We visited for dinner on a Thursday night. Although the place was quiet, the food took nearly half an hour to arrive. We ordered the duck, beef cheeks and prawn fettuccine. We found the portions were on the small side for the price and more similar to a fine dining restaurant. Luckily the flavours were also up there and the dishes were beautifully presented. A lot of potential but needs a little fine tuning.

We were short for time so decided to revisit on the weekend for brunch. The wagyu burger caught the husbands eye the first visit so we ordered that along with malted buttermilk pancakes. We also ordered a caramel cheesecake for dessert. For drinks, we ordered the decadent Whistler double shot coffee shake made with the local pines milk and soft serve, and a large pot of masala chai. Service was friendly and fast. We were seated at the corner and with the daylight, managed to enjoy the panoramic views. Food as usual was delicious and satisfying. A must visit.

Don’t be put off by the negative reviews on here - this place is great. Great location, lovely food and fantastic Campos coffee. Not the fastest service but worth the wait.

Would recommend making a booking for this little restaurant - it is very popular for good reason! Lovely setting overlooking the water. Portions larger than I was expecting and well priced.

15 minutes waiting for a small flat white takeaway, busy but no means super busy. $4.60 and the coffee is well below average. Don’t you just love that?!
