“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Ate here with my wife and two friends last night after visiting MONA ((amazing!). Wife and I had the duck confit and friends both had the venison and pork risotto. Finished with pear crumble and house made ice cream. All were excellent and well priced. Service was super and the young lady looking after us certainly earned her generous tip. Would be back in a flash.

“Suave place. (as long as you aren't looking for a proper meal)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

This place is very impressive from the outset.
Location wise this place is very tidy.
Right amongst cafes clubs and bars.
I will admit I found the menu disappointing but i was quite hungry and was really looking for a solid steak or chicken dish. What i was faced with were some fancy dishes that would have served more as a rich and exotic tapas type menu. I do recall they had a good wine selection but i also recall it was as pricey as the menu.
Great place to take someone you are looking to impress. Just best to grab a bite to eat first.

“Not what we hoped!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

We had read lots of reviews and so I dragged extended family here for breakfast and was a little disappointed . All our poached eggs were hard and the coffee only warm and once we placed our initial order it was hard to to get any service . Our waitress was lovely but struggled with having too many to serve . As there is so many restaurants around I suggest trying elsewhere if they are busy

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Been several times to this place and the food is always brilliant. Service is sweet if a little young and inexperienced- some of our side dishes were forgotten because they don't write orders down... Other than that- great place.
