Reviewed April 4, 2018

Had dinner over busy Easter period. Steak and seafood was to die for. My husband indulged in the 500gm Rib eye which cooked to perfection and the tempura seafood was fresh. Meal complimented with great service from friendly staff and a great bottle of local wine. A dinner to remember.... oh and what a view. Will definitely be back.

Amazing location on the wharf views are fabulous, try to go for a drink and a cheese platter during the day as I have previously done you won’t regret it and will go back again.
Dinner is a different thing the menu is small and good they do a great pizza the decor is in keeping with the marine feel and I loved the fit out! For 3 of us it was around $250 we had a drink each before the meal a olive and pickle starter and a shared pizza followed by a main each and a bottle of wine.
It’s the noise that is almost unbearable, there is a desperate need to do something about the accoustics we could hardly hear our conversations and there were a couple of plate crashes in the restaurant that were so loud. The sounds are really distracting not a romantic or date night place.
We left as soon as we finished due to the noise!

We came here after it was recommended, and we weren't disappointed. Each course was great with a nice wine list too. If you are going for dinner, make sure you get there to enjoy the sunset. It's a little more pricey than the local pubs, but definitely worth it We will be back!

Couples dinner out. Just so noisy it was difficult to hear each other speak. Polished concrete floor, lots of metal and glass. Windows to take in the amazing views of San remo and western port bay. Our drinks were served quickly (mine a Gippsland Chardonnay $12 a glass, hubbie's pot $10.) inadequate red wine list showing poor selection of wines.
We shared a plate of bread, local pickles and olives with dip. Great chunks of grilled bread in olive oil. Charred bread is just so good.
Had to wait a while for the main course but so good.
Steak with pepper sauce excellent. My gnocchi was also excellent, light, fluffy, tossed in butter with a slight crunch on outside. Sauce perfect. Small serve would have left me hungry had it not been for the bread I ate earlier. We shared an Autumn salad with maple dressing - lovely and plentiful, enough for four. Staff were friendly and efficient.
$150 for one shared course, two mains and three drinks each.

We had a lovely meal quite late on a Friday night. Waiter was very accommodating with one of us having a dietary restriction. The view is pretty spectacular from any seat but we didn’t go on a very hot day which I could imagine would be problematic if you sat close to the window. The owner is obviously keen to make this a great success having only been open a few months. The wood fire pizza was wonderful. Slightly upmarket and trendy restaurant. Will be back and can’t wait to see how this place evolves over time.
