The story behind our food...


Our Chef, Simone Butler, is a culinary artist known for her accomplished cuisine which is a masterful blend of African, Caribbean and Mediterranean culinary influences.


Simone is a Ghanaian who has settled on the Sunshine Coast with her husband Luke and she has devised a fascinating mix of international flavours.

“The cuisine that I am used to,” says Simone, ”uses a lot of different spices. I gravitate towards food that has a big spice hit and it influences my cooking. It’s always fascinated me – using spices and herbs to make food interesting and delicious and different.”

“One of the things that intrigues me,” adds Simone, ”is that places that are geographically far apart can have similar tastes. Like the Balinese who have a paste made from dried fish or prawns and it’s something very similar to a paste that we have in West Africa.”  The Restaurant is Fully Licenced.
