Yes venue is beautiful. yes staff are attentive although a little impersonal.
However, the food was terrible. I have never been driven to review a restaurant before however I could not reconcile the glowing reviews I read about the food here and the food that arrived on our plate and feel the need to warn others before they waste their money. Perhaps there was a very very junior chef on last night.
The asparagus starter I had tasted only of salt, could not see the quinoa anywhere. the apsaragus was over cooked. My kingfish main - the fish tasted old. the cucumber was over-pickled and oversweet. no other real flavour. my partner had the pork entree and the look of disappointment at the first mouthful of his birthday dinner I won't forget for a long time. the pork crackling was old and chewy. the pork was tasteless. He had the duck for the main, one part was undercooked and chewy, the leg was stewed.
We had two drinks each and this cost nearly $180. completely over-priced. Don't know how they got such good reviews.
Very very disappointing and won't be going there again to see if last night was an aberration.
