Only available on Tuesday and Wednesday night.

The desserts are well priced at $12.50 but not as good as the other courses.
The best is the black sesame seed icecream that comes with the mango mousse layered vanilla sponge and coconut espuma…

IMG_2156
…The lemon and lime cheesecake is not quite sweet enough…

IMG_2158
…The pistachio chocolate terrine is very, very rich.

..and there’s an Adffogato – Vanilla ice cream, shot of co ee, Tuaca liquor.

Perhaps the best choice for dessert would be the trio of house made ice-cream.

Wine by the glass starts at around $9..

…and there’s a bar menu.

The views of the lake are lovely in the day time…however generally the decor has a club feel as you would expect.
