A great dining experience with an innovative degustation menu. Not expensive by Sydney standards and the offering is delicious and presented in a creative way. A culinary adventure. Only let down was the service with staff not particularly informative.

We had the degustation menu recently for my birthday dinner. I liked the decor of the restaurant (very clean and simple) but only a few tables have a good view so that was a bit disappointing. Starting with a small hiccup (the drink menu was...More

We had the degustation menu. I think there were 6 or 7 courses paired with wines. My favourite was the gnocchi which was absolutely delicious. Lovely setting overlooking the river.
