    Outstanding dishes as usual. Well trained service staff, always alert to what you may need while dining. Come with an appetite and if possible choose the Family style, you’ll be glad you did!

    Food and service were excellent. The set family style menus are a great deal. It's nice that they have ever changing daily specials. Spot prawn season just started in our area and 1 of the specials was a glazed grilled spot prawn dish.
