Food and service were good, but a little overpriced. If you are very hungry, please go to other restaurant.

We went with friends to this restaurant. We had a booking and were shown to our table as soon as we arrived. From then onwards it was down hill all the way. The menu was not extensive, but it contained something for all of us....More

We went for dinner and had an all round excellent dining experience. Great location overlooking the Crown esplanade by the side of the Yarra River and very enjoyable decor; certainly more than a touch of a French bistro. Relaxed and charning i our view. Thoroughly...More

Whilst the service was exceptional, our meals were not. My salmon was in part raw, and whilst I appreciate that this may be the new norm, why are guests not asked how they would like it cooked as with steaks? It was not an inexpensive...More
