This is an excellent venue for small plates. Its cuisine is innovative and eclectic. The only negatives were the service which, while good , was not particularly engaged or warm and the frenetic modern jazz which detracted from the experience.

Parking can be tricky - so allow a few extra minutes. Bowens Wharf has a small paid lot, there is another paid lot close by in front of the Mooring restaurant or street parking (meters take credit cards)
