What more can I add to what's already been said? You don't go here for an intimate dinner -- more an "I wonder if I'll overhear something interesting from the next table" experience. The service is attentive without being obtrusive, and the food is simply superb. I thought my tuna sashimi and pan roasted gurnard (with an excellent squid ink risotto) couldn't be topped -- until the dessert arrived. Simply put, quite possibly the best chocolate mousse I have ever eaten. I'd recommend that anyone in Wellington find the opportunity for a meal here.
