My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary dinner and had a fantastic night!

We had made a booking the night before, unfortunately it had not been registered, but no problem there was an available table. We were sat right next to the kitchen (as the restaurant is quite small the 2 seater tables are positioned to the front), I would recommend asking to be seated towards the rear of the restaurant on the red couches for a bit more ambience when making a reservation, but our table was fine- the light fittings are great and we didn't find it loud at all! (much quieter than other places we have dined at where you can hardly hold a conversation).

Can't fault the service, polite, warm and inviting- not pretentious. I got a mojito and my partner got a little creatures- drinks came fast and we were offered some bread for starters (very rare you get free bread before the meal these days!). We ordered the degustation menu and it was delicious (if not a bit too much food!). We got the seafood chowder (absolutely delicious and came out piping hot), canadian clearwater scallops (very nice), coral trout with prawns (perfectly cooked), angus fillet steak with mash and asparagus (again beautifully cooked), a selection of chocolate desserts (white chocolate cheescake was yum) and a cheese platter (a struggle to eat, but great selection of cheese and dried fruits). Pretty reasonably priced at $85 per person considering the amount of food and the great service. Our glasses were always refilled with water without asking and the courses came out in perfect timing.

Overall a fantastic experience I would recommend to anyone.

terrible carpet; loud; noisy; food and wine overpriced by about 30%. If it wasn't for the excellent service this "restaurant" REALLY would have sucked.

Why is it that people confuse the price on the menu with quality. I would have expected a little more ambiance for the money, but it was loud and tacky. How on earth this restaurant gets good reviews defies belief.

The only redeeming feature was the service. Probably quite good for less sophisticated diners.

We got the degustation menu (6 course) for $75 (less discount with the entertainment card). We had sashimi, then prawns in XO sauce, then Coral Trout, then Steak, then desert, then cheese plate + petite fours and tea/coffee. Pretty good value.
