    Shout out to the divine Rupert, who on his first shift was extremely enthusiastic to promote the Restaurant and food. His customer service was exemplary for us 3 middle aged ladies, treating us with the utmost respect and engaged with us for our entire dining experience. Rupert is a wonderful asset to Freyja!!

    Thought the whole thing was a bit overrated. The food looked beautiful, and the chefs were nice - but that was about it. The waitress who served us just did not know what she was doing and felt like it was her first day (awkward introductions, didn’t know how to clear or serve the cutlery, didn’t give time to think about what to order etc) When it comes to food, the mussels were overpowered by the bitterness of the dressing. Overly salty deep fried potatoes that cost $17?! Nah. Three small pieces of duck breast for $52? Nah.

    Service was poor, difficultly flagging down any staff when needed. Finished plates and empty glasses sat on the table for 30 minutes between courses. Food took a long time to come out, waiting 30-40 minutes between entrees, mains and desserts. From being seated to paying the bill, we were there for over 3 hours total - not ideal if you have other plans afterward. Took us 20 minutes to pay (actively trying to get a waiters attention to checkout so we could leave, watching as he straightened other empty tables and refilled water glasses at other tables). May have just been short staffed, but there were only 4-5 other tables sat and 3-5 waitstaff, so unsure what made service so slow. Food was experimental. Some interesting and unique flavours on dishes, which made for a different dining experience. Some flavours clashed and competed a little, but overall some great dishes. The beetroot was so fresh and yummy, could have gotten an entire table of just the entrees, they all looked so good! Unfortunately the lamb main came out really fatty and a lot had to be cut off and left on the plate, which was unfortunate for the price. Felt like we only got half a serving. Some portions were smaller than expected as well. Cocktails were 10/10! Mixologist has done a great job at creating balanced and super tasty drinks. Wish we could have tried more on the night, but it was difficult to wave down anyone to order additional drinks (even to just get water refilled), so we skipped on getting extra cocktails. Restaurant itself was lovely. Cozy, great ambiance and mood lighting. Spacious seating, so you didn’t feel like you were crammed on top of each other. Would love to return again to try a few more of the dishes, would just hope that service would be better upon returning. Might have gotten them on an off-night, but service felt very relaxed and slow-paced (works for some, but an over 3 hour dinner for only 3 courses was a bit of a shock and we had to cancel our after plans)
