“Superb food and service”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

My husband and I ate here on a Thursday after 5 long hours on the road and were exhausted; fortunately the place was quiet. This is a BYOB restaurant and our bottle of sauvignon blanc was immediately bathed in ice. The waitress was first rate, always there for us when we needed her, but never pushy. The owners (husband and wife, he the chef) were very friendly, but again not pushy. The food was scrumptious. The mango salad which included perfectly ripe morsels of mango, mango and ginger stilton cheese and arugula was one of the best salads we had ever eaten. My mouth waters as I remember it. I had the crispy duck, probably the best I have ever had and I've eaten in many different countries - perfectly moist and deliciously succulent inside and crispy on the outside. The scoops of icecream we had for dessert were delicious, especially the strawberry cream.
It's a good thing we live 5 hours from this restaurant or we might end up in the poor house!

“Very good food and excellent service”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Very high service quality, the waiter took excellent care of us. And the food was excellent : the mushrooms noodle were just awesome. The chocolate tarte was decadent and went so well with the great espresso.

“Great place, don't miss it”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Only had two nights in the area and tried this one on a recommendation..We were not disappointed with the food and the service. Our dinners included Rustic Egg Noodles and Chicken in the Hunter Style. It was a little hard to find on a rainy night. They could have done without the icicle lights hanging from the canvas..

“Good food and service, friendly staff, it would be nice if the landlord would fix the ceiling.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

The ceiling dosen't do this place justice. The food is prepared in contemporary style without getting weird. It's one of the top three restaurants in Kennett.
