In Wellington for a short break, we chose this place for a casual Sunday dinner and were not disappointed. Even though the restaurant was extremely busy the individual service was amazing, attention to detail and professionalism of all staff was a joy to witness, and...More

Food here was excellent, well cooked and presented. The service was attentive but unobtrusive. At busy times the background noise can be a bit off putting if you are hard of hearing. Well worth a visit.

Make sure you arrive early, they don't take reservations, and it fills up REALLY fast. Food was awesome, especially the Venison Carpaccio and the Confit Chicken.
