We had our end of financial year business dinner here in a private room by the wine cellar. The atmosphere was sophisticated with a great wine selection and food to die for with something for everyone on the menu. Overall a beautiful evening however much on the higher end price tag

Service and decor was great, got a table facing the beach view which was lovely, entree was yummy so did the main, just the portion for main is a bit too small but still very enjoyable.

A great dinner from an outstanding chef. We attended for the guest chef, Donovan Cooke. Donovan, with Steve, proved an excellent menu.

We had the scallops for entree which were a revelation and for mains we had duck and pork which were also gorgeous... More

This restaurant truly is the whole package. The service was above and beyond expectation! The wine knowledge was impeccable, especially with complimenting the dishes perfectly. The Scallop dish and Tortellini are to die for, their freshness and quality will leave your tastebuds tantalized and wanting more. For the mains we had the Lamb and the Duck breast shared between us,... More
