All three of our meals were beautifully cooked and the service was excellent. They even brought out a little cake for me as it was my birthday. Would definitely recommend if you want a quiet dinner.

Last night in Airlie before going home to Sydney and the cold. This restaurant was recommended to me and it certainly lived up to that. In spite of a large group turning up late, the service for the two of us was timely with comfortable gaps between courses and the staff very friendly and attentive. A relaxed atmosphere with a...

Outstanding service from happy and friendly staff, our group enjoyed a fantastic meal with a laugh and a joke and at times the staff joined in with us. One of our best nights out was at this restaurant with the owner John and his team of dedicated staff, very memorable.

Here you can find some very traditional dishes like the Beer Battered Fish and Chips and then also serving up International cuisine like Japanese Grilled Eggplant and the Malay Curried Laksa. Also a delicious dish is the Fish of the day grilled with a mango and avocado Salsa.

Three taxi drivers recommended this restaurant to us so we assumed it would be good! It is always off putting when you are the only two people in a restaurant. My partner chose the Thai Fish Cakes which he said were soggy. His beef fillet was reasonable however my duck was tasteless and I am sure it's first roasting had... More

Delicious food in a nice setting coming in large portions and friendly service. The eggplant appetizer is something to try... and share if you want to have also a main course.

So glad the taxi driver on our first day in Airlie recommended it. We went for dinner on a Thursday night and sat outdoors next to a lovely garden and water feature... so relaxing. The owner and his son in law provided amazing service... the son in law even offered to drive us back to our room as there was... More
