“Great food”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We dined there on a cold and foggy evening. It was a lovely when we stepped inside the restaurant which had a wood fire. We were seated close to the open kitchen where we were able to watch the meticulous chefs preparing our meals. The food was modern and reasonably sized. Our food was plated like a work of art. They were served on black (dark-coloured) plates so it was hard for foodie who liked to take pictures of food without using the flash. Service was professional. However, there was a slip up with the glass of wine my partner ordered to accompany his main meal was not served so when we enquired, the waitress promptly apologized and brought the wine.

“Impressive”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

The atmosphere created by the huge open fireplace was perfection, as was the impeccable food and unexpected extras. Most impressive was the attentive service and attention to detail.

“Lovely evening”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

My partner and I went here for a romantic evening - food was great (as you would expect given the price!). Service was attentive and wine recommendation worked well with the food and our tastes. Fireplace created beautiful, intimate, warm atmosphere. Only minor issue would be the wait between entree and main was quite long. Also had about five or six different wait staff during the evening so not quite sure what each of their roles were-would have preferred one or two rather than so many. Overall, a fantastic evening.

“Long Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Nice bright restaurant. Spacious, tables not too close together. Innovative menu (although mild criticism that would be good to include lighter, more healthy options). Excellent wine list covering all price points. Highlight was excellent service - friendly, knowledgeable waiter.
