We have a holiday house at nearby Mollymook, and found out about this place last year. Since then, we make aping of going whenever we're down for a break.
The menu is not extensive, but makes excellent use of whatever is fresh and in season, with much coming from their own nearby gardens.
Thursday "locals night" is great value, with 3 courses and a glass of wine for $55 a head. And you get a choice from 2 mains and 2 desserts.
The location is beautiful, particularly during the day or in the early evening once daylight saving starts.
Decor is plain, and the place can get a bit noisy when (as often happens) it's packed. But in fine weather, you can sit outside on the verandah, and enjoy relative serenity.
Service is excellent and knowledgeable, with country friendliness on top of those qualities.
The food has never failed in our many visits (or those of our friends and family). Te menu is small, no doubt to ensure that everything gets proper attention. No doubt for the same reason, the pace is relaxed.
Everything is prepared and cooked to perfection, and with really deft use of spices, accompaniments and condiments. The flavours shine through; they never have to struggle with some overambitious attempt to achieve novelty. The produce is the story.
The wine list is small but good in variety, reasonably priced and with an acceptable range by the glass.
By local standards the prices are on the high side, but by city standards they're nothing excessive. And whatever way you view it, the value is terrific.
Don't miss it if you're in the area.
