    I booked a table online for Friday night, celebrating my cousins birthday, and a weekend away in the Dandenong's, I requested a table near the fire for the 3 of us, They nailed it, we were greeted by outstanding staff from the moment we were seated, The food was delicious wine list perfect and a candle delivered to our table placed in our dessert, so super special, I work in hospitality and was so impressed with everyone, thank you staff amazing we can’t wait to come back with our families 😀

    Perfect place for my mum and I to have dinner - We enjoyed the southern fried chicken parma, and the Italian parma and both were delish! Portion sizes were perfect (my schitzel was off the plate) and the chips and salad were tasty. We were right next to the fire which was delightful!

    Food was generous and delicious. Once I understood the ordering system the service was very good considering how busy they were. The staff were friendly and efficient. My only issue was being offered outside seating the heater was not very good but being offered a blanket for our legs was appreciated.

    We had a very enjoyable lunch. Staff were very attentive but also happy to wait as our friends arrived a considerable time after us. We ordered a variety of meals between us and all found them to be delicious. The portions were huge though so we couldn’t finish everything. We were surprised that the parma (a Mexican parma special) didn’t come with salad. Ambience a little busy as staff went back and forth and not much space between tables. But not noisy; we had no problem holding a conversation. Overall a great experience and we will return.
