Almost empty to the point of creepy

Must have been the off season, but being in a large room with lots of empty tables can be off-putting in its own right. May have impacted perception of how good the dinner was or in our case, wasn't. Could have probably benefited from a pared down menu for just a few customers.

This fine dining experience is good. Although compared to fine dining in Melbourne it really doesn't meet the standard I would expect for the prices in comparison to other places. The view is fantastic so worth going for lunch rather than dinner in the dark.

This isn't the easiest restaurant to get to, so I was expecting it to be worth it. The location is truly stunning with fantastic views over Bass Strait. The new restaurant (the previous one burnt down) is very minimalist with neutral bare walls, light wood furniture and concealed lighting. For me, it was a bit too stark. The lit fire... More
