“Culinary Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Fantastic dishes that were contemporary without being fussy. Service to match. Every detail was refined and delicious. Can't wait to get back again. Great atmosphere as well. Lots of wonderful food in the region, but this is highlight.

“One of the best of its type”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

One of the best restaurants of its type we have eaten at. The little hors d'oeuvres and amuse-bouches were a lovely touch, and every course was just amazing. All recommended.

“Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Seriously - as a Coeliac and a vegetarian, I'm aware I am a chefs worse nightmare, yet I had THE best dining experience ever in March 2013. Service was exceptional, the wait staff knowledgable, descreet, approachable - the decor was impeccable - in short I wish I wasn't 2,000klms away as I'd dine at The Argus all the time. Bravo to the team, each and every one of you, our group (and especially me) walked away from The Argus in awe of an amazing dining experience - Thank you

“Exquisite meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

The menu camouflaged the exquisite flavours and presentation. Our knowledgeable waiter explained each dish to us. Each dish was a story in itself! Our group of 8 was well attended with friendly service. The food was fabulous, with each component delivering a taste and texture experience. Highly recommended.

“Amazingly good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

This is a sensational restaurant. The food was superb, the service exceptional and the wine well matched.

I strongly recommend the wagu beef, the duck and the coconut dessert.

We loved it.
