A group of us 17 in all had lunch [prior booking essential]. This is not the first visit to this restaurant, but the friendly staff and the quality of their food is excellent. Not too pricey but good value.

Hi Discover-it, to read that 'you keep coming back' and to receive a five star review is the best feedback any venue could ask for. I can only hope that we never disappoint you in the future and thank you once again, best regards Kristina.

TTook two visitors from Brisbane while touring the Yarra Valley. The prawns in curry sauce was to die for. The spaghetti carbonara was second to none. Great wine list of local wines at reasonable prices. Staff were friendly and no fuss efficient. Would recommend highly.
