    Only disappointment was lack of KI wines. If you are promoting local KI produce, similarly wines should be so also. We have tasted outstanding KI wines.

    we spent our 20 year wedding anniversary at Sunset and were delighted with the food, the service and the ambience. The waitresses were attentive and interested without being intrusive. The food was as beautiful to look at as it was delicious. Watching the kangaroo and its joey frolicking and dining on the ground below was a charming addition
