OK, so I was the only customer but the food was excellent, and service great. I had the Paris style scrabbled egg (with cavea), a great French Onion soup, and an Australian beef roulade, and a French apple tart

Thursday night wine tasting was a fun, friendly crowd. The sommelier was so approachable and friendly. He was a good host. The room at the back is small but it was a good way to meet people.
