Dined here on a cold Melbourne winters week day. There was only two local businessmen dining here with us and with the room almost empty we found it fairly cold to start with although it did start to warm up later. We chose the lunch special with two courses for $40 per person including a glass of wine. Water was... More

Six of us dined here today for a family lunch. We could not fault the setting, food, service or value. The wait staff were particularly pleasant, indeed the whole experience was one we will return for. Just great!

The menu was not particularly inspiring, the coffee was cold and they were not able to provide a chai latte. The side order was not delivered and the waiter had to be reminded to bring it. It was not a "Melbourne cafe" experience. Disappointed for a special Mother's Day occasion.

I must commend this restaurant. Great food, well cooked. Great service. It's only just a little on the expensive side but I suppose that is what you get for a special occasion type of venue. Recommended for a group dinner. Left full and happy😊

A warm and intimate experience - the service was perfect. We ordered the fish of the day and the duck, along with vegetables and salad. Could not fault the food. I didn't want my our dishes to finish. Along with this, the pinot noir we ordered - went down a treat. Our waiters were just lovely! Made our experience a... More

We had dinner here on Feb. 13. It is a couple of stops on the tram outside of the CBD of Melbourne in Albert Park, and well worth the trip. Drinks were expertly created by the bartender, Matt, who also served as our waiter. (we were told they were missing a staff member that night, but we certainly did not... More
