We were initially greeted by Rudi the owner who knew one of the people we were dining with quite well. Rudi as the owner is very out there, but he has the best intentions and he wants to make sure people enjoy themselves and have a laugh. Yes, he can be very full on, but a very nice guy.
My first impression was the wine, AMAZING! The wine list is probably the best I have seen anywhere in Sydney, and you will drink nothing less then 10-15 years old. I have been told that the wine cellar is amazing.
We had some oysters to share which were extremely fresh and beautiful. We took the recommendation of the seafood soup which was hands down the best seafood soup I have ever had. It is obvious that the base of the soup had a lot go into it, and looking at all the ingredients there was a lot of work that went into it.
For the main I had the pork knuckle. Firstly, it was enormous and I had no chance of finishing it. It was beautiful, and I really enjoyed the crackly. It was served wish mash, dried onion rings and a few other items. It all went together, and I would love to go back there again to have this same dish, but without the entree and lunch beforehand!
I am very much looking forward to visiting here again
