    Fabulous evening and not too busy as we were hoping for a quiet dinner…. Great food as ever…tartare was really out there…with some distinct and impressive tweaks from the ordinary, subtle heat and moreish texture. Burrata sublime…and just the right touch of herb/jus to make it zing. Grilled marinaded trout fillet a welcome surprise, too…subtle, spot on…perhaps shouldn’t have ordered the delicious chats as they were surplus to requirements…dish stands well on its own. Only off note would be the risotto…which in other circumstances would be lovely, but really flawed by the inclusion of unheralded Brussels sprouts (that divisive veggie) which all but overpowered the plate….we hate them, some love them but it would be nice if it was mentioned in the menu…. Wines (well, wine list) superb…from a half bottle of yarra yerring to the relatively accessible Novum PN (though the list oozes with delicious, if pricey, burgundies). Notably, and I wish it was in my reach, they carry Ch. Musar, two good vintages…give them a go if you have the funds…it’s possibly one of the best value (even at $300!) wines they have. Staff were lovely, spry and engaging on what must be a pretty difficult shift at the end of the weekend. Altogether a great night, thank you….but next time please keep the brassicas away!!!

    The food was delicious and came out quickly. The wine list is extensive with so many great Australian wines to choose from (along with international ones but I was mainly interested in the Oz selection). Staff were very professional and attentive. We had a lovely time
