Ok, so I don't need a bar man to shower us girls with attention for a Monday night book club dinner, but to be asked if we wanted a second drink, or look at the desert menu would have been a start! We struggle to...More

Once a neighbourhood gem, a change of hands seems to have affected both food & service. The menu online is vastly different to that offered at the table, less dishes and tweaks that won't warrant a return. Whilst sides of salad and wedges now come...More

It was a gorgeous Melbourne summer evening( hasn't been too many) so we chose to have a drink outside. The outdoor space including the tables was in need of a good clean. We had to ask to have the table wiped down. We ate inside....More
