After a few years of only opening for breakfast and lunches, the owners have decided to start opening for evening meals again. A nice selection of tasty starters and mains coupled with friendly hostess made for a very pleasant dining experience.

Winter is coming! and very happy to see this lovely spot offering their menu in the evenings. Excellent value and service and the curry, chowder and beef cheeks just divine. Great honest food, with a lovely cosy atmosphere.

Amazing calamari with pineapple and chilli salsa. So fresh and tasty. I forgot to take a photo it was so good until I'd finished! Great coffee as well - this is one of my favourites cafes on the Gold Coast.

We have tried lunch and breakfast here. Reasonable food with average service. Nothing to draw us back again, particularly with other great restaurants only a few metres away.

I was invited to a luncheon, with other, for the two course special and wine. I was very impressed by the standard of the food, slow cooked was as it should be, soft and tasty, not mush. Great variety of many dishes, and staff were pleasant.

Staff were pleasant and courteous. We had the 2 course special and wine. Food was delivered promptly and can't say anything else except that is was absolutely amazing. The beef cheeks were simply melt in your mouth, and the calamari with pineapple chili salsa was incredible. Also had the bruschetta which would have to be the best on the coast.... More

I have read some of the reviews and can only can on say for us service was excellent and the food was faultless.
