We were bowled over by the food, service and ambience of this hidden gem. Yes it is expensive, but I feel that it is real value for money with exquisite dishes, fine wines and staff who really know their stuff. Incidentally there were plenty of staff too, so no hanging around for more water or whatever. Remember that the bread portion is huge and tempting tho it is to nibble on all of it before the entrees there is a lot of really yummy food to come!

We enjoyed our evening immensely. The food is beautifully presented, innovative with good sized portions. The service is excellent, could not find fault with a thing.

We took a group of clients here for dinner and booked the private dining room which was really perfect for our group of 14. The service was very good with the wait staff being attentive, friendly and knowledgable about the menu and wine list. This is somewhere I would recommend if you enjoy innovate modern food that tastes amazing and well matched wines. I can't wait to go back with my better half.

Paid $95 for rabbit, octopus, 2 sml beers, 1 bubbly. Rabbit was a sausage, octopus was 5 thin slices. Service was surly. Asked if we wanted "bread and butter" as if we were at the pub up the road. Was it extra? no idea as not on menu, and no explanation forthcoming, so we said no. Big mistake as some bread would have filled a hole that the $45 mains had no hope of filling. The place itself is lovely and the expectations are high at first, but let down badly on tiny portions, and overpriced food. Found out at the end the octopus was actually an entre as the waitress assumed "we didnt look that hungry". We were rather speechless at that. The octopus that was listed as the main, apparently was a changing "fish of the day". But I guess you have to be a mind reader as it was never explained to us. Hubby went to the Nepalese across the road after, as he was still hungry.
We eat at restaurants far and wide, and are a bit mystified by the comments on this blog. Nothing we had tonight, except my glass of bubbly which was lovely, was worth any more than a very average ok.

Food is delicious. Bread is divine. Service is excellent and there is an interesting wine list. I have been there for both lunch and dinner a number of times and it has always been a good experience. It is a bit expensive but then you get what you pay for...
