What a fantastic night out! Tried the 5 course tasting menu $70 per person with optional wine match, an extra $30. This menu is the chefs choice and changes nightly. Take a risk and order, each dish is a surprise (catering to any dietary requirements)...More

We went as a group booking. To be fair the food was average and the service not that great. Time for food was too long. One order was wrong and one order was forgotten..
