This is truly top Australian restaurant, fully deserving its rating...it should be 3 Hat!
A group of 7 had the 6 course degusrtaion menu with matching wines for a 40th bithday function and everone was delighted with the food, service, ambience and value for money. Each course was superb...in particular the ravioli of potato with black truffle, the oven rosted suckling pig, and the Sardinian pastry with ricotta and warm honey were all memorable. Sardinian wine was a new experience...somewhat hesitant at first, but the somellier was very patient and we loved every selection...a new pleasurable experience. We had the opltional 7th course of roasted Peretta cheese and honey...not to be missed!!!

My girlfriend and I had the tasting menu and all I can say is WOW!! It was an amazing journey to Sardinia and the accompanying wines were delicious.

Particular highlights were the ravioli, king fish and suckling pig - I think the king fish won on points though.

The staff were also excellent and very friendly and loved the location - we were lucky enough to get a seat on the verandah and the view was very nice.

Price for degustation and wine course was $165pp

Pilu could only give us a 2.30 seating. Bit late for Sunday lunch but the enthusiasm of our concierge swayed us. In the end we had to call them to say we could only get there by 3.00 but did not arrive till 3.30.
We were atbthe end of their busy day but they were quick to check with the kitchen and assured us that we would be served and could take our time. All the window tables were taken but when one cleared, we were asked if we would prefer that. Great start. Fantastic views.
Food was generally good. Satisfyingly light yet tasty, portions were just right and we had a very easy and enjoyable afternoon.

Would we return? Probably. But not with the same enthusiasm as our concierge!

The only thing over shadowing the degustation menu was the stunning views! The wine list was extensive in fact one of the most comprehenive Italian wine collection outside Italy. It was a great to be guided through their wines and try someting different but exciting.
The only slight comment is the restaurant was very noisy, so this is better as a group location rather than a romantic dining experience.

From food to customer service to ambience this place is just amazing. My wife and I like to come here every so often when we would like to have an above average meal/experience.
