Far better than the heavily promoted supposedly best local "butchery". Meals are presented with style. The wait staff are professionally friendly and a great wine list.

Great meal, food exceptional - Bluff oysters amazing, chicken, pork belly and specials beautiful! Fine dining food and $$$$$$. Waitress lovely, although it took most of the meal to get the red wine opened and poured! Amazing view IF before dark.
