Great friendly service

Managed to get a booking on a Saturday the day before. But usually book up way in advance. The staff were great and had so many good recommendations. Definitely pricey, but worth it for a treat.

Visited Australasia with my partner and another couple and I have to say it did not disappoint. The atmosphere is great, the food is amazing, although quite small portions and there are some really tasty cocktails! Now, although the food, drink and atmosphere were great they were completely out done by our astounding waiter Jonathan! He was extremely welcoming and... More

This place is brilliant, from the interior to the food! The black cod is recommended! The problem with this place is you can't get a reservation it's a nightmare! But I would highly recommend trying!

We had been recoomended this restaurant by a friend and booked to avoid disappointment. We started off with a cocktail, which was delightful, before moving into the dining room. The waitress was very helpful and advised us to select 3 dishes each. The food arrived like works of art and tasted as delicious as it looked. It was an expensive... More

Wow, what a stunning restaurant, absolutely beautiful decor. Great staff and the food is just mouthwatering. We chose 6 small dishes from the lunch menu, like Asian tapas I suppose, and every one was delicious. It is fairly expensive but well worth it for the food and surroundings.

We love the décor, vibrant atmosphere and of course food is delicious, very tasty and the menu offers something different from other restaurants. We were served by Jonathon, he was great, very friendly and most helpful with the menu choices, in fact we... More

So after looking at TripAdvisor we decided to go there. The location isn't the same as the address because the restaurant is UBDERGROUND (in front of the Armani shop) We were impressed by the interior. We liked the tapas or traditional ways of eating. (I went traditional and partner went tapas style) Bertie (our waitress) was amazing looking after our... More
