Had yellow fin tuna (raw) squid charred on grill (best squid I ever had, but don't match it with a white, choose a light red as the char is pronounced) And fish of day (whiting on grill). Everything was spectacular, way beyond my expectations. Dessert was lemon soufflé. Also fabulous. Matched with coconut ice cream, crispy coconut debris, wow! Thenriesling... More

Meat focused menu - raw, offal steak, unusual cocktails. Shared tables means that the solo traveller could never feel alone in this place. I loved the steak tartare, the pork belly was too big for one. I tried the dark and stormy cocktail, liked it although ginger ale dominated the taste of it. Really liked the bread. Hipster waiters, friendly... More

I was a little hesitant to come here looking at the menu which sounded somewhat pretentious in the odd combinations of food. BUT we tried it anyway for a special occasion and were very pleasantly surprised. I wasn't very hungry for lunch, so had the "small plate" Quinoa/Lentil salad - actually rather 'big' and very filling and tasty with the... More

I have been waiting to dine here for a while and it was well worth it! Service to begin with was very slow which is my only complaint. But was improved once we were able to get attention of our waitress. We ordered the tasting menu. It was a lot of food but thankfully we hadn't eaten all day :)... More

Hands down one of the best restaurants I've been to in Australia. This restaurant uses local produce and highlights fresh food which is in season at the time. Everyone around us seemed to be enjoying the food and so much to choose from! Highly recommend to go with a larger group (at least 3+) so that you can try everything... More

Fresh food, great choice (limited vegetarian though), attentive service and excellent wine list. Snapper with crispy kale, pear salad and perfectly cooked eye fillet - we loved it!

After reading the reviews, we went on a Friday night without a reservation. Good to be early, the place packs out quickly. Food was really interesting with flavours and ingredients being thoughtfully prepared and presented. Vegetarian options were really good. Nice to see a team giving vegetarian food a real sizzle - good enough for omnivores as well. We had... More

Dined with my husband for a late Saturday lunch. We shared beef tartar, quail salad, pork belly and the caramel dessert with pear ice cream with a beautiful bottle of Portuguese red. Every dish was faultless, fresh, delicious, each element worked on the plate and complemented each other. Waitresses were good too and had product knowledge (I'm gluten free and... More

Attended with a group of friends and experienced a lovely range of food well presented and well served by friendly staff in a great atmosphere. I didn't see the menu and my meal was paid for by someone else so I cannot comment on value.

Amazing restaurant. The space is incredible.... the space is very funky and was very busy both upstairs and downstairs but the atmosphere was fantastic. We did the $68 tasting menu for dinner which was about 8 courses. The food was out of this world. The tuna sashimi is something that I will rave about for a long time... the flavour... More
