This centrally located restaurant has funky decor an extensive drink menu and food that is tapas with a difference. The staff were attentive and helpful and the dishes we ordered had terrific flavours and was just the right amount of food for two. We left feeling satisfied and will make repeat visits.

A brief walk from Parliament station, you go upstairs and get the impression you're entering the kitchen. Interesting decor in a long narrowish room and wow what a menu. Our favourite was - Snake bean and golden sweet potato poached wonton with green pea puree and coriander foam! A taste extravaganza. Quite strong so have second to lighter option such as the wontons. Lamb shoulder and barramundi in black garlic also winners. And I could definitely have a bowl of the Brussel sprouts all to myself. Reasonably priced - $100 a head included 3 bottles of wine 5 dishes, 2 sides and a lovely port to finish. And to compliment & enhance the food were some fabulous wait staff who's recommendations and personalities made fir a truly memorable evening. Will be back.

Went last night for a quick meal before going to the theatre. The pork belly and salad was probably the most delicious meal I have had for quite a while. The wait staff were the most friendly and attentive I have ever come across. They knew our tight timeline and looked after us. We loved it so much, we went back for dessert after the show.

Wasn't sure on this place - last minute booking (10 minutes notice) and we were in. The menu was not extensive and pretty much every dish sounded very appealing. Portion sizes was left to the waiting staff to recommend to the kitchen based upon the number of people at our table and any dietary requirements.
They were spot on for.
A couple of mistakes in delivery of dishes, however, this was rectified on the house.
All the dishes looked and tasted delicious.
The cocktails on offer were a little different, exotic and actually delivered on their promise.
Very nice. I will be back again next time in Melbourne.
We left feeling very satisfied.
