    Lived up to its excellent reputation- service very good from table waiter and sommelier , very extensive wine list and the lunch food specials, whilst not pushing any culinary boundaries, were perfect. Not cheap but good value. Definitely recommended.

    we went to a set menu coarse, with wine, and the entree was appalling, and set a poor start to our lunch, drinks were few and far between, we had to by extra bottles for the group... not great

    We as a couple have visited over the past 20 years and have always had a great time and meals have been great. We decided to invite 10 close family and friends with two of them recently having birthdays. The staff were aware of this and made them feel special indeed. The staff couldn't do enough for us and with the meals being top notch our friends from New Zealand and others from interstate will surely spread the word on how great this place is!

    Food just OK…nothing special or noteworthy. I paid with my American Citi Bank credit card and was told the manager would have to call the bank as they had issues with Americans in the past. As a retired United States Marine Corps officer I found this offensive as my credit card had already posted the charge. Furthermore I felt that they had slighted my integrity. I will not return
