Food was good as always, the service (especially George) fantastic. The only recommendation would be to turn the music down a couple of notches.
Thanks for a great day.

Humble frontage but spectacular inside and at the back. Ample parking. Food is fresh and delicious. Beautiful seafood and amazing pizza. Great service.

We had a delightful meal watching the sunset over the water. The (complimentary) fresh bread as a starter was delicious and the staff were attentive with extra customer service. The food was tastefully presented and well prepared. Would definitely like to visit again.

Attended for my Husbands Big birthday - Service was amazing and we had a wonderful time. i asked for a certain area to be seated as had family over from New Zealand and I wanted them to see the city Light, and it wasn't an issue.
The Meal was lovely.
We all had a wonderful night, especially my husband.
I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will defiantly be back.
Thank You for a wonderful night.

Excellent Food. It was a quiet night which worried us a little. Service was patchy, perhaps some new staff were on.

Seriously good cooking,having worked at a few high end restaurants over my 20 plus years in hospitality I try to go into a venue/establiment without preconceived expectations.
This is truly a hidden gem!! Unfortunately the floor service wasnt as good a representation of the venue of the location and food.our friendly and lovely Chinese waiter stumbled over specials and explanations of dishes but it didn't matter in the end as I ordered the Harpooka for my wife and squid ink ravioli filled with a genourous serve of crab for mains and neither disappointed,in fact nothing was even close to disappointing it was fresh produce used with respect and honesty.
Would I go back???? You bet I would,everyday if I could afford it
Well done and thank you

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here with the three of us all happy with our meals. The wine was reasonably priced with no huge mark up and the dessert was yummy - one of us ordered the Affogato and it was so good we ordered a second. The wait staff - Pak and George on this occasion - were fantastic. So professional and friendly that they made us feel special. Oops. Forgot chef. Thank you all.

We had a friend with us who is on the FODMAP diet. Chef and server knew what she could eat and had prepared a number of options 5 stars in my book for being prepared and open to her needs. THANK YOU 🙂

Lovely setting and beautiful looking restaurant. The staff were very attentive and polite. The level of expectation for the food created by the lovely restaurant and great staff unfortunately did not match.

I found the food to be not as refined as expected. I had the Tune Carparcio, which was cut far to thickly and not seasoned at all. I then had the 'special' of baby snapper and again, not as refined as expected. The picture created in my mind by the explanation of the waiter was nothing like what appeared on the plate with large piles of lettuce and a slapped on tomato accompaniment.

My friend an I were overcharged $60. This has been refunded to my friends credit card, only after she checked the docket when she arrived home. Her meal of lamb shanks were a bit tough. My snapper was very nice.

Want to be kind . Most food ok to good . Nice antipasto, would love more veges on it as well. Great Special dessert. Special mains were best. 1 bad dish spoiled things a bit. Server attentive, background music sophisticated, nice view. Visited on a quiet night so might not be typical.

A gorgeous restaurant with a fabulous view of the Melbourne skyline. The service was exceptional as was the food. I had the special king prawn risotto and it was without doubt the best meal I’ve had in a long time. Awesome!

Restaurant is very impressive when you walk in. Food is average and over priced. Had tortellini dish, they were cold and my husband had seafood pasta, hardly any seafood in dish, calamari were like rubber bands and small portion at main meal price. Very disappointed

Good service and ok quality food. Great location, however it is way overpriced for the quality of food you are getting. We paid $180 for a small portioned two course meal and no alcohol. You are pushing into the territory of some of Melbourne top restaurants at these prices and the food just doesn’t stack up. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant on that basis.
