    I feel awful to say this but, the food was a total let down!! We had the “10 course Degustation 2024” and it was not great.. sure they looked cute but the flavours were competing with each other and it was not the right textures sadly. I see what they were trying to do but they just missed the mark for us dining. Besides the food, the Venue is GORG and the service was nice

    Excellent attentive service. Stunning decor. A marvellous array of dishes on their 10 course degustation menu. Of course some I liked more than others, but that’s a given.

    Issue I had with was I told them about peanut allergy that my partner had but because I told them on the night I was charged $15. That was unbelievable. Overpriced, food was okay.

    The food was somewhere between inedible and mediocre. The service was downright terrible - there was clearly no training given to the staff whatsoever, they were not knowledgeable on the dishes, or even how to be waiters. There was not a single decent wine on the pairing, and no explanation or anything given about them. The wait time between courses was regularly over 25 min. Perhaps most frustrating - the chef seemed to give all his attention to one table, which visibly slowed the service. This was one of the worst tasting menu experiences we have ever had. At least the decor was amazing!
