Reviewed September 21, 2012

We had a really excellent lunch here. New chef and so much better than what we had a few months ago. We weren't going to come back but glad we did. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted good.

“Just lovely”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

The seasonal menu is a delight, and they make it so easy with a set price for 2 or 3 courses. The wine list, while not large, is excellent in respect to quality and price.
The food is superb and the service excellent. When I was there we complimented the chef on a quinoa recipe, and she went to the trouble of writing it up and giving a copy to all of us at the table.
And of course, being located right in the middle of the Botanic Gardens you couldn't get a better view.

“tasty food but overpriced”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

very posh, bit over priced for the amount of food that we got - 26 dollars for 3 scallops, regardless the food and service was excellent!

“Menu mixup”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Recently i took 20 guests to the restaurant for beakfast. I booked well in advance and then returned to the restaurant to organise the menu..
Prior to the breakfast i visited the restaurant and rechecked that the menu was correct .
On the morning of the breakfast I was somewhat surprised to see that the menu was not what I had chosen . I saw that some of the things we had agreed on could not be supplied which was a bit of a surprise and they had also got in extra food for the menu we had not requested.The staff were good and redid the menu but it included the prices which was not what i wanted from the start. However the food and service was very good and all enjoyed the morning. Subsequently i wrote a letter to the Manager but i have not received a reply which is a bit disappointing..
