I’m a picky eater and meat is rarely cooked to my liking but the staff were happy to accommodate. The Moroccan Lamb could not have been improved. Staff were friendly and helpful.

A group of 6 dined here last night and everyone enjoyed their meals. The waitress was attentive and helpful and the dishes were both well presented and tasty. The trio of dips were a great platter to share as starters.

Wandered in on the off-chance that the steaks in the menu would be good. Was not disappointed - awesome large steak served on mushy peas with big chunky potato fries. Great lunch and almost too much!!!

We ate dinner here tonight. We shared a meat platter for 2 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Just enough to eat without being over full. Only downfall was the steak was under cooked for my liking but if you like medium rare you could not fault...More

It was steaming hot, and the mashed potato was beautiful too. Semi freddo very more-ish. Cosy inside with 2 fires; ideal on a rainy winter's day.

Lunch on a chilly Sunday in spacious surroundings, with only detraction being a wall wallpapered with rather old comic books. Menu was quite reasonable and staff attentive. Dishes of duck and squid were well presented and quite tasty; easy to overcook, but were certainly not....More

Came here for $15 lunch when the place we'd planned to visit for lunch was closed (unfortunately not uncommon for cafes/restaurants in Launceston to be closed on Mondays). Nice serve of beer battered fish, shoestring fries and salad. Cool venue whether you dine inside or...More
