I was recommended the boulabaisse, which came with scallops, large pieces of lobster and crab, mussles, and prawns. They were very generous with their seafood portions and when I asked for take away because I was exhausted from walking around all day, they gave me a lovely take away package which was made with love so I could have the...

Love the food,love the service. Beautifully presented food and just as beautiful to eat. We had the seven course meal and left full. Looks can be deceiving as each meal is small. Any bigger and we would have exploded. Have eaten here before and had quail and beef cheek yum. We eat out a lot and its one of our... More

Firstly I am shocked to see this so low on the ratings... Myself, my sister and her fiancé came here for a classy lunch for her birthday. The entrance was bright and beautiful and modern decor. We chose a table close to the window so we could get even more natural light whilst we are. The lunch menu was very... More

The food was ok. Not fantastically good. Dessert a little bland. But nice atmosphere and polite staff. They like to give little surprises that I don't really like however, pork wrapped vegetables to non pork eaters and fishy tasting cesar salad

Had a fabulous meal which was finished off with the sticky fig pudding, very different and very good. The staff were very friendly and professional. Good value for money. If we lived in the area it would be definitely be a restaurant that we would visit regularly

We had the degustation Menu, well worth the $88.00. The food is really world class. Service was a bit patchy although very friendly many young staff and appears to be a lack of direction and training. The restaurant is in a great location near to everything and is very clean. Chef Jason is the owner so you know its going... More

The food was excellent and wine was superb. Really enjoyed the degustation menu absolutely brilliant! 90 bucks for 7 courses yes please and if you want wine with every course 130. Jason and the guys are doing fantastic work in the kitchen. Service could do with some improvement as little disjointed the service was probably around 4 stars. Waiters need... More

Our family have been going to Michels for the last 8 years as the food is always good with good service until now. Went there on 20 Feb for my wife's birthday, food was good but service was incompetent, first round of drinks came out fairly quickly then after that it was like we weren't even there. Empty glasses for... More
