Probably our own problem but we hen you don’t eat seafood there was basically nothing to order. We tried the peppers, asparagus, bread and salami .. but I could have put this together from the supermarket in 10 mins ...sorry and nothing on the cocktail menu either :(

Absolutely wonderful! Very accommodating eventhough we had last minute changes on number of people coming in and picked a different set menu instead (sorry about that, we felt bad for the changes 🙏🏻) Atmosphere is so vibey, love the playlist. The timing of each dish served was perfect. Each dish full of flavors with the right balance of each component 😍 It really paired well with the Gris Noir (our new favorite!) Thank you to FOH superstars Gatlin and the gentleman in black (sorry didn’t get his name) for the lovely service ❤️ And BOH for outstanding food. Can’t wait to be back again to try the other things on the menu 😋 Xx Deanna

A wonderful evening made so by both the food and the staff. All of our dishes were delicious but the asparagus deserves special mention by surpassing any other asparagus dish we had ever eaten.

Always outstanding and no exception this time. Fave dishes - clams, bone marrow, pretty much everything!

Of all the bars and restaurants in all the world, we missed you the most during lock down! So glad to see you all back, smiling and doing what you do so well. We had the loveliest night - fantastic food, a really interesting discovery in the wine department and most importantly, great people delivering wonderful hospitality. Thanks

It was a great experience for my bday. I wanted to try something new and different so it was a good place to be! The staff are very friendly and thoughtful. Food was delicious and however it’s a bar & bistro so if you are super hungry, you gonna need heaps to fill you up, portions are very small.
