Tussock is a real treat. And great place to be tucked away from the rat race! Nice and quite. I have been there several times . The food and the service has been great every time

Great for kids and adults, with a great three course kids menu the kids enjoyed. The mains were large and delicious, the atmosphere is friendly and casual.

“one of the best”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

quiet, relaxing restaurant, good choose of well presented and with large quantities of starters, mains and very good desserts. nice and careful staff. The restaurant isn't in the truistic and central area of the nice town, but is very well worth a visit. Not far from the botanic garden.

“#Fine Dining#”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Don't forget to stop by for a meal when you are driving down King Street. The place to go for that intimate dinner or if you are dining alone. But don't forget, it's also family friendly. A fantastic restaurant which caters to your needs, whether you are staying at the Aspen on King or dining in. Delicious food that is professionally prepared + room service & very warm decor.

Thank you Dave and staff for all the delicious meals this week.
