Ingrid Kelder – September 2020

Great location. Love the cocktails (Mamma go mango is the best) and the staff are really helpful and friendly

Jordan Cannon – October 2020

Best little hidden gem in Airlie Beach. Worth the walk up the hill for the great atmosphere. Simple but good menu. Mix with the locals and enjoy beautiful views.

Elizabeth Duignan – November 2020

One of the best steaks I’ve ever had . My husband had halloumi burger 1st class. Excellent service. Wonderful friendly staff. Will definitely go back when up that way again
