We walked here from our guesthouse and though it was full they managed to squeeze us in. Meal was excellent, wine good. The spun sugar on the creme brûlée was impressive. Setting is beautiful. Flower displays were wonderful. They even had hydrangeas in the wash hand basins. Original if surprising! Would go back again even if the wrought iron chairs... More

On the Rocks will never see us again. Ravioli starter. Hideous to the point of being inedible. And cold. The only warmth in the dish was from the warm plate it was served on. Pork belly no better. Sauce had been slopped over the plate and running down the side. Crackling had been removed prior to cooking and MICROWAVED to... More

Stopped off for a bottle of wine outside. It's shelted from the wind which makes it a great venue on a windy day. Did not eat but the wine was great and service was good. Felt very welcomed and will be back to try the food.

I booked this reastaurant 6 months in advance because it looked fabulous and classy. We had an intimate wedding, so was only three people, 5 including the minister and his wife. I phoned several times to make sure everything was perfect. I was going to get married on the beach under a beautiful canopy and have a meal, cake and... More
