“Better than first class”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Went there last night...what an experience ....from the moment we walked in the door, service par excellence in everything they said and did...

Food would have to be one of the best we have had in a long time..plus the wine list was superb....This would compare with the best in Europe...

A first class experience.....in everyway.


Well done

“Food Like Never Before”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

First time for us to eat in a Two Hat Restaurant and it was so worth it. The menu of three courses for $98 was great value and they was quite a lot of items to pick from in each course. The restaurant looks amazing and will very romantic. Would be a great place to take your girlfriend to propose. Every piece of food we ate melted in your mouth and was so great to eat as it was an experience.

“A wonderfully romantic dinner with exceptional service.”
Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

We have tried some of the chef hat Hugh end restaurants of the Coast but found this one to be the very best. Food was outstanding and the restaurant was typically Versace- outstanding quality and attention to detail. With wines and food ( shared dessert) there's not much change from $300 however it is truly wonderful.

“Wow”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I took my husband for an early Valentines treat. The staff were very welcoming, professional and knowledgeable. The food was very impressive, particularly the wagyu for two.
With an extensive wine list and mouth watering desserts, you couldn't ask for more.
