Owners Michael and Cherrill Higgins have created a warm, family atmosphere in their pale blue dining room. From friendly service to the full-flavoured menu offering mains such as blue-eye matched with oxtail ragout, clearly it’s not only city restaurants that can achieve the often elusive balance of attention to detail, ambience and cuisine. Quaint touches such as a guest book and the generous offer of a lift from the owners at the end of the evening if taxis are scarce also help explain why people rave about this place – from Sydney all the way up the Central Coast. It offers a special stop for a wonderful dining experience.
