This is a resturant living on its name. Unfortunately it does not live up to it.
We booked on line, very simple and straightforward, but as it happened, being low season we could have just turned up even though it was a Friday night - always a bad sign if a top- rated eatery is not fully booked weeks in advance.
There were two front-of-house staff, both friendly and efficient, but the high-ceilinged room was as soulless as a university dining hall, stark, cold with no atmosphere.
Entrées were whiting - light, tasty beautifully cooked and pleasant. The lamb kofkas were tasty but obviously pre-cooked and (badly) reheated and lukewarm at best, nice sauce though.
Two Rib-eye steaks were ordered one medium-rare and one medium-well done, both were bordering on well done.
We ordered green vegetables in truffle oil as an accompaniment. Neither of us could taste anything except garlic (which was not mentioned on the menu). So swamped in fact that it buried all other flavours, - saves on truffles I suppose!
Desserts were also a mixed bag, the white chocolate mousse was OK but not standout. On the other hand the lime sorbet accompanying the lime dessert was simply stale tasting and unpleasant. One taste was enough to see not all was right with it.
The wine list was extensive but outrageously inflated in price. $14 a glass for a local average red was way over its value, a bit like the resturaunt.
Overall, the food was only average, the venue unwelcoming, but the service was good.
