We booked online and turned up to find a very busy little restaurant - which had been recommended and had a good TA rating. Staff were extremely helpful and the food was a treat, as was the accompanying wine.

Great vibe. The venison tartare is excellent. Hash brown fires is a twist. Good service. Nice wine selection. This place is well worth a try.

Signage of restaurant not clear. Ambience v nice, restaurant well decorated. Good design but I don’t like the idea of sitting below shelves that have pickled bottles on them plus knives design on shelves, not sure how stable they are above our heads. Great food....More

A well designed restaurant using limited space. Menu is short but food presentation and standard is excellent and staff are very well versed in how the food is prepared and what is involved. Staff are appropriately attentive.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was so good you wished you were a kid who could get away with licking your plate clean. The wines were lovely. I had: the fried green tomato (nicely crisp tart), the pressed lamb, the squash cannelloni,...More

We ordered the 6 course chefs tasting menu which I think cost $72 each. we also ordered the matching wines which we shared as we are not big wine drinkers and 50ml servings shared between the two of us was quite adequate.
