it took a long time to come, same with someone to take our drink/food order and no one explained the menu or anything like that. Food arrived in good time though. No one came to refill water. We were offered a dessert menu and clean plates between entree and mains which was good. Overall would come again particularly for the food!

Great food and service in a relaxed environment. I had read other reviews suggesting the meals were small. We were a group of 6 and our waitress helped us to select a combination of dishes that were both delicious and suited our appetite. Could not have asked for a more enjoyable dining experience.

The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, great customer service. Food and menu selection were terrific. We shared small and large plates but unfortunately in the time allowed for each booking, didn’t have time for dessert. Next time would plan differently as the chocolate almond cake just out of the oven as we walked in looked very yummy.

Unfortunately, we arrived on time for our booking and were told 'we were just setting up' so went for a walk around the block. When we came back service was great however, my partner asked for a beer and it was unavailable, I asked for a cocktail which was unavailable.. my second choice cocktail was also unavailable. They started to try and fix the beer keg while we were there so it created a bit of noise. We're pretty easy going so just had a snack and decided to leave and have mains elsewhere!

Our experience was simply exceptional! We arrived early and were greeted with a genuine warmth in a gorgeous ambiance of Jay Vasicek's artwork. Mediterranean inspired food. Felt like you were in Greece despite it pouring with rain outside. The food is delicious - every bit of it! Designed to share so we went to town enjoying their signature dish - Moreton Bay Bug rolls, spinach & fetta pie -yellow fin tuna carpaccio - beef tagine and saffron poached pears! I can not wait to get back & dine there again!
This is a MUST!

Took advantage of being down in Burleigh to try out somewhere new, and we are glad we did. The food was fresh and coastal with a home made feel, nice wine and great cocktails. Well worth a try, highly recommended!

This is a great place to go with a group! We shared a bunch of the dips, bread, prosciutto, and the burrata to start which were all delicious! For mains my friends and I shared the spinach and feta filo pie and the moussaka which were amazing!! Can also recommend their coconut chilli margaritas which they had made for us on request! Staff were so lovely and looked after us very well! We will be back 😊

Staff were amazing. Wine was good, and chilled proerly.

Wasn't happy at all about the cold food and the salad that came with the filo was so slack. Was a handful of rocket with a drizzle of dressing. The leaves themselves tasted like they were left open in the fridge too.

Not a good experience at all.

Went on a Monday and they had forgotten to take the 10% off the billing system so had overcharged us by $70. We were a later sitting as well so this would have been going on all evening to lots of patrons. The staff was not at all apologetic once we pointed it out and made us feel like we were being an inconvenience. Good service would have meant apologising for this major stuff up and offering to wipe the desserts off the menu.

Hi Lizzie, We apologies that some of the items printed on the bill with the Sunday 10% surcharge. This was a glitch in the system and as discussed on the night with your group only happen too a couple of items on the bill which in total was $30 not $70. This was amended on the night before the bill was paid so no over payment was made.
