Our meals were all excellently prepared and delicious with interesting flavour combinations. I particularly enjoyed my asparagus sausage soup which was a feature. All of our party of five were impressed with the... More

Unfortunately, I have come to realize that many of the reviews on trip advisor are NOT the same as my own experience, and so I've come to expect a bit of disappointment. This place... left me very impressed. As I was dining I kept thinking - this kitchen clearly has a chef who knows what s/he is doing. The flavours... More

I love to come to this restaurant on a personal note but is also my go to place to impress my clients. The staff and food is all about making sure everything is always perfect.

We arrived without reservations after an early movie and the were able to accommodate us within 5 min. We both had soup for starters, her saffron onion was very good but my roasted red pepper soup of the day was even better. We each had fish for mains.

Although the food was tasty there are a couple things I expect when fine dinning that were not the greatest at Bin 23 eg. The bread they served before dinner was not good. I look for different breads and dips at places like this. Something I don't have in my cupboard. Also the dinner plates should be hot and I... More
