Booked for a special occasion (which was acknowledged on the booking form) but there was no acknowledgement during the night - we were a bit disappointed. Food was ok, lacked a little in seasoning but overall was ok. Service was a little slow but maybe that’s the way it’s done in Palm Cove. Good night out but not something memorable.

Fantastic location, Carey was outstanding as per usual every time we return... people like her really make the place exceptional. I really enjoyed breakfast as well as dinner. The food is excellent.

Desert not served by waitress who took order, resulting in confusion about who ordered what. We would have ordered a bottle of wine but waitress thought we wanted two glass only. More confusion. We have dined here on a number of occasions over the past 20 years; it was our go to restaurant for special occasions, but may have slipped back recently.

Need some lower priced wines on the list, the cheapest is $60 and there are only a couple at that price. Flute player in the restaurant was mournful - music to slit your wrists by - he should stick to classical rather than pops from the 60's. A decent playlist would have been preferable but it needs to be good, not elevator music or the type of thing you shop to in Coles. Staff were lovely, especially Elise.

There was no cooked seafood to share option, as outlined on the online menu. The waiter forgot our side option & provided the incorrect food which was very late.

Pleasant environment. Note: the Table Plus web site often says there are no tables when in fact there still are some.

Very, very carefully pouring wine to the adequate level is petty. Please advise what wines are available with the welcome voucher.

We came twice to the restaurant, once for the degustation menu and the other time for a "a a carte". What we really appreciate: the food was superbe (especially the barrramundi & the gnocchi were divine) as well as the advice about the wine / cocktails from Bernard. A point to improve slightly: the service could have been better, sometimes long waitings. It was obvious some waiters have more experience than others. Overall a great dining experience, a memorable birthday night! Thank you!

Food was superb and your on site somelier Bernard was very knowledgeable on his wine suggestions and pairings with the entree for example. We used our Accor card and that was great value. Will probably go back before the end of our holidays in palm cove.

Really well balanced meal. The scallops and pork belly were the best I’ve ever had, ginger jam amazing. Wines and cocktails great and seating arrangements perfect with a lot of room between tables. Be back again for sure
