Although the other reviews said it was good, I was pretty unimpressed. The venue was really chick although dark. We were in the back room which was still pretty good. The menu was pretty restricted and nothing actually caught my interest. I ended up choosing...More

Fabulous place, this restaurant used to be an illegal gaming house run by Melbourne's underworld, now it's a great restaurant. Flavoursome food and an interesting wine list (mostly all organic). Excellent staff and the fireplace makes for a warm, cosy environment. One small criticism, we...More

Lovely local. Wish it was my local! We ate with friends who live nearby. Shared lots of starters, shared one main. Nothing fazed the staff who were warm and professional. Delicious food. Excellent wine list.
