Wonderful service, great atmosphere and amazing food. We were late trying to book, but the extremely helpful staff were able to find us a table. From there the evening got better and better.

You could not fault anything with the 5 course meal we had. I also had matching wines. They were fabulous as well. The service was top notch also. Nothing was a problem.

Poaced turbot in sherry sauce, followed by "avocado 'n toast" chocolate dessert, washed down with a 2010 sauvignon blanc - excellent! You need to book, or you could be sitting up at the bar, but the food would be just as good anyway. Bridget served...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.
