Great little place in Balmain, offering great food and a good choice, and a great bar list including a good selection of cocktails, paired with good service, this makes for a good experience. Well worth a visit.

Really nice place to chill out on Darling Street. Drinks can be a little expensive compared with neighbouring places

Table of 12. Very disappointing. Service was good, but mains very small for $30. And the mains were served over a period of 30 minutes. Half the table eating, other half waiting. I give a score of two because of the attentive wait staff but the food was appalling.

My husband and I eat out all the time in Sydney, Melbourne and in so many different places. We popped into this place thinking it looked so charming and the menu looked fine. But unfortunately the food was very disappointing. The Octopus was slimy and tasteless. The pizza crust ok but toppings were bordering on revolting. So much cheese and not much else. The cauliflower dish was just dull and looked like it had been sitting on a bench top for a week. Waitresses didn’t seem to care when we let them know! Don’t bother with this ordinary overpriced food!
