We have been there on boxing day and therefore it was a set menu. The different courses were all cooked great and had nice flavors. The service did a good job and the wine pairing was also matching the food.

Amazing food, been a few times before also and never disappoints. Always has interesting and delicious items eg. Emu this time. Only fault was we were double charged for our sparkling water which is annoying because I didn’t pick this up until after we left.

zucchini flowers entre were beautiful, best I've ever had scallop entree was well cooked and full of flavour served with chargrilledl corn Main of Moreton Bay bug was ordinary, also served with a lot of chargrilled corn and the addition of tiny pork belly didn't really work for me, would have liked more Bug. This place was always a must do in the Valley, unfortuneately no longer the case.

Wagu was disappointing, small, no taste, not impressed. Other than that, service was first class and all other food and wine was well presented and tasted great.
