“Would be a bit noisy if it was busy, but the service was good and the food lovely. Will be back.”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

We had often looked at this place but never eaten there before. It was a Monday night so not busy. Our fish was beautifully cooked and the dish light and fresh. One of the nicest meals I had in Melbourne - I enjoyed it much more than Flower Drum!! Would definitely go back.

“Great venue and beers”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

The Christmas beer was a great start to our night, and adding the "dining tour" of Melbourne into the event, this was a great location to start at. The entree's were superb and the various slection of wines, the staff details were specific on each item we drank and ate, which started our night off great cheers.

“good wine but just a bit too expensive and gimmicky”
Reviewed May 6, 2011

please please please if you are a good restaurant or bar you do not need to drop the decimals out of your prices. it looks provincial and silly and gimmicky and for me always flags a place that needs to add silly gimmicks because it isnt good enough on its own.
good service of nice wine and food should come naturally and not with huge expense or pretention. this place would not succeed anywhere else in the western world as it is expected that service will be good. it isnt a bad place just overpriced.

“Good for lunch and even a drink”
Reviewed May 20, 2010

I have been here a couple of times for business lunches and always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Even if you don't want to eat here the bar is pretty good to have a drink at. Cool bar/restaurant, tucked away and I recommend trying this place.

“A wine list and fusion food from a new chef beyond our expectations.”
Reviewed January 29, 2010

Not easy to find in Melbourne's CBD off Flinders Lane between Elizabeth and Queen Streets. Tried both the degustation menu and the superb and imaginative full dinner menu. Among the stand outs were the caulifower mousse and the rose jelly with violet impregnated sponge.Strongly recommended
