    Great restaurant. Food was delicious. Loved every dish we chose. The setting is lovely. We sat overlooking the water . Staff were wonderful and lowered blinds when winds picked up.

    A great place to catch up and have a delicious meal. The new menu is awesome, a great variety of choice. The boas are scrumptious.

    The price was great considering the quality and freshness of food. I love how the menu constantly changes, and the vego options are full of surprises. The meals offer delightful and unique flavours and textures - it's a real treat to get out and go to this place. Kudos to the chef and the wonderful staff. Ambience is also 10/10 and there was a band playing when we went.

    A friend recommended the Spice Monkey to us; she said it is the best in Forster. I don't know if it is but it must be right up there, with a fine dining twist on Asian/Japanese cuisine. Delicious, delicate flavours and I loved the Monkey magic lager.

    On a noisy Friday evening at the tail end of happy hour, the live musician had to struggle. Three of the four dishes ordered were very good and delivered in sequence so they did not get cold because they all came at once. The tempura vegetables were a bit disappointing after the other dishes with batter a bit heavy for tempura and lack of variety in the vegetables (i.e Mostly one vegetable). Service pleasant and helpful. BYO was appreciated.

    Everything we ate was delicious! Especially the miso eggplant and honey chicken. The pork hock was a small portion for the price and mains should include some veggies rather than charge extra. Perfect place for sharing! Lots of cocktails. Nice atmosphere and views.

    We are enjoying trying out a number of things on the new menu. We have been 3 Thursdays in a row. The food is too good to miss.
