“Excellent meal !”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Was recommended here by our hotel and was very good indeed.. Menu was a lot different to what we normally see ( UK ) and chose a mixture of both. Highlight was the 3 times cooked pork belly... Yum ! .. Service was excellent .. We also asked the waiter if they did cauliflower and if not was it possible .. It was and the chef nailed it .. Overall a great dining experience.

“good food; attentive service”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

I had the abalone starter and a lamb main. Both were quite good. We were early so not many tables were taken yet; the wait staff hovered very nearby (which was somewhat disconcerting, but convenient when we needed anything).
