Hard to fault, polished service original distinctive cocktails, great open look of restaurant. to top it all lots of interesting food of level that has converted us self confessed foodie fans to put it in our top three Favourite hatted restaurants we have visited in Brisbane along with Gerard’s and gauge , our personal highlights were the kingfish crudo served on its own smoked tail with ants, and the koji aged steak served with the theatre of waiter shaving bone marrow tableside elevated the whole dish to our groups all time favourite, flavour and tenderness like nothing we have tried, as a group we have been on a hatted restaurant dining trail and look forward to our next visit. Great time and fun had by all.

The koji steak left us speechless, from the potato foam and the cracker made from beef tendon to the frozen bone marrow shaved over it at the table by our charming French waiter, at the first bite of steak it was a real ‘ratatouille’ moment...
Thank you David the French waiter it was all you said it would be we will be back ... ooh la la

If you want to taste a modern artwork, you can't miss out this place! Every dishes were made beautifully, and taste was also gorgeous! You definitely won't see many restaurants like this in Brisbane, and it is absolutely a hidden gem! Service side has nothing to fault. Our waiter has made our night very pleasant and a enjoyable one!

We stopped in for a quick lunch and liked it so much we came back for dinner.

The menu offers an eclectic mix is small, medium and large share plates. As seems to be a trend in Brisbane, the dishes are generally listed with their 3 main ingredients eg pastrami lamb, fennel and sweet potato with no indication of how the dish is cooked or served. This is a great opportunity to have a conversation with your waiter, who are very friendly and knowledgeable. The dishes we tried over our two meals included
- bread (which came with their own home made butter
- school prawns
- smoked trout
- carrots
- pastrami lamb
- schnapper
- salt and vinegar fries

All the dishes were cooked to perfection and used a range of herbs and spices that weren’t hinted at in the menu to create great flavours.

We found that a couple of small dishes and two larger ones were sufficient for us, which unfortunately meant we ate too much to try dessert.

If we lived in Brisbane we’d become regulars.
