Favorite Dish: Three of us shared two wood fired pizzas $20.00 & $18.00 and a mixed Tapas plate $22 washed down with a bottle of Jim Barry 08 Watervale Reisling $27.00. It was more than enough and we took home half a pizza.
The child in the party enjoyed his chicken and chips with fruit and salad side, followed by ice cream and washed down with a generous glass of apple juice $14.90.
The pizza was tasty as was the selection from the mixed plate. Will be back for more!
