Had dinner with friends Very average !!! Salmon had no flavour and so did the beef fillet . When we told the staff they accepted no responsibility and told us they would take it up with their supplier - seriously we eat all over Sydney - never heard this excuse Eva . Avoid

We served you last Saturday night, a table of four. You and your partner shared a main course, the Eye Fillet of Beef. After you had completely finished eating your... More

Once you've eaten here you will go back. Erin and her staff are so welcoming and efficient. Erin's husband Barry is the chef and the menu is modern Australian cuisine. Generous portions, affordable menu. A very relaxed and friendly space. Restaurant is licensed with BYO wine of a night.

Let me start and finish with my only negative comment. - personally I found the tables to be too close together and it felt quite cramped but it didn't spoil my evening. Now to the good stuff. It is BYO for your... More

My sister had arranged a surprise birthday party for her partner with over 30 people attending and the organization was excellent. Erin was wonderful with her ideas and the set up of the tables. The orders were taken before the birthday boy arrived. Everything was extremely efficient. Drinks - wine, water were constantly topped up. The food was superb and... More

Arrived at booking time, seated immediately, friends joined us. We chose BYO wine, was poured instantly, water glasses and chilled water arrived to table minutes later without asking. Water was kept topped up. Entrees ordered (brushetta to share and olives, oil w dukkah and bread). Mains were generous in size (with appropriate vegetables for each different dish! so often meat...
