We had an enjoyable meal, the service was excellent and the meal itself was nice, however I had hoped that our booking was for the more formal restaurant but we were out near the bar. The noise level was so high that we had to raise our voices to be heard and when cocktails were being prepared behind the bar we just didnt talk until it was finished.

I will go back as it is a lovely area and food and service was great, but will be sure to ask where the table is situated when booking.

I love coming here and sitting on the deck - you could sit out there all day with perfect weather ie; not too hot or cold! The calamari was delicious - melts in your mouth and the service was spot on.

Couldn’t believe that when I ordered I said no salad as I have a tomato allergy, when I got my steak dinner there was salad on my plate and the waitress could only say just don’t eat it, even after telling her that I have an allergy for the second time.
Not to mention I ordered my steak medium/well and it came out under cooked on one half and over cooked on the other half.

Although there was plenty of room our reserved table was right next to the door to the back deck which had constant in and out traffic. Door was often not closed and being a windy day was somewhat uncomfortable. Would have been nicer to have been placed in a more quite, out of the way area. Beautiful view with the lake at capacity and lovely food.

We all enjoyed our meals, but hubby and I learned why we don't order chicken parmi -- TOO MUCH food for us, though this was not as gigantic as some places. It was very good and fries/chips were lovely, as was the salad. Just too much to manage. Our friends managed their meals just fine and enjoyed them (lamb shank and green curry).
