The Grove does make it into our top ten best restaurants. It is something really special. We dined on the Mini degustation, as we doubted we could finish the Full menu. It was hard to finish the Mini menu! What is unusual for a degustation menu is that you get to select the dishes you would like. Great system, great... More

The staff were all so helpful and welcoming from the moment we walked in the door. Very well versed on the dishes and wines we had accompanying our dishes. The food presentation was amazing and did not disappoint our taste buds. Would definitely recommend to those wanting to enjoy fabulous food and service no matter the occasion.

We were there for my wife Birthday, we had the 7-course surprise degustation menu, what an awesome experience from beginning to end. The staff were outstanding and would recommend The Grove to anyone, thank you for an excellent night.

As usual The Grove hugely pleased us. We had the petit degustation and this was the right amount of food for us. Standouts were the gratis "snacks", the rock lobster and the amazing and extremely clever varlrhona chocolate ballon dessert. Simply delicious. Fabulous wine matches from our knowledgeable waiter Fabian. Thanks again crew. Oh, and two years ago we had... More

I was lucky enough to dine at The Grove recently and was blown away. The degustation meal was amazing and the service, Fabian, was outstanding. All of the courses were stand outs with the lobster and beef meals being very memorable. If you get an opportunity - dine at The Grove!

Has a great experience with fantastic food and the assorted wines were really well matched. Service was very friendly and gave excellent advice. For sure will return in future when we have the time. The beef and lobster were exquisite.

I had dinner last night and went for the full degustation ($145). I thought, on the whole, the courses I had were excellent, with standouts being the cucumber dish, which was exceptional, with varying textures and flavours. Fresh and tasty. Also of note was the Lobster, which was lightly smoked. It was served whilst the smoke was still wafting. Wonderul... More

My friends and I dined here last month and enjoyed the food but were turned off by the bill when it came. We enjoyed a 7 course meal and had asked for regular tap water, and yet at the end we were charged for two bottles of acqua panna which we did not order. This led us to have a... More

We had a delightful 7 course degustation with a couple of snacks provided. It took 3.5 hours which was just right. The lobster and john dory were amazing and the cucumber dish really different. The passionfruit souffle and Alaska bombe were out of this world.

Truly amazing food and wine. Recommended for a special occasion as the price was expensive when paired with wine. We had the 9 course degustation and suggest giving yourself plenty of time to enjoy the meals, if not the entire night. Staff were very knowledgeable when it came to the wine and pairing.
