We were expectng a banquet of cordon bleu midnight eastern delicacies straight out of the Arabian nights. Unfortunately the haut cuisine was nice and innovative and expensive BUT hard to find any of the aromatic spices the regional flavours we expected.

Vibe: Everything calmly says professional. Deep colours and rich furnishing. Subtle and elegant. I liked the lighting – just enough to make it moody. My partner felt it was a little dim. Food: We had the 6 course degustation and it was maybe a little...More

Our visit was a special day - Maltese Independence Day. The restaurant is in one of Melbourne's tiny side streets, and it's below ground level. Dark and moody. Chef Shane Delia put on such an interesting menu of nine dishes. His special take on what...More

Hi Linda H. Thank you for joining us for our Maltese Independence Lunch. We're happy to hear you enjoyed you experience. On a usual day, we serve food that we would call 'unrestricted' Middle Eastern (not necessarily traditional or cuisine from any one country). We...More

We arrived late afternoon with no dinner plans and decided to go at the last minute. Food was superb. Lots of variety, textures and flavours. The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the dishes. Great ambience and decor. Not cheap but definitely worth it.

Short answer: No. They do course-by-course banquets and can be quite expensive. The food is creatively presented and can feature unusual features. Not sure if kids will appreciate that.
