The food was average, however the service was terrible! The staff were all over the place despite it being nearly empty. Maybe it's just me, but I would expect a waiter to be able to pour wine properly when I'm paying $150 per head. The cheese platter was exceedingly average- the sort of cheese you can pick up from Coles... More

Great dining experience. As there was a group of us we decided to have a cross selection of most of the entrees, great conversation starter and great food. The staff were most helpfully in our selections especially with some of the dietary requirement, thank you. Breakfast as usual always a great way to start the day and if looking for... More

The meal I received on was nothing short of world class. Each course uniquely presented and constructed. Service, including a visit from one of the chefs (nice touch) was lovely with attentiveness and interest. It was obvious that there is a sucessful team here that shows their passion for the food. Please find the time to try the Degustation menu.... More

The food, the service, amazing! There is no other way to describe this restaurant. My partner and I make a real effort to come here. This is where we treat ourselves. It never ceases to impress. 3rd visit, fantastic. All I can say is that it seems like, in my opinion, the negative reviews come from people that do not... More

We were a party of six. On our last evening at Arlie Beach we wanted a special dinner, and so it was! We had a six course dinner with wine pack. Every dish was like an art, and the taste! Topper by the best dessert ever, the Sticky date cake! We'll worth every dollar spent!

I have been looking forward to coming back to this restaurant and for good reason, it is absolutely stunning. My husband and I had the salmon and tuna entrees, gorgeous! I had the chicken for my main, and would not hesitate to say it was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. My husband had the steamed fish... More
