this is a 5 star restaurant with one star service. It's a French restaurant with an extensive Spanish Australian and Italian wine list. None of which seem to be available. The wines we requested they were out of stock. The list of desert wines was reasonable but wow they were out of every wine on the list. The Head Waiter... More

The infused champagne cocktails were a huge highlight for us and I highly recommend the Wagyu as a main! The only let down was the amount of time it took between each... More

Opted for the degustation with matching wines: good choice all round! The quality of each course was very high ( the wagyu beef was amazing), service was good and the portion sizes were of a good size. The matching wines proved a good complement to the courses. Lovely ambience. All in all, a most wonderful evening. If looking for a... More
