My wife and son still jet-lagged I went alone for dinner. The restaurant is in some sort of half-dark area, in the perifery of the city and close to the highway. Even if the restaurant was almost empty they tried to fit me in the tiniest table in some sort of passage used to carry the food and going to... More

Purchased a 6 course degustation menu from Grab One for husband's birthday surprise. A delightful way to spend an evening. Our favourite was the smoked salmon on avocado salad with a close second being the rich but not too sweet chocolate with vanilla bean ice cream.

I have just had a fantastic dinner at this resturant. I suffer from alot of food allergies and the staff here were so understanding and helpful. This meant I got a 5 star dinning experince but was able to enjoy it without the worry of being ill. Great resturant for anyone to enjoy

We decided to go to this restaurant as a treat for a friend's birthday as we wanted somewhere flash. The food was absolutely lovely and the service was great. The place was full which in itself tells you something.

The reason I am writing this review is that I would go here more often if they would change the menu occasionally. It gets za but boring having the same thing... More

Food was very bland bar the onion tart which was actually quite nice. The mushroom risotto had very little flavor and needed seasoning, it tasted as if it wasn't cooked in very flavorful stock a must for a risotto it kind if tasted like nothing. My partners "crispy" chicken breast was anything but crispy, if you advertise crispy you should... More
