Thank you the selected menu which includes set items along with choice of mains. Then take a recommendation of wine and the evening is assured to be complete.

It is a while since we ate here - and it shouldn't have been. The food and service simply lived up to - and beyond - its 2 hat rating - and at prices well below Sydney's one hat standard. The evolution of the modern...More

One of the very best degustation restaurants I have been to. I take my elderly mother there every year or so, and the staff remember us, and give wonderful, helpful and informative service. They make my mum feel very special. The food and wine are...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
