Once a neighbourhood gem, a change of hands seems to have affected both food & service. The menu online is vastly different to that offered at the table, less dishes and tweaks that won't warrant a return. Whilst sides of salad and wedges now come...More

It was a gorgeous Melbourne summer evening( hasn't been too many) so we chose to have a drink outside. The outdoor space including the tables was in need of a good clean. We had to ask to have the table wiped down. We ate inside....More

Dropped in last night for the first time and were certainly not disappointed. We ate in the bar, both ordered the $20 grass fed porterhouse - cooked to perfection. We both really enjoyed our meals - we will be back
