Came here for our wedding anniversary, with a three course meal deal voucher off GrabOne. The staff were very friendly and helpful; one even walking across the road to take our photo at mission bay. The 3 course meal was Devine, my wife had the fish of the day and I had the steak, both cooked to perfection.

We have been to this restaurant twice in the last 2 months. The first time, the meals were excellent and the service good, if a little slow. The second time, the fish was overcooked, and the pork belly seemed old and barely warm. Service was again good, except no one asked us how our meals were, and we would have... More

I'm a bit nervous about 'voucher' meals in restaurants - my experience is that they often leave you feeling 'second class', but when my daughter bought a four person meal for my birthday, we were locked in. Happily, this was a very positive experience. The food was really good, and a nice selection from the short menu, including some good... More

I was one of a party of 50 for a birthday celebration. Personally I think they were slightly understaffed for our large group but once we got our meals they were absolutely beautiful. Everyone at my table was delighted with their food. I happened to be at the table that was served last but there was no change in the... More

Great food. We had a table of 14 and the staff did well considering they were so short staffed. We were told are the beginning of the night that some of the wait staff hadn't turned up. Recommended if you intend to go as a couple or less than 6.

Took advantage of a grabone deal for 4. The 3 courses had a good selection including for our vegetarian diner, and we all enjoyed our meals enormously. Couldnt fault it at all. Absolutely top notch. I had the best steak in ages. Cooked to perfection with a delectable bearnaise sauce. Service was entertaining and seamless. A good wine selection and... More

Went for a Xmas function and service was good. We had a set menu for $65 a head - entree was prawns (4) and main I had the gurnard - was nice but very small piece of fish. My team were hungry after the two courses (guys and girls) and so we got some bread as well. Food tastes good... More
