We had a fantastic night. The service was second to none and our host, (I won't call him a waiter) Cedric was great. Our Steaks were both cooked perfectly. I always cringe when my wife asks for "well done" but even her steak was beautifully cooked. All of the food was amazing and I was impressed with Cedric's recommendation for... More

Our table wasn't ready but we had a nice drink at the bar and a few minutes later we were all good to go. We went as a large group for work and evrything came out on time, starters are delicious and the Steaks are amazing. I really am a sucker for hot bread and butter also. Great experience!

We each chose the 200g Angus steak as we were quite sure we wouldn't be able to eat the bigger wagyu steaks on the menu (and didn't want to pay the 200g wagyu steak price!). We were not disappointed......the steak was... More

What a fabulous restaurant - the service from the team was fantastic, professional but also relaxed enough to have a laugh with the guests. The steaks we had were Devine - husband had the Rib eye on the done and I the eye fillet.

Recent visit after many years. Steak is beautiful and done the way we have ordered. Have to try the Wagyu Rump Cap but I suggest as an entree due to the rich flavour. I find the steak are of decent size. We have to resort to just coffee and no dessert. Good service but can improve. I suggest an extra... More
