Felt very out of touch with where eateries need to be. Were told they did vege options to be offered 1 dish with the meat removed. Expensive and out of touch in my view.

Very salty food, no kids menu and staff were a little odd. I wouldn't bother going back when there are so many places nearby that are fabulous. Hard to understand how this is number one eatery in hamilton!

We enjoyed our meal as a couple, the booth seating allowed a sense of privacy. The service was fast and efficient. The meal was pleasant, some good flavour combinations, but none of the ‘wow’ factor that often comes with fine dining. It was good to...More
