Food and service were very good. Even though we requested outside seating or air conditioning with our booking due to a new born with us Table Seating was very poor, in a narrow corridor without air condition or fans and extremely uncomfortable. Otherwise would have been a great experience.

Food was absolutely fantastic
Could not fault the food at all.
Our server was a bit pushy on the fact we had to eat quickly and leave due to the high number of expected customers for the night. Not the greatest feeling knowing you cant enjoy your meals when you have to scoff it down.

A beautiful, classy restaurant with both amazing food and a wonderful atmosphere. Perfect for a special occasion or a quiet date night but also value for money for a meal any time.

This was a very average meal with an expensive price tag. We ordered three drinks on arriving that did not arrive together which is one of my pet hates, the last drink a Moscow mule was 90% ice and took so long to be delivered I thought they had forgotten the order. Coffin bay oysters were dry and tasteless but the desserts saved the day all three being very good. I wouldn’t rush back.

Our waiter was softly spoken and his English was very poor we struggled to hear him . when asking what came with our meals he was very vague I ordered calamari and that's all I got all 8 rings and nothing else for $20 I was expecting it to arrive on a salad or at least some chips ....won't be going back

New Year’s Eve dinner, great food, brilliant service from David our service person, very knowledgeable about the wines.
The French champagne was Devine, only 1 glass brought in specially for new year.1st course I had the heirloom tomatoes well these were perfect, next course had tortellini nice but bit under done, main course was the lamb, perfect & finally desert had strawberry soup which was delicious.
Band playing was very good.

Service was very slow, food average but very, very expensive for what it was, not very comfortable as far as air conditioning and it was a very humid day. Wrong mixer in our second round of drinks but we couldn’t be bothered complaining and having to wait for another one. Interior is beautiful, very classy, great choice.

The waitress was very attentive, however we had to wait almost an hour for our two main meals. We got there early, bang on 12 to avoid waiting too long. The food was nice but expensive for what it was.

I would never go back again they are very selective where you can sit if you dont know the owner you no chance to get table 2. Entree came out with the main meal must of been running well behind and wanted us out for the next setting. Overall very disappointing the only good thing of the night was our waitress Malaya the rest you can forget.
