It's Friday and you deserve to put your feet up and have a cocktail or two after a long hard week. Come in and let us look after you. #friyay #Friday #cocktail #cheers
Don't wait until the weekend to have dinner out. We're open for dinner everyday during the week from 5:30pm til late. With the warmer weather now in full swing and extended daylight in the evening, dining alfresco is the perfect way to finish off the day. We have plenty of tables in our front courtyard and on our balcony upstairs, why not drop in and visit us soon?
Do you love seafood? How about Barramundi? Here is a fillet of crispy pan fried Barramundi served  with Yellow Asparagus and Broadbeans. How delicious!

We have vegetarian options that would surely satisfy meat lovers too. Like this main course new to our menu - Carrot garden with turnips, fennel and radish - doesn't it look scrumptious? #vegetarian #meatfree

  • This place is amazing, great atmosphere, the perfect place for a cold Melbourne winter night. The quality is second to none. I have dined at top end restaurants and this place gets 10 out of 10 for me, the best by far.
