Went as part of our youngest sons Wedding party for a great start to his big day, Lewis couldn't have chosen a more perfect venue, with the views across Caroline Bay Beach, and the excellent choice from the Breakfast Menu, with such lovely company.

While not "fine dining" this place was well above "café" or "pub" food. I had the seafood special. It was one of the better meals of its type. Well cooked, generous portions without being OTT. Service was rather special. Thoroughly recomend

Went to Fusion to find the restaurant booked out so would suggest booking in advance. It was a lovely balmy night so we were happy to sit at one of their outside tables. Started with a specialty beer that was pretty dreadful but everything else was worthwhile. The waitress was efficient, my pork belly meal was delicious and the friends... More
