This is a fun night where the chefs create new options and you are in their hands. Only 1 of the many courses was disappointing - the paua was rubbery and tasteless. Still a fun experience

We went to a Tuesday experimental menu degustation. Not all experiments work, but this really did. Wide range of interesting plates with matching wine which they got just right. Hope they continue doing this!
