I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

All of the food was nicely presented and delicious. The lamb rump on sweet potato mash was perfectly cooked and very tasty. There is a relaxing ambiance that is enhanced by the helpful friendly waitstaff, as well as the lovely views.

Most of the downstairs part of Paymasters Cafe is open to the outside, as is the upstairs verandah. Although casual and relaxed, the space is also suitable for romantic intimate dining as the well-spaced tables are dressed with white tablecloths. They will cater for functions and also hold special event dinners such as an upcoming fixed menu Valentine's Day dinner.
