Fodor's Review

The eclectic style and fine food attracts young, old, and everyone in between. A line of paw prints trails along the maroon ceiling. Poetry of somewhat dubious merit also winds along the walls, is painted on the chair backs, and even circles the extremities of plates. On the psychedelic blackboard menu look for the smoked salmon salad or gourmet fish and wedges. For dessert try the raspberry and chocolate steam pudding or feijoa and apple crumble. There is a kid's menu

too if you are travelling with children.
