A pleasant restaurant for a solo meal while on business. I enjoyed the ambiance, an excellent barramundi and the gorgonzola cheese platter - all well prepared and sumptuous.

The people, the food, the service are superb. We found this place by accident, but it will be our dining choice on purpose next time!

You could wear a dress. It's Melbourne so feel free to express yourself. This restaurant is fairly casual although lots of people there after work wearing suits and work dresses etc.

I agree with 111Jenny. It is a great place to take your time and enjoy their attention to detail and great service. However it would always be best to check with the staff there.
