Dined here last night. Can't say I could fault anything but some dishes can be expensive for what they are. Service was attentive yet not over bearing. Atmosphere was a little loud but manageable. Hard to spot unless you know what your looking for. My suggestion is go and find an excellent venue for dinner be it a couple - as I was- or a big group- as we're there. Excellent.

Our best fine dining experience in Wellington. A bit hard to see off of busy Cuba street but a good find. Knowledgeable servers with great attitudes. The food is memorable. We did the chefs menu and were very pleased with the high quality of the food and the creative compositions.

Eclectic mid century modern decor, moody and lounge-like. The decor doesn't match up with the quality of the food.

My husband and I dropped in here on a whim for a drink before dinner, and so glad we did. Their cocktail list is top notch. The bartender gave us great drink recs from the menu. Restaurant has a great chill vibe. Would definitely recommend for anyone interested in having a quality cocktail!

We read through the interesting cocklist menu (list, does not do it justice) & after speaking to the staff member serving us he influenced me to try something else. Very glad he did, the experience of watching him make these was well worth the price & it was a 5-10minute show. Flames poured between jugs & egg whites are not as scary in a cocktail as first thought.
The service was great, really felt like they enjoyed their job & welcomed customers. Will be back.
