Nice buzz around the restaurant and family friendly. Bluff oysters to die for. Superbly cooked yellow fin. AND one of the most delicious desserts. The wine list is comprehensive and intereating. All of the staff were fab and we loved the evening thoroughly. Very impressed with the number of candles adorning desserts being served for birthdays and anniversaries- nice touch.

We were looked after very well and the food was excellent, just as good as previous occasions Some establishments can be somewhat indifferent to "Grab One" patrons but Mikano treated us as valued diners and we added extras accordingly (i.e. Matching wines), arguably the whole point of...

My wife and I had a special coupon to enjoy a 7 course gestation menu. I admit I was a tad cynical! However, in all ways it exceeded our expectations. We arrived and were shown to a window seat. If you go there see if you can get a window seat - the view is awesome. Across the helicopter landing... More

Sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with 1 of 7 courses. The concept of degustation is to taste all dishes and portions sizes are intended to give that very holistic deg experience. We will take your feedback on board and will be passed on to the Chef designing our next degustation. Thanks More
