    I love it here. It’s so clean but…. I only eat fish so would love if salt n pepper calamari was on the menu … even as a starter. Staff are very attentive and lovely people. Nothing is too much trouble….. and of course if you are lucky enough to secure a window table … what an outlook. I’ll be back soon

    Really disappointed with this meal after having good experiences previously. The prawns cost $42 and there was hardly any meat on them. Fries were $13. The fish for the main was OK, but there's no way this was worth $238 (including just one glass of wine). Really disappointed overall.

    Sublime food choices on a moderate sized menu. If you prefer 2 entrees, the range was excellent. Wine list unbelievable, in a thick leather tome. Danielle was a gorgeous waiter. Not intrusive but full of good ideas. Park in the road free. No need a ticket.

    Great location so you are paying extra for the view but I do have an issue paying top dollar for food and they allow people to sit and work on the laptops! Kills the vibe entirely!

    Noisy venue with lots of children. Service ordinary - waitress was going to pour champagne into a normal wine glass before we requested proper glasses. And charging a 10% weekend surcharge when the prices are already hihgh-end!!!

    Food was not as fresh, we ordered crawfish and it taste very fishy which tends to be the case when ingredients aren’t fresh. For the price of food, I expected better quality.

    This was our first outing as a couple after having a new baby and the staff and food were exceptional. Food was delicious and the maître d (possibly the manager?) was so gracious and helpful about us having a pram. Thank you for making our lunch extra special by putting us at ease about having a newborn with us.
