    Very disappointed as we were seated outside on a 10 degree night and it was freezing. They did put a gas heater on in one corner once we arrived but it only warmed three people on the table. The blinds were closed part way. There weren’t enough wine glasses and we regularly had to walk in the restaurant to order extra food. It made a birthday celebration very disappointing and we were all so cold we just wanted to leave. We chose this restaurant over others in healesville as we are regular guests. If they didn’t have seating capacity inside they should have told us and we would have dined elsewhere. The young person serving us was not at all engaged and spent all her time in the restaurant apart from when we first arrived.

    The teriyaki salmon was amazing. I recommend this cafe when you’re in Healesville.

    The food and service is amazing at this place. This is our 3rd visit and chose to come back here for our anniversary. I should have taken some pics of the food as not only is it super fresh, but is also presented like works of art.

    We decided to go here on a whim for my husband's birthday lunch, based on the excellent reviews. Everything we had on the menu was delicious. It was also fantastic value and the staff were very friendly. We will definitely return. In my husband's words it's 'my new favourite cafe'. Thank you!
