Degustation Menu with Wine Start with what's great. 1. Wine is lovely and well matched to the food 2. If you are wanting a light meal this is a great choice So why give it a 6/10?- it was the way the venue made you feel 1. Earn and Churn venue- seating is so close together you almost need to...

We arrived not knowing what to expect from what seemed like a small restaurant. our experience however was nothing small. Unsure of what to expect the staff made our choice easy by suggesting wines to start what would be considered a food orgasm. Each course was accomanied by a wine with a story and enabled you to experience a selection... More

The perfect location for couples. Seated at a long bar on stools with comfortable backs, my husband and I enjoyed a "Monday Magnum" evening. $45 per head for 4 small courses, with a glass of champagne included in the evening's per head price. Food was absolutely delicious and my husband declared the wine pairings were top notch. The knowledgeable young... More

Wonderful menu, fantastic wine choices and great service. Smallish menu with interesting options so you may need to consider your audience but for those who like... More

Unless you're a group of 10 or more (booking most or all of the "bench seats")), this place is perfect for couples. You sit and eat up at the "bar" which feels more like a home kitchen really; staff are delightful, chef came to our seats (as distinct from table) to pour on the vodka syrup on the delicious scallops...
