This place has been a regular favourite for friends and family over the years, but after this I will not return until I am sure there has been a change of owner. It seems that it has been sold to an Indian family, so the curries could be delicious. However , Quality of food is disgusting now.....my chicken pieces were... More

DO NOT DINE HERE! It is grossly overpriced, and the food is honestly some of the worst I've ever tasted. I've actually never made a review before but this was needed. Our food wasn't cooked, and they put so much salt on it our mouth was dry after 2 bites. But more importantly not cooked!!!! My friends drink had a... More

What a little gem, fantastic little cabin styled restaurant (very sassafras). The service was top notch, the lovely lady who made a partners coffee went over and beyond to make sure it was to her satisfaction, she served as the following day we went and was fantastic. The food itself was delish, the potato pancake is a new favourite. Price... More

We have visited this restaurant every time we visit Melbourne over many years. It's been an all time favourite. We particularly looked forward to the Duck a l'orange which was the best we had ever tasted. We were surprised to see a change of owners when we arrived. Also disappointed to see our favourite meal was now off the menu... More

We use to visit this place all the time, but we won't be going again. The prices have increased a lot but the real issue is service. 25 mins just to make a couple of milkshakes. The waitress told us to come on Thursdays as its quieter then and the service is better. We went on Sunday and the place... More

We have been here a few times and always enjoyed ourselves, hence going back - the last time we went the premises had changed ownership and it appears they have little experience in food service. It was a cold winter morning and our food was served up on ice cold plates, meaning cold food by the time it got to... More

It will take them ten to fifteen minutes to bring you a glass of coke. About the same for a coffee. A terrible, terrible coffee. Whilst you wait...and wait...and wait for food, you will be entertained but a floor show. Sure, it's just people complaining and walking out, but it's still entertaining. The best part about this place is the... More

It was a pleasant surprise to return to this restaurant and find that new owners are in charge and it has improved out of sight. The service, or at least our very friendly, efficient young woman, has really improved. She was quick, well presented and keen to ensure that we had a pleasant visit. Coffee is still good. Lovely leaf... More

Had a friend recommend it and I have to say, one of the best Steaks I have ever tasted and the Vegtables were clean, crisp and juicy. An English Tudor Style Decor. Will be back, perhaps to taste Pancakes this time. Family run and Nero the Owner who was also waiting the tables was a delight to deal with, very attentive.
