    Excellent food and value for money. Please note we dined using a scoopon deal which had 3 courses plus 2 glasses wine and beer each for $35 total for two people. That aside, we definitely will return to try out the normal menu and drinks list. Ashleigh our waitress was awesome. Very friendly, good sense of humour and very attentive without being obtrusive. A real gem. Though is was a little quiet at lunch, can't wait to return for dinner and really soak up the atmosphere.

    A friend gifted a voucher. The lunch experience was very nice. Service was awesome. Food was very good. Dessert was held off until later at our request. Worth the wait. Ambience was very good.
