This restaurant has been on my 'to do' list for some time, and a business trip to Sydney provided the opportunity.
Table for 4, reasonable views of the harbour, but we were not at the window as such.
A very polished and professional young waitress, provided what could only be described as impeccable and unobtrusive service throughout the evening.
Quite an interesting menu, with balanced selection of entrees and main courses. I opted for the oysters and the baked snapper with a dashi reduction. My wife decided on the scallops and the duck (she almost always has duck in a restaurant).
Entrees very good and nicely presented. Duck cooked perfectly and full of flavour with a classic presentation. Snapper, also cooked perfectly, but to be honest uninspiring as a dish (to me). Flavours were ok, presentation also ok. Others in the party had the grilled mulloway, and it appeared to be a better dish. Timing between courses also good.
The Savigny-Les-Beaune was good choice for the food, and reasonably priced at $85.00.
We did not opt for the desert menu.
To summarise, a well executed restaurant, with polished service, fine surroundings (but not lavish), very good food and excellent wine list.
I was not 'wowed' as some other reviewers were on this forum.
Perhaps I was expecting more given the reviews I had read on this forum and elsewhere, and I have certainly been in restaurants in France that were just a cut below Michelin 1 star and been very 'wowed' by the food... for similar or less money.
I've also dined in Michelin 1 and 2 star restaurants in France, and Belgium over a number of years and been really 'wowed' by the food.
I would likely return at some stage to try a different selection from the menu, but not before I try Tetsuya's in Sydney...
