This is consistently our favourite restaurant and a place where we are always delighted to take friends. We took four business colleagues recently and they were delighted not least with the excellent wine selection.

Had 2 courses for $35. Zucchini (and cheese?) as entree and fried swordfish as main. Both were excellent! Definitely will go there again.

We attended a degustation dinner where each course was matched with one or two Pimpernel wines. Each course was delicious and was well matched with the wines, which included Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz Viognier and Shiraz Marsanne.

My understanding is that Centonove will allow people to bring special wines by prior arrangement . Equally it is worth looking at their stunning wine list which would be hard to beat.
