“Atmosphere and quality”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Food was good, service was excellent, staff knowledgeable and helpful with advice regarding the Menu. Great atmosphere, a bit noisy, but that added to the vibrancy. Excellent wine list, serves were generous and well presented. On the whole, a very tasty enjoyable dining experience, would definitely return.

“Great wine and food with bundles of energy”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

As other reviewers noted, it's noisy but bursting with energy. Food was well presented, tasty and of a good size. Wine menu had a wide selection which was easily navigated with some advice from the friendly waitress. Will definitely recommend and definitely return as this was a gem of a find.
Not for the romantics though - just a bit too busy.

“excellent restaurant superb food and service”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Luckily my hotel made a booking for me, because the restaurant was packed and many people were turned away at the door, and no wonder because they were busy for the best reason, good food and service. I experienced the best service in a restaurant for a long time which is quite remarkable considering how busy they were. I had a couple of oysters with blood orange granita, sardines [out of my comfort zone but really good] then lamb three ways with potato gnocchi and spinach. For dessert I had the petite fours and coffee each one was exquisite. Oh and not to forget their bread, I could have just enjoyed the wine and the bread and been content. My waiter was German, in a French restaurant, very knowledgeable and hard working. Great great restaurant, that i'll be back to next trip to Melbourne.
