A belated 50th celebration was well worth the wait. Great atmosphere, wait staff knowledgeable and discrete, sommelier was great, and food was perfect. So nice that you don't have to travel to Sydney or Melbourne to get a perfect, extraordinary restaurant experience.

Loved it! Everything about it. Wanted to try something new and we were not disappointed. A little pricey so keep in mind, but lovely as a special evening out.

This is a small restaurant. Tables are well-spaced. The overall ambiance is attractive. We ate at the second sitting on a Friday night, when the place was nearly full, but could easily hear each other. The staff were very efficient and friendly, and clearly liked...More

This was a perfect night. A two hatted restaurant that is efficient with service but also very friendly. The food was to die for and if you go make sure you have the butter ice cream dessert with batching dessert wine. We had matching wines...More

I can't answer this directly as I only visited as a couple and we paid by credit card. But I would be doubtful that bill splitting would be the go at this restaurant. There were groups present when I was there but I didn't... More
