We loved the six courses, but there was simply not enough food. I mentioned I was still hungry, and we were grateful to receive a cheese platter, otherwise we were seriously considering going out for take away after. The service was excellent, although the first...More

I'm sorry you felt that the dishes weren't big enough. In eight years of running this restaurant you are the first to make such an observation. I'm sure the fish dish wasn't one sixth of the size of the a la carte version,although is is...More

thank you for taking the time to write a review. Im sure if you wanted a more french experience you could have not ordered the pork belly as it is clearly not a cliched French dish. The champagne was not, as you described opened in...More

Restaurant looked inviting so we thought we'd give it a go. Staff were very friendly. The mains we had were average but the desserts were yum. Wish we'd just ordered bread and dessert!

There is a reason this place is my favourite restaurant in Launceston, It serves delicious food, changing every season but always keeping the quality. The cost is on the higher side for a Launceston restaurant, but well worth it in my opinion. Treat yourself!

Formal bistro. Located in a converted house, 2 blocks from Launceston CBD. Menu terrific, including a degustation option. Very reasonably priced. Wine list not expansive, and menu very much on the red wine side of most peoples' preference. Meals very large for "fine dining' ....More

Nice dining environment and lovely staff. The dishes were nice too. But oysters were not fresh enough. Price was quite high. I guess much of the cost goes to decoration but not the food.

sorry you didn't think the oysters weren't fresh enough. our oysters are delivered alive and are shucked to order,I'm pretty sure you can't get much fresher than that.

The decor is nice enough and the staff were unobtrusive and helpful. The oysters were good - a choice of natural, kilpatrick and vietnamese. The venison was beautifully cooked and the recommended pinot matched perfectly. I was told that the lamb was so tender it...More
