The food was delicious, set up considering COVID restrictions was excellent however we won’t go again as it was such poor value. The SMALLEST serving sizes I’ve ever seen - there is no difference between small and large plates with the exception of the lamb neck dish. $23 for pasta and the entire serving fits in the palm of one hand. It’s a beautiful space and amazing local ethos - just don’t go in hungry or mind spending $$$$

Occassion: slight lifting of lockdown.

Was interested to see how different it would be with restricted numbers but, actually I kind of preferred it!!

There was still a vibe about the place and everything went smoothly. Didn’t feel interrupted, it didn’t feel empty or without atmosphere; it all felt very normal.

Food was amazing across all courses, I outlined that I wanted a hot climate type Shiraz and the staff went off and found precisely what I wanted, service was super-friendly.

Had a great time and it was a reminder that the good times are not far away and that they are worth being patient for.

Thank you Rascal!

The menu is interesting and very tasty. The wine menu is big and the staff know them. Highly recommended.

Excellent interesting food but let down a bit by slow service. Hopefully this is a teething problem and could be resolved by putting on extra staff.

Was a nice evening - started to get busy just after we arrived but once we ordered, the food came out quite quickly.

We went here on a date night and were pleasantly surprised. Beautiful room and ambiance. The friendly staff were fantastic - attentive, efficient and knowledgeable.
We will be back to try more of the food as the quality, flavour and presentation was outstanding.
Note to owner - please fix the door lock on the front door. We were locked out of the restaurant upon arrival, our experience on the night made up for this unwelcoming start.

Good food and service. Would be great if they can somehow stop the cigarette smoke floating in. We copped it a few times during dinner.

Lovely! The space is beautiful as was the wine and food. Portions were larger than we expected and everything was delicious. A great addition to Sydney road, we'll be back.

By far the best place in Sydney Road. Ticked all the boxes. Staff fantastic, food amazing, wine list extensive and reasonably priced and the décor was super cool. Will definitely be back.
