Was so impressed with the revamp, cool, open and airy. Absolutely loved the fish and chips. 10/10, great view to top it off.

It's an awesome restaurant. The atmosphere was great as we watched the Bulls vs Hurricanes. It caters for the family and even the little ones. The food was great and the service was good. One can take a walk along the wooded walk way after your meal. Just awesome. Totally loved it.
