Went here with my partner for valentines day. Fresh salted bread with olive oil as an appertiser. Bread was gorgeous! Mains - barramundi for me, steak for him. Both were full of flavour but a little overcooked. Dessert of salted pecan pie was the stand out dish of the night. Also had the cheese plate - a little pedestrian. All in all, a good night food wise. The staff really made the night. Excellent service, really friendly. I'd go back, but it's not on the top of my list.

The food was presented really well, 10/10. Unfortunately the taste and flavours did not match. I had the twice cooked confit duck which was dry and tasted more like beef jerky, the sauce and flavours were all too sweet and did not have a nice balance of flavours. My partner had the tandoori pork belly which unfortunately was rubbery, the skin was not crispy and lacked the tandoori flavour. No attention to detail from the wait staff and Not once did the waitress ask how our meals were.

Visited this restaurant with 2 friends. Found the food to be very tasty but the portions size on the small side. The staff were attentive at the beginning of the meal but then forgot to bring a second glass of wine that was requested. We did not feel rushed at all during our meal which was welcoming. Would return when there is a menu change to try again but will visit other places in the mean time.

My husband and I have been eating here since they opened late 2012. We've eaten at numerous restaurants in Sydney and overseas and the quality and flavors are second to none. This is THE place to eat when dining in Cronulla or the Sutherland Shire. We have been lucky to try so many dishes as they update the menu every 3 month's and I'm yet to get a meal that is average. Not one dish that we wouldn't order again. They've just moved into bigger premises which is a bonus as it means we should be able to get a booking more often. Geoff and the team have been doing a fabulous job and they'll continue to get our business! Hubby has one request, put the lamb cigars back on the menu - thanks Geoff!

We visited one week after they moved to the larger and improved premises, staff were very welcoming, think he may have been the owner, nice atmosphere, menu is brief but gives options, we went for quail and beef salad for entree both very good mains went with their signature dish being duck Maryland cooked the traditional way using plenty of salt with a side of green vegetables . We were a little early so meals arrived quickly and were very well cooked and delicious. Wine list was small but good selection.
We enjoyed the experience and will definitely come again.
