This restaurant has it all. Recommend it for a special occasion, as not as relaxed and funky as Sushi E (downstairs) for everyday dining, but great atmosphere for romantic dinner for two. Service was excellent and wine recommendation superb.

A beautiful dining room, relaxed and knowledgeable service staff, but most of all beautifully presented dishes. The four course set price lunch was expensive but good value for the quality of food, every dish was a winner!

Next door to MacDonalds but don't let that put you off!

You enter the ground floor and go up to first floor where it is in to another world. Beautifully decorated, comfortable seating and most importantly the staff are not at all snooty which can sometimes happen when they can afford to be complacent. The food was impeccable. The Maitre D' was very welcoming, advising us also where to eat in Sydney! he was not wrong. Our waiter was a lovely young guy too. The food was delicious, especially the fish. The dessert? Mouth watering! Would definitely recommend.

Coming from London where we are spoiled for choice , we were not disappointed.

Always consistently good, Very refined dishes and best taken as a part of the 3 course deal. It was truffle season and it was worth the surcharge for the pasta dish. I love this place
