We've never had a bad meal here. Be mindful which area you book to sit in as there is a rather steep set of stairs leading to the upper dining section. No BYO on weekends which is a downer.

Had a celebratory lunch here last week. Absolutely mouth watering. Cannot fault anything. Food was absolutely stunning. Service was very good and the cafe itself has a great ambiance. A little pricey for lunch, but nonetheless, so delicious. Can highly recommend.

We were a group of five and had a three course dinner on a warm Saturday night in January. The food and wine was all great (if a little pricey), but the service was not really up to scratch. The scallop entree was delectable.

Dined there with a group of friends and generally we enjoyed the meal and the night despite the poor service. I had the terrine and the spatchcock . Both were excellent. However the wine list was exorbitant for a local suburban restaurant. The food cost...More
