In 2003 I was working as a chef at Southbank and realised this was not where I wanted to spend the rest of my life. I heard about a run down restaurant in Doncaster and saw an opportunity. My dream was to create a fine dining experience for the people in Manningham that reflected my passion for food wine and people. So with the support of my wife Helen we made the big step of becoming restauranteurs. Further, with a loyal team, we have managed to live my ongoing dream. There was predictable resistance to a different style of dining. We have persevered through tough times and good times to have created a sustainable level of excellence.

The team has worked together for over 10 years which has allowed us to achieve consistent high levels of customer service and great quality food. We have an extensive wine list currently recognized by the Gourmet Traveler wine list awards over the last 5 years, as well as highly complimentary yearly reviews by The Age Good Food Guide. We are unique in offering consistent high quality food wine and service for the people Manningham and beyond.
