Fabulous meal with outstanding service and a view to die for. We had Salmon Gravlax and Octopus for stater, both amazing but special mention to the salmon. Steak and lamb for mains which were both perfect. Service was really friendly and attentive and sitting out on the balcony with a view over the bay was perfect.

We gave this place a chance on a Saturday afternoon and couldn’t believe how quiet it was! Gorgeous decor and views out onto the lake. The service was great and our waitress was incredibly friendly.

The food was delicious - we both went for the steak frites and then had desserts which were both incredible - the chocolate delice and apple tart.

Can’t believe this place isn’t packed - it should be!

WE had a quick cocktail & snack in the Bar. The Cheese Toastie is AMAZING!
Great views from the upstairs Bar area & a really nice Decor. Probably one of the better views on the Waterfront. Would have gone back for more Toasties the next day but was running late.

Where to start... First the service: staff members were welcoming, knowledgeable and attentive. THE FOOD. It started with complimentary sourdough bread with whipped herbed butter. We could not resist, we ordered 3 entrees and 3 mains. Grilled octopus (perfectly matched flavours with the sea vegetables and other condiments), beetroot salmon gravlax with caviar (absolutely delectable), and pork terrine. Mains were Merino lamb racks (no exaggeration here, this was probably the best lamb roast and jus we've ever had), tenderloin steak with pepper sauce (I'm obsessed with this pepper sauce, it has a good amount of kick in it and just so so tasty) and the whole fish (freshly caught fish with delicate creamy white wine butter sauce). We shared a dessert which was the creme brulee, we were initially concerned about the pink peppercorns in the description but these only served to add a hint of peppery goodness, nothing too spicy at all and it was a very well rounded dish (no pun intended!). We'll be back.
Full disclosure - we booked with First Table so the prices we paid for our meal was more than fair.
