Bought a Groupon for 6 people but only 5 showed up. This was for a 5 course seafood tasting menu with Chandon. The staff were very friendly and accommodating as a few people wanted to change drinks and such. First up was the arancini balls. This dish was tasty and filled with cheesy goodness! The pine nuts gave it a... More

A nice restaurant in a row of eateries at the Blu Hotel. It is an old pier building that has been turned into a hotel, residences and eateries. It is sort of off the beaten track and not easily accessible if you are in the CBD except by taxi. It is right on the water with lots of outdoor spaces.... More

We enjoyed a midweek dinner here recently - it was not as full as teh other restaurants closeby which led to a slight lack of atmosphere. The staff were helpful, but the service was somewhat shoddy (pre-dinner drinks served after a long wait and came with the bread just prior to the mains arriving). Main courses are skewed to red...

I would give the restaurant 5 except we had a testy waiter (who may well have been the boss) at the start of our meal. He did calm down but soured our experience. The food is extremely flavoursome with more than ample on the plate. A geat variety although seafood was dominant. The out look over the wharf was pleasant... More

I took my husband for his birthday dinner and assumed we were going to have a fantastic fine dining experience. Unfortunately this is not the case. When I enquired about the lobster’s market price, they advised it would be around $200 per kg which is absolutely ridiculous! Ended up having selections from the usual a la carte seafood menu. The...
