“Tasty food, not cheap though”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We passed this restaurant each day we walked along the boardwalk from Airlie Beach to Marina Shores where we were staying. The restaurant always had a crowd, regardless of the time of day. the food & atmosphere are deserving of this. Compared to other places we visited in the area, the quality of food & variety of wine was terrific. We ordered 4 hot tapas dishes which was enough for 2 people to share, only criticism, was all dishes came out together from the kitchen, so 2 were cold by the time we got to eat them, it's a shame they didn't stagger them leaving the kitchen, $19 for 3 cold scallops wasn't cool. I think the restaurant is fairly new, so I'm sure with tweaking, this will be recognised as one of the best in the area.

Thank you for your comments regarding the quality of food and ambience. You are correct in saying that being new there are things that will need tweaking and we hope on your next visit you will be impressed with the tweaking. Please ask for David and Jilly when you come in and enjoy a couple of dishes with us.

“Melt in your mouth”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

What a great restaurant for Airlie Beach, something that is a little bit different to the mainstream pubs and parmis. The food is cooked so superbly and I could not really find a fault with it.
Servers were very friendly and so were the owners. The chef came out to get our feedback on the meal and had a chat as well.
Great place, should do yourselves a favour and go!!

A fantastic place to have and discuss the flavours of great food. The service is lovely and great wine! A different experience to other restaurants in the area which makes it unique. I am not sure I want to post this review so I can keep this restaurant as a secret just for my dining pleasure.
