Nice to see the use of local product when ever possible. Great to have the game options, as not many in town offer anything other than beef/pork. Will definitely be back

Superb food- haute cuisine! We appreciate the attention to fine details, ambience & service.

The meal progression and the wine pairing was suberb. Everything was well presented and exploded with flavour. Kudos to the serving and kitchen team for making the night one to remember

The high quality of the cuisine was only exceeded by the friendly spirit of the Halliburton staff

A charming experience, absolutely world class, don’t change anything!
