I dined hear last night with two other friends. This restaurant is right in the heart of a good Melbourne restaurant area. The establishment is not large by any means, but certainly is comfortable and a tolerable noise level.
The wine list is satisfactory and will please most palates.
Overall impression was that the service was a little slow and the service staff needed to be followed up to ensure what was requested was delivered in a timely fashion.
I enjoyed mussels for an entree, and they were enjoyable. Sadly, the mussel meat in several instances was small, to say the least. Nevertheless, this is not to detract from the overall enjoyment of the dish.
I followed this up with a veal main course. Very enjoyable, was finished with an green olive-based sauce which turned it into a delicious meal. We accompany their minds with roast potatoes with a sprinkling of rosemary. In my particular case, these complemented my veal perfectly. My two companions enjoyed the spaghetti and meatballs. And did enjoy them.
The deserts were very good indeed, I chose a chocolate pudding which was cooked perfectly and was accompanied by a ginger-based chocolate ice cream. Nothing to complain about there.
Prices charged were pretty much in line with a reasonably good restaurant today. They certainly weren't cheap and at $120 per head, including a very nice bottle of Shiraz, we went away quite happy.
Overall impression was very favourable, only criticism being the wait staff needing an occasional reminder.
Very suitable for business lunches and dinners and also for couples wishing some nice food.
Most importantly, I certainly will return there.
