“Good oysters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

We dined here unexpectedly after just arriving in Sydney from US. We had a party of 11 but were seated promptly.

The oysters, prosciutto appetizer and pasta appetizer were excellent. Great wine menu too.

A few of us had the salmon for our Main course. The salmon was cooked perfectly however none of us like the black topping on the salmon. The rest of the group ordered steaks. We had mixed reviews. Two in our party had the ribeye steak but they were not consistent in size. One was thinner than the other steak. We also ordered t-bones and filets which were good.

We had salads with our meals which were very light on the dressing. We asked for more dressing and the salads were perfect.

The waitress seemed overwhelmed with our table. At first she was friendly but by the middle of the meal she was not and it almost felt like we were bothering her when we asked for things. She did receive help from the gentleman who originally sat us. He was helpful, patient and pleasant with us the entire time. He actually even said good bye to us when his shift ended.

If we were in town again I would return for the food. Perhaps the waitress was overwhelmed and just got in a bad mood. We were a big party however we ordered a ton of food, bottles of wine, cocktails, beer and after dinner drinks. Expensive bill and the waitresses' tip could have been more but we just tipped the minimum due to the way we felt half way through the service until the end of our visit.

“Meat heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The churrasco is a real treat if you're a meat lover - the waiters bring you succulent spit roasted meats on skewers until you feel like you can't take anymore! The atmosphere is amazing, it's always busy - and the service is excellent despite this. My mouth is watering just thinking of their food - I must go again very soon!

“Great place for a company evening meal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We had 40 of us in an upstairs room - the view was stunning, the food was beauitful tasting and presented - the staff were good. Just glad I wasn't paying but a really good night out.
I had crab as a starter and a perfectly cooked steak but the dessert was just ...wow!

“Exceptional food & service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I loved this restaurant, it has a fantastic ambience, lovely staff & a great food & drinks menu. Of course it's pricey, but you wouldn't go there if you want a budget meal. We went as a group of 6, we nearly all had a steak, so we all ordered a different side & shared. My partner & I shared a dozen oysters for entree, which were absolutely Devine! I will be going back, it was exceptional!
