I have been here before and couldn't wait to go back with a friend from interstate. Wow! Thank you so much. It's terrible when you talk up a restaurant and then they don't deliver. Well not the case here. They were even better than I had previously expressed. We were waited on by the most bubbly, helpful, friendly waiter. Thank... More

After recommendation from a friend we went here on an extremely busy night but still managed to get amazing service and great food. The key point for us during the night was just how friendly and attentive the staff were. If our water was running low they instantly came over to top it up, they checked in on our meals... More

Was told this place serves fabulous steak but was quite disappointed as we had better steak at the Tokar Wine Estate in Yarra Valley. But not knowing where else to go in the CBD, this place would have to do. Pricier than the other restaurant we went to. And nothing special in terms of decor and ambiance. Food was just... More

We had to wait 15 mins for a table as we didn't have a reservation but it was a pleasant wait by the bar. The service was fast and efficient n most importantly, the good (especially the steaks) were great! It was good value for money for the quality of steaks we had. Will definitely recommend to meat lovers.

I ate in this restaurant last week with a couple of friends. It looks as a very nice place but at the end of my dinner I was doubtful. I ordered a meat mix (one beef rump and half of ribs) with chimichurri souce and just a seasonal vegetable as contour. I love red meat so I had great expectations... More

Steak, steak and more steak. If you love a fine steak and good wine....then this is the place for you. We didn't have a booking but were happy to wait at the bar and staff came and got us when table was ready. Great location overlooking the river at Southbank. Staff service was great also.

Looking for a romantic light meal this is the place to go. They serve an array of meats and great wine. The wine selection is particular good they must have someone who really knows there wines as I was very impressed.

Went there recently for dinner and let let me say, my steak was the best steak I ate in Australia. The calamari was so perfectly cooked until I found a thick black hair in it. These things happen but still put me off. The tongs they gave us still had a price tag sticker on it. Really? At a place... More

The place itself is very well located and with a somewhat ethnic decoration. The staff amazingly friendly and professional. The price of the main course itself is not that high in comparison with other places and the meat is delicious.... delicious!!!! Advisable to make reservation in advance. Definitely a must go!!!

Thank SandraIDias
