Food Heaven in Garden Setting
This is our second visit in a month, can't go past the delicious food. The platters are exceptional and the steak main course is way above an ordinary steak. Service is faultless and the garden setting is so relaxing, we are booked to go back again next week! Don't forget they have some of the best local wine around. Five stars

Great Place for Lunch
Petite Fleur has a lovely, fenced outdoor eating area complete with a great children's play area. The menu is varied to suit all tastes and hunger levels and my beef fillet meal was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The waiting staff were welcoming and efficient. We were able to taste a couple of wines free of charge before deciding on our choice. The dessert tasting platter was excellent. I highly recommend Petite Fleur.

A birthday treat - great service
It was my Mother's 93rd birthday and she loves platter food. We had 3 savoury platters between 4 of us. Seafood, meat and antipasto. The food was delicious and there was enough for us all. We followed up with 2 dessert tasting platters to share and this was equally delicious. The brownie and cheesecake were especially good. Although the chocolate mousse was also a treat.The wooden serving platters tip at each end so be careful! They bought all the staff out to sing Happy Birthday to Mom. The staff were wonderful, friendly, helpful and attentive..

What a fantastic lunch
My wife and I have just come home from one of the nicest lunches we've had in a long time. The seafood platter was perfect and the beer battered fish and chips were cooked exactly like they should. The staff are polite and friendly. Thank you!

Par excellent
A truly great lunch experience at this restaurant. The food was superb - beautifully presented and cooked to perfection - a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience with an excellent wine selection. The waiters were efficient and attentive and were more than happy to move us indoors when the rain clouds seemed to be gathering. The setting was beautifully relaxed and nice to see a small play area for children (not that we needed that!). We would most definitely return and would recommend to anyone. You won't be disappointed!!
