Last night, the restaurant was enjoying good patronage for one of its final nights.

In September 2016, the 410sqm business was for sale for $350,000 + SAV.

It was previously reported that a Singaporean investor had splashed out almost $1.9 million for the fit-out of the bar and restaurant in Rockhampton's fine-dining precinct on the riverbank.
