Love the ambience, thought the dining area was quite impressive, it's simple & clean and yet show some elegance in my opinion. We were greeted by all the servers with a smile when we entered the venue, which is a great start :) Then it's...time for the entree to be served. I ordered Smoked scallop, however the fishy smells was too strong and i think it could be better if it was served warmer. The dish tasted a bit bland despite a strong fishy smells. Moving on to the main dish, I ordered Chargrilled Sirloin (medium rare). It was tasty, a bit tough to chew but i still love it! But i have to give a credit to the girl who served us. I'm impressed! thumbs up to her!More

Wine knowledge needed some work, red wine with main course took awhile to appear, service was patchy, entree was love, main course (steak) was dry and the mushroom sauce was a bit salty needed to be taken back a couple of notches with some stock

Is a training restuarant for the Hotel School - but nothing lacking in the food - had the 5 course degustation - great attention to detail and flavours - I was close to the kitchen and most interesting to hear the Head Chef training and...passing on knowledge - great value for what was offered - will be back for new season menuMore

This is a " live training school" for hospitality students . The premises are lovely and the location is great. The menu was excellent and the food quality was superb. The service was good and enthusiastically delivered. We'll certainly be back!

We have accessed the semester special (3 courses for $30) before as well as going a la carte. The special is incredibly good value and no diminution of quality in food or service. Highly recommended
