Wine selection was excellent and still decently priced for a fine dining restaurant. We didn't have dessert, but the chef kindly sent out some home made... read more

Food was lovely venison and duck both enjoyable was having a lovely evening and rated 3 stars for food however chefs response to a dessert sent back, due to chefs unique interpretation, was different to a traditional expectation of this dessert, I removed the other two stars. We had described that this dessert wasn't what we had expected and the... More

Really nice food personal service. Expensive over charged wine but most restaurants have that. Food was really delicious. It is very old school decor, tables were uncomfy but i think they like this look. We gave compliments to the chef for a gr8 meal.

The food and service was really great. The location was a short walk from the hotel we stayed in. I really enjoyed the tastes and flavours of the salmon dish I ordered. The vegetables were cooked to perfection and melded all the flavours together. The chips with aioli were a delicious side treat.

While we were waiting obviously we had coffee, juice, yoghurt and a smoothie but after waiting an hr for a proper meal we had had enough, we actually were going to give it 5 more minutes before leaving then our order...

We arrived without a booking on a Thursday night and were lucky to get one of the last two tables. The setting in the old treasury building is quite magnificent. They offer a degustation menu but as they were having a special on lobster that is what we had. It was a very generous whole lobster for $40. The beers... More
