Nice food let down by poor service, The food, although on the pricey side was tasty, although this didn't make up for the steak being cold. Some of the unprofessional wait staff appeared to be hired from either the local student population or maybe back packers on holidays? Things like wine being spilt during the initial tasting and then the... More

Went here to celebrate with friends. Was suitably impressed. The service was excellent, the wine choice was good and the food was very good. We sat outside on the verandah on a balmy Sydney evening. I had duck and it was moist and so full of flavour. My husband had steak and he said it was so tender and delicious.... More

I had high expectations but was totally disappointed : medium rare steaks were medium well and smothered in sauce, beef tartare had no seasoning, salmon carpaccio flavourless and an extremely small helping. The highlight was the fresh salad! Average service with only one waiter clearly experienced. Over priced and underwhelmed.

Nice ambience. Wines and beer are beautiful and the waitstaff are fantastic. The food is not bad. But perhaps a tad overpriced for bistro food.

It was a dinner for 4 - 3 of us had fish and 1 duck. All the dishes were prepared and presented to perfection and presented in a delicate way. The taste was astonishing - superb. Dessert - a strawberry soufflé - was wonderfully fluffy and easy to eat (though a bit sweater than what I like) I highly recommend... More

Came at the end of lunch service and grabbed a bottle of wine and some nibbles: steak tartar - very good, chicken liver pate - solidly good and spanner crab omlete - excellent. We had a wonderful welcome and extremely pleasant staff. Food was overall excellent: can fully recomend.

Lunch surprised on the upside in every course. I was here for Let's do Lunch, however was also tempted by the entrées and desserts, and thus indulged in 3 courses. Absolutely no complaints about food, service or ambience, portions were generous, sauces tasty, and great bread - complementary, unlike so many restaurants these days.
