We were disappointed by the fare and the service when we went. Soup was lukewarm, the salmon was edible, although only that. It's a pretty place. Let's hope that the new owners do something smashing with it. The location is superb.

I took a small group of people here for a celebratory meal and was more than pleased with the event. The wine list was reasonable, the food interesting and well-prepared, and the staff friendly and helpful, especially when it came to explaining previously unknown fish!

Went on a Saturday night, which is ribs night. It's probably a language thing, when I see slow cooked boneless ribs on a menu in Australia I don't expect to be presented with a dinosaur-sized rib eye steak, which is what I got. Don't get...More
