“top notch food and great venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a fantastic restaurant, amazing food - the five course menu where you choose a starter, main and desert and they add in two small courses was superb - I had a lovely goats cheese ravioli, followed by beautifully cooked salmon and sticky date pudding. The waitresses were fantastic, attentive but discreet and the venue is great - a nice bar and then a lovely cosy intimate but plush dining room - unlike some restaurants with wooden floors and painted walls where the noise bounces round the room and it's very loud, this had carpets and soft covered walls so you could actually hear you dinner companion, but not so close to other tables that you could hear them. I'd definitely recommend it for a special occasion and we'll be going back!

“A Lasting Impression”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

A fantastic evening spent with family and friends to celebrate a special birthday. We chose from the menu the 5 course "Your Choice" at $70 per person and were absolutely amazed at the fantastic quality and presentation of our meals. The front bar area and the exquisite fine dining area are a credit to the owners. This is a must see and enjoy experience.

“Intimate dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

I have eaten here twice and great food both times and fantastic service. Dining area is very intimate even when full. The meals were yummy. But be aware that you will need 3 courses to fill up or lots of extra sides. But it does mean you can really focus of the flavours and textures.
Great place to go if you want to dress up for a night out.

“Brilliant group dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Our business group of Directors and wives dined here recently and enjoyed the 5 course degustation for 85$ . For the quality of the food and the service this was good value. We had a great table of 12 with everyone picking something great worth commenting on. Nice to have a drink at the bar and watch the cooking school finish up then heading into the formal dining part. We had to dine at 830 as it was pretty busy but by then our appetites had really kicked in.
I can't wait to go back, acyually I've booked already.
