Even though the food might be worth money the service isn't. I think this restaurant needs to learn the hard way that customer should be respected.

Would not recommend this place to anyone.

Nice venue but really, really bad experience in every other way. Honestly they haven't got a clue. We could have just been unlucky on the night of course.

Very bad experience. The hostess was surly and did nothing to make us feel welcome. Entrees took 35-40 minutes to appear after ordering, Two dollar-size scallops for $15 = Highway robbery. Mains did not appear for 75 minutes after ordering, which was puzzling since there were only 5 or 6 other guests in the restaurant. Between us we ordered 4 mains. The $26 lime and coconut rissoto had no taste of lime nor coconut, and came with a total of 3(!!!) prawns. The prime rib for 2 ($65) was tough and not cooked to medium rare as requested. To add insult to injury, it was accompanied by 2 very small pots of mash and a very few limp and tasteless grilled vegetables. The lamb ragu had some very strange sauce that clashed with the taste of the lamb. Not wishing to risk anymore threats to our taste buds or wallet, we quickly left before the waitress offered desert. An overall grim experience,

Owner very tentative and attention to detail. Food excellent and staff friendly. Great location for breakfast or afternoon drinks/ snacks. Sometimes open for dinner - but can be booked out for special functions.
