Despite some of the reviews on here, our experience at this restaurant was a very good one. The service provided was quick and friendly, and the food was well presented and delicious. What was particularly impressive was that this restaurant was actually open, when so many are closed on a Sunday night. Highly recommended, not just on Sunday nights!

This place is great if you go to bed at 8pm, this is general in Canberra very little open in terms of food after 9 pm. We thought this place attached to a hotel might be open a little longer, we seem to get door slammed in our face rather than saying we close in 5min but can do a... More

Food is good, lots of choices and reasonable priced. If you stay at the hotel you get 10% at the restaurant. Drinks are also reasonably priced.

We left simply feeling sad that we wasted $80. We were seated by a window that had a draft. The drink orders took 15 minutes and a reminder before they arrived. Staff then came and asked if we wanted out side dish to come to table at the same time as our mains. We said yes. They then bought that... More

The service was excellent, reasonably priced, and the food, I couldn't fault! We had Sicilian spice chicken and fettucini and it was exquisite, full of flavour and the homemade pasta made the dish! It was a gourmets delight. For we had potato skins with Aoli. These were average. The dessert, well that's another story! It blew out minds and taste... More

Great service! Food excellent A great surprise, this little restaurant located in a corner of Northbourne Ave. Away from the trendy areas, has created a reputation on its own right Highly recommended Had dinner Saturday night, all tables full, glad I made a reservation
