It is a cool niche restaurant 30 pax mainly at the" bar". Go because it is; Romantic , because it's cool , because its friendly , its relaxed and in my... More

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

Want somewhere to have a great catch up with a few people.. Anise is a a great choice. You will probably be sitting at the bar so best for couples or groups of 3. 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...

Charming little establishment perfect for a degustation (with a twist). If you are wanting a degustation with white table clothes and silver service then this place is not for you however, if you are looking for a unique experience to try some nice food and wine and don’t mind sitting up at a bar then this place is for you....
