My son took me here last school holidays while I was visiting.. He did not realize it was a degustation menu, but had heard great reviews. We chose the 5 course menu, and right from the start we were impressed with the service and the food. The presentation was amazing, the flavors to die for, and each mouthful memorable. I... More

This was my favorite restaurant but many things were changed in a few weeks. The price went up by 10 nzd per person for a lesser amount of plate (4 instead of 5), the portions were really small this time -Wagyu was a one bite meat. Of course all were really delicious, but I paid 500 nzd (50 tip) for... More

One of the best meals that I've ever had. Everything there was just delicious. Highly recommend this place. I did the five course for lunch. I wish I could have done the 9 course. The only thing is that I wish I could have had a different choice for the selection as compared to my friend. We both had to... More

We have been heard of this restaurant for a while, but never got a chance to visit. Here comes to our birthday celebration, giving us the great opportunity to try this fantastic restaurant. We were there on 14th November 2016, it was Monday, this also gives us the chance to try the Chef Special Menu with a reasonable price, we... More

We ate here on a Monday night and took advantage of the chef's choice degustation for $69.00 instead of the usual $89.00. I upgraded to the crayfish for an extra $20.00 and thought it was well worth it. Each course was delicious and service was assured and professional. The room has a warm ambience and our waiter from the Loire... More

We arrived and were greeted and seated with friendly smile and style and the service continued to be outstanding all night. We both ordered the nine course offer and glad we did as I'm sure 5 courses were not going to be enough. Sounds silly but they are 5 very small courses so 9 was perfect and all very nice... More

We had the 5 course degustation menu. We liked how we could choose any 5 dishes combination. The intensity of sweet tomato combined with the morton bay bugs was devine, the flavours with the lamb were superb, and the grade 9 wagyu hanger steak was full of flavour, succulent, and cooked to perfection. An impressive restaurant, up there with the... More

I give the staff 10 out of 10. They were all engaging - right form the moment we walked in, including the bar staff ! Food was also very good at a 9/10 and well worth the visit. We had the 5 course blind degustation which was a great choice. Staff checked for any dislikes and accommodated these for us.... More
