With a table just about at high tide level, and with grass tussocks all around, you’d be forgiven for expecting sand in your dinner. Be assured this place is smart and stylish, with not a grain of sand to be seen inside – even a no-thongs dress code is enforced. The menu is an eclectic mix of flavours combined in unexpected ways. Duck and caramelised onion pizza is a top choice among patrons, but there’s more than pizza. A long bar, well stocked with wines and top-shelf choices, a trio of couches by a cosy wood heater and à la carte meals a cut above the usual bistro fare make this place a favourite.
