The restaurant was a bit small, noisy and the setting had no particular ambiance to it which was a bit disappointing for its 'raving status'. Staff was effective but I wouldn't say they posed any more than standard level of service.
We ordered degustation which was quite nice but I would've expected more out of a chef's hat restaurant. It was nice, but definitely not worth the price and not worth the experience.
They had turned on the air con during our meal so we asked them to turn it down because we were getting very cold. Then a lady used a padded stick to push the vent away from us - at this time, I saw how dusty the vent was, I feel sorry for the table underneath it, just imaging how much dusty just went onto their places.
Overall, disappointed at the meal and atmosphere. Was expecting a bit more attention to the food and quality of service. But seriously not worth it.

It's not always one can recommend a restaurant in Sydney, but this is one of the best meals I have had in 10 years - French influence too, which Sydney lacks. Staff most attentive and very pleasing atmosphere with white tablecloths. Congratulations to staff who cooked many beautiful dishes

We had looked forward to this meal and booked it before leaving NZ. The Kiwi owner and staff were aloof and gave poor unfriendly service. It was expensive and very disappointing. Sydney has much better ti offer!

Small-ish restaurant with a warm cosy feel, without being overly noisy. Very good food, very well prepared. Service is attentive without being fussy. Menu seems to have changed since we visited a few days ago, so must change on a regular basis.

Food is presented in a nouvelle style, if that term isn't outdated now, so don't expect large cuts done simply. Take a look at the website menu for the general idea.
