“A fabulous culinary experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

This place was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. Exceptional food, well presented. Good service, in spite of being very busy - clearly one of the "hot" places in Melbourne these days. Expensive but worth it!

“Fantastic food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

We went here on the spur of the moment for a celebration mid-week and it was wonderful. They don't take reservations so we had to wait about 5 minutes but that's only because it was 6pm but the place was really busy with a noisy happy atmosphere. We sat at the bar and we watched the staff preparing food and chatted to some of the chefs who were great. They were all really easy-going and looked like they were all having a good time! We shared some small dishes of charcuterie (the anchovies were simply superb). We will definitely be going back, likely for the slow-cooked lamb shoulder which the couple next to us raved about and it looked divine.

Seated at the bar watching the calm efficiency of the kitchen staff, perfectly cooked eggs, sous vide, sardines on toast with a twist - so good bought the cookbook

“Sensational!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Went there for dinner and loved it! Sat on the bar as the place was packed and found the food absolutely fantastic! Tuna and Wagu beef were the highlights, topped off with great wine and cocktails. We will be back!
