This was a busy restaurant the food service and ambiance excellent. Just one thing to note: despite the fact it was well staffed ( the staff were lovely) the manager/owner looked harassed and seem to be harassing the staff. He was intense to the point of amusement almost Basil Faulty like. He really needed to CALM DOWN - HAVE FAITH IN YOUR STAFF! Enjoy the successful joint you’re running.

Ate here for our last dinner in Nelson Bay - and what a restaurant to finish on! Our only regret was not being able to come for a subsequent meal another night! We had the pork dumplings as entree, mains of swordfish and lamb, and the 3-piece dessert platter (with sticky date pudding, tiramisu and white chocolate + strawberry spring rolls). All the meals we had were of excellent quality - no complaints to be made. The wait staff were attentive and friendly, and the restaurant itself did not feel crowded, with ample space between the tables indoors. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Nelson bay!

A group of 8 visited for dinner and were warmly welcomed by the proprietor and ushered to our table. The restaurant was reasonably full for a Thursday night.

The menu was very well constructed with all food variations covered. The pasta received a very high vote as did the seafood.

Great service from all staff members and a place we would revisit again

Great BYO wine restaurant. Pork belly and steak are really good here but the white chocolate raspberry spring rolls are divine!! Would definitely go back here again if in Port Stephens.
