“A touch of Europe in Carlton.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

Dinner Saturday night with friends.Beautiful restaraunt in a magnificent terrace house. Massive ceilings,huge wooden doors,mix match crockery,wooden tables.
Excellent service.We were sitting near the entrance so we had the benefit of one of the owners at the door. Complimentary aperitif when drinks took a little long to arrive,extra complimentary sides..all those extra touches that make a dining experience special.
The food is varied.. a little italian,english,greek etc. but all delicious. We had a salumi platter, grilled prawns,arancini..you get the picture. Superb desserts which are all brought to your table to choose.
If you are into cheese there is a large selection..I just couldn't fit it in. The rib eye on the bone was perfect ,chargrilled broccoli, mash,cauliflower puree. All delicious.
Need to book well in advance. This place is popular for good reason!

“Stunning food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

30 of us booked the upstairs private dinning room for a company function. Lovely room with French doors out to a great balcony, though a bit chilly out there on a May evening. The tasting plates were wonderful, you got to try foods you may not have normally ordered. Very attentive service, but without being in your face. The beef was cooked so that it was rare in the middle and medium at the ends so catered for most tastes and beautiful and tender. We had one strict vegetarian (this requirement had not been mentioned at the time of the booking) and with no notice the chef prepared a couple of dishes the guest was more than delighted with. Only disappointing feature was with 30 people it was very noisy. This however is a feature for the majority of restaurants. May have been different in the main restaurant downstairs, but can't comment as we were the last to leave.
