After being treated like second class citizens, with dreadful service that was abrupt, rude and unhelpful, the starter was NOT fresh (dried out salmon and 2 pieces of lettuce obviously sat out for some time on the bench), was all overcooked and had FACIAL HAIR in it, we decided to leave BEFORE finishing our meals. There was NO resolution offered... More

Just a wonderful spot overlooking the bay. Loved the decor and the service was excellent. Food was very good although we all thought overpriced? Not sure about the drinks? As experienced cocktail drinkers we all felt that the alcohol content was "not as expected".....

One of our favourite restaurants to go when in Melbourne. So disappointed I doubt we will go again. Ordered lobster and unfortunately wasn't quoted price - $360. Linguine could have been last nights leftovers, lobster over cooked and tough. $120 a kilo at the South Melbourne Market - $240 to over cook it!!!! Didn't even get the claws Friendly staff.... More

Wined and dined here with my wife. What a beautiful Porterhouse steak I had here with a terrific side dish of hand made fries. The meal taken came initially with a seafood platter with oysters, calamari, prawns and salmon which was a great way to start the meal. I then accompanied my Main meal of porterhouse steak with a lovely... More

Food really amazing, the décor is classy. Staff really nice, had a wonderful lunch. The views of the bay are spectacular highly recommend it. Food serves are very generous large in fact. Will definitely visit again and recommend to all my friends.

Worst toilets in my many years of dining- especially when rating itself a 'fine dining' location. Sanitary bins overflowing and not even a full paint job on walls and doors- latches hanging off- paint all over latches- disgusting smell that we all held off going until after dinner!!! Owner is the creepiest and most disturbing individual I've ever witnessed. I... More

Used a GroupOn voucher for 4 people. After seeing some poor reviews, we were pleasantly surprised. Great location, great service and good food. We'll go back ( without a voucher) to check out other menu items . . .
