We went here as a group of 4 for dinner on a Friday night. The restaurant was full & very buzzy. The food excellent. Everyone had seafood & we were all very happy. No one managed to have dessert so I cannot comment there. The service was very good. One of the group was on crutches & the staff were very helpful with access up the ramp which became very slippery after the kitchen had been cleaned.

This restaurant is well frequented by Sydney locals which is a recommendation in itself. Pretty spot at night with view over the water to lights at Darling Harbour. Ask for a seat facing the water as they could do with a mirror wall for those sitting with their backs to the view. Fresh seafood, well-presented, good wines in a lovely location. Parking is a problem so get a cab or enjoy the short walk from the Sydney Tram Station at Glebe to/from the restaurant.

The view over the water is lovely and every meal we have had has been beautiful. The service is among the best in Sydney.
