What a beautiful meal. Angilotto for Entrée and Pork Belly for main. Pork Belly was double cooked and melted in my mouth. Flavour was great. I would love to have it again. Staff were very attentive and friendly.

Menu is not large but very varied. Most diners would find something top their taste. Courses are served promptly and are beautifully presented and taste just great. Wine list is extensive and varied. Service is excellent and VERY friendly.

The terrine, ocean trout and pork belly were all delicious (though a bit salty for me) and well presented and the wine list is extensive (and expensive), but with the space nearly at capacity it was sometimes hard to talk over the noise (too many...More
