The only thing I can fault is the creme brûlée .. Sooo sweet... Way too sweet.. Service was a but slow... But it's a Friday night and they didnt push to do 2 sittings like so many other upmarket restaurants... Just fantastic.. Everything was lovely.. Except perhaps the baramundi.. Maybe it's not a French fish?? Hehe
