I visited the restaurant with my husband and his parents. The waiter was very friendly and tentative and Everyone really enjoyed their meals. The portions were large but I still managed to clear the plate! I recommend the prawn and scallop risotto. Perfectly cooked and full of flavour but as I said everyone's food looked delicious. I will return.

Small restaurant with big service and quality. Food was tasty and affordable. Good for small gatherings or couples on special occasions or quiet night out.

We dined here as a special dinner and were not disappointed. The food was divine & divinely different . The combination of flavors in the berry sauce over the slivers of tender Veal on mash, with greens was the perfect meal to follow the Duck Spring Rolls - a favorite of mine . Hubby's Fillet Mignon was tender & flavorsome... More

Breakfast next to the Regis hotel. Easy to have a quick breakfast. "A la carte" menu with rates between 12-20$ I had an omelet with bacon , some vegetables , cheese and a latte. Omelet was nice , a bit watery, but good to start the day. He also included a slide of toast which was not mentioned on the... More

I scored this restaurant as "average" but it's slightly better. Service was friendly although maybe a little inexperienced. Food range was good and the quality was "ok". Don't expect more. I had Bruschetta for starters and it looked nice but the toast was too hard and dry. The location is a little out of the way for Palmer Street. The... More

Really enjoyed our dinner here. The food was delicious & the staff were very friendly. Great range of options. The wait was a bit long & the price was a bit high but still a great night. Would recommend for a fine dining experience.

We had dinner here on a Saturday night. While it was a busy night there were a few empty tables and enough staff. We waited for menus, drinks and meals took a long time to come out. Entrees were small for price, mains were large.
