Moda has a delicious a la carte menu, or one can elect to have Javier's Table, where the highly skilled Javier produces a three course menu from the freshest produce he has sourced at the markets that day. We have experienced both styles of dining and it is fabulous. Our most recent dinner (last night) was absolutely superb. Starting with... More

Decided to book based on an email received. Had no real expectations and was going to cancel - so glad i did not. My tastebuds are thanking me for a wonderful dinner. I enjoyed the indoor outdoor feel of the place, private tables, great food suggestions by the waiter. We had the rustic degustation selection. A wonderful surprise and not... More

Location opposite hotel, so very handy and not to far to walk after some drinks. But like many restaurants on this special night, the menu was limited and very very expensive.

This place is so amazing, 3 years ago we married there and today we decided to return for our anniversary dinner. we enjoyed the service, food, and wine. We had Chicken Croquettes, the duck, chicken risotto and the peach pana cotta dessert. The wine was amazing, from Spain , we would highly recommend.

We had a large group last year for State of Origin and Moda put on a great display for us. Yes was a bit pricey but they were more than accommodating even though we drank the bar dry having a large amount of guests they went out mid service to obtain more alcohol. Awesome service and staff

Although the food was tasty and delivered efficiently, it really is not worth the price. Apart from the head waiter, the others were clueless, unable to understand basic requests. All in all, very average.

What a gem in the middle of the city. We has the chefs menu and all the 10 different thing we tasted were really tasty. The service was excellent and the restaurant is cosy hideaway.

Had a set menu for a conference of a 100 people. Food was delicious and service excellent. Roast duck, rabbit pies, scallops, salmon, a raw fish dish, and dessert. If anything the desserts were not as exciting but still delicious. A young Asian waitreds was extremely efficient and remembered to replace my iced water regularly without being asked-very impressed.

Yes I have been here before, but this time I wanted to try my own picks from the menu rather than the chefs selection. I believe we tried (mostly) different things but I have to say after the first time it was hard to turn down some of those entrees. So it begins... For Entrée, we chose to share (with... More
