What we do

Let us help you customise a menu and price to suit your special occasion that can be: Wedding, Party, Birthday, BBQ, Themed party, Private function, school event.


Using local and exotic ingredients gives you the option to create your own buffet. This allows your guests to interact whilst dining and gives them the choice to eat as much or little as they like.
