One of the better restaurants in Darling. On a cold night the lamb shank and chicken curry were good hearty meals. It's a cosy little eatery. Recommended for dinner.

Recommend the esbien and kingklip. Do note that the esbein is cooked in a slightly different manner. Pleasure to talk to the owner.

Awesome little Bistro in a converted house in Darling. Food is great although some items on the menu were not available due to a very busy weekend. The service is exemplary as well as the owners attitude.
