We ate here twice, it was so amazing! First meal was on our 10th wedding anniversary. The service and food was incredible. Our 16 month old came down with a fever that afternoon and was a bit grumpy but the staff was gracious and helped make the meal special. We had the prawn hot pot and pork belly for entree, which were okay and the goldband snapper and tuna for mains and they were so devine!! Two days later we went back for a late lunch and cocktails. We both ordered their seared sesame tuna with wasabi mayonaise and it was incredibly yummy. The cocktails were also fantastic and the staff were lovely. Very highly recommended.

After the debacle at Rasa, we went to. Watergate for a cocktail and ended up eating dinner here.
Wow
Amazing food... Hubby had a delicious pork belly starter with a tasty duck dish. I had the lamb ribs followed by the seafood ravioli.
Service was amazing, bartender was cheeky and knowledgeable.
We have eaten here seven years again and it's great to see the standards haven't changed.

From the moment we were greeted at the door we were treated with such friendly attentiveness. The staff couldn't have been more helpful - especially our waitperson Martha. It's small and private, intimate and relaxed. The bar is so cool and the cocktails are really out of this world. In fact the overall ambience, food and service made us feel really special and created a lovely dining experience.
