Dined here by myself on a Saturday night which was a great experience as I was able to really focus on and savour the food - which was excellent. The Salmon sashimi to start was generous and excellently presented. The T bone steak med-rare was cooked to perfection. The sides of bok choy and duck fat potatoes worked well and the meal was topped off with a superb blue cheese and a glass of sticky. Overall the food was excellent. The waiter was friendly and attentive. The waitress that came to the table on just one occasion looked however like she didnt want to be there. Around $150 including tip with a glass of wine in addition to the sticky.

Yum yum yum! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience here! The eye fillet was out the gate YUM! Duck fat potatoes were a bit of a let down but everything else was top notch. The crispy squid was beautiful, the corn croquettes were creamy and tasty, the mushrooms were fresh and a great compliment to the eye fillet, the sauces were beautiful!
The wine is not cheap but I was impressed with the house Shiraz. Friendly & attentive staff. Can’t wait to dine here again :)

We had a business dinner on the mezzinine floor, the shared menu and quality of the food was exceptional. The wine list is extensive and while a little pricey is what you expect at high end establishments. Service was excellent also.

This place was a "by chance" encounter! Yes it was a bit on the expensive side, but the ambiance, service and food was worth it.

From the moment we were greeted and welcomed to our setting - it was a Tuesday evening... it felt really nice and not too pretentious! The fabulous selection of food and wine selection (catering for vegetarians) was perfect!.

We were constantly being cared for by our wonderful Argentinian host, who made sure the experience was one to remember. OK, so it was a relatively expensive night out, but for us and our experience it was worth it. Tip for couples...make sure you get a table with the 'kings chair'...nice touch!
