This place is gorgeous! You go down a side walkway then find this stunning old brick heritage building with stone walls and a dining room on the ground floor. Menu is well priced given the location and there's heaps of street parking. Service was super quick and despite a misunderstood order, the lady was lovely and ran back and had a replacement meal in less than 10 minutes woth a smile, free of charge. Will be back!

We held my Dads 80th birthday function there yesterday. We had a 2 course set menu - the food was amazing, you must try the Salt & Pepper Calamari, and, the Chicken Parcel is a more than generous meal of 2 parcels with a creamy garlic sauce. The function room was nicely decorated, the staff were professional and friendly and we will definitely be back.
