Baked scallops with garlic and chilli butter
Well cooked but tasted purely of butter.
Twice cooked pork belly with Asian slaw and micro herbs
Great flavours except the pork belly skin was extremely chewy and difficult to cut/bite through.
Soft shell crab tacos with smashed avocado, salsa fresca and chipotle aioli
Crispy crab with a delicious combination of ingredients.
Beef brisket sliders with smoked hickory BBQ sauce
Seafood paella with tiger prawns, calamari, mussels, barramundi and saffron rice
This was in the ‘something bigger’ section of the menu so I was expecting something well…bigger. This dish was a little salt heavy otherwise the flavours were good and the seafood plentiful.
Trio of vegetable crisps
An interesting mix of sweet potato, potato and red cabbage.
The inside dining area was poorly lit so we decided to grab a table in the lovely back courtyard. Service was friendly and the food enjoyable. Note that the $10 paellas are only available 12-4pm on Sundays.
