My fourth time here. It was a Sunday Lunch and we were the first in and the last to leave. Food was great as always. No problem with service. A bit pricey but worth it. Much quieter on a Sunday lunchtime as it can be very busy in the week.

Loved the ability to have lots of little plates to share. The tacos were divine, and the tempura oysters moorish. Looked after attentively without being intrusive.

Just LOVE this place. Warning, it's not cheap, but you get what you pay for (expect $125/pp + as a minimum). The fish is extremely fresh, the presentation is great, and I have yet to have a server who was not extremely personable and knowledgable.

To give some perspective on how much I believe in this place: I took the CEO of my company visiting from the US on the last trip. A rock solid choice ... you can't go wrong.

We were looking for somewhere close to Circular Quay that served great food and was not too 'touristy' on a big rugby weekend in Sydney. First impressions when we rang to book were great - and I was asked if we were celebrating a special occasion.
Our total experience was fantastic - and our group of 3 included a vegetarian, a pescetarian and a carnivore; 2 drinkers and a non- drinker. Each of our menu choices was perfect. We thought we were full but the steamed blue cod convinced us we could keep going! The wine list is comprehensive and the Petaluma Reisling complemented our meal perfectly.
Great service and atmosphere rounded out the night - we'll definitely be back!
