Along the top of Trafalgar Street , niche, upper end rustic luxury and very good waiting. The food overpriced in the main courses, the wine list adequate. However it is not something memorable in terms of the culinary experience. Distribution of tables, levels and sections, wood floor with character, prompt service all work to the joint's advantage. It is simpler and cooler to the one next door which figures as the head of the local rat-pack, namely Hopgoods.

We had a really great meal at this restaurant. Top quality food. Service was very good as well. It was a bit cold inside and it was difficult for them to heat the place without some people being too hot - just the kind of heaters they use and where they are positioned.
Great place for a special occasion.

Loved this little cafe/restaurant. Had a European feel ti ti especially downstairs with the long bar, and seating. Excellent breakfast and coffee, came back twice! Also free WiFi - just the ticket and highly recommend. Keep up the good work

Very pleasant, and first rate food. A short walk from the Sails Motel, which was very relaxing after a long day's drive

We enjoyed a creative meal at Ford's in a fun and bistro like atmosphere. We liked the menu choices and the attentive service. The restaurant is nicely appointed with tasteful choices in the decorations. It was a pleasant way to spend a leisurely evening.
