We came here Dec 2016 for a five course degustation. We really really enjoyed it. It was a good amount of food for us and we enjoyed each of the dishes. I thought the dishes were quite different and refreshing. The decor and seating were nostalgic and reminded me of Victorian times. I forgot that I was in a restaurant... More

Went for the 5 course degustation on one of the deals. The restaurant is a number of rooms which link too one another. The decor is fascinating, not sure how best to describe it, modern french renaissance? But there are endless things to look at and talk about. Great conversation starters. The food was beautifully presented. What appeared to be... More

Great Ambience and the 5 course (short) degustation meal was just perfect. So that you know,a ll course are tasting plates only, however they are delectable and... More

We had " Hiramasa Kingfish " which visually so beautiful just like an fine art and very delicate flavour with nice herbs. " Slow Roasted Pork Belly " was very tasty and great combination with...

Dined at Deer Duck recently with friends to whom we had raved about it previously. Either management, ownership or staff have changed as it was not the Deer Duck we were used to. It still has great quirky decor with a warm and inviting atmosphere but service delivery has changed dramatically. The food was a good as always but staff... More

I have been there a couple of times and had mixed results- it depends on the mood of the serving staff - food is quant and a bit experiential- we have not rushed back

We chose this restaurant for my fathers 70th birthday celebration with a small group of 8. We had a private room which was a nice size for the number but was difficult to hear more than just the conversation next to you. I was not made aware when I booked that Saturday night is a choice of set menu's only.... More
