Awesome food. Try different varieties

love this place - great food & service. not fancy - just nice for a step-up casual meal with good friends. The space is a bit stark & can be loud - but otherwise comfortable.

Great lay out restaurant with a calming relaxed atmosphere. Food was lovely and a nice variety of modern dishea but not really big portion for more than two sharing. Food was quick and perfectly paced between dishes.

Food was nice but they did not have enough staff to provide adequate service.
Hi there Todd, and thanks for taking some time to leave us a little feedback. We will be putting more staff members on and training existing staff members more to ensure this doesn't happen again. We hope you'll come back and give us another go!

Beautiful venue and great food
Hi Lizzie, delighted to hear that you love the venue as much as we do. Come back in soon and try some more of our wonderful dishes, you can't miss the pate, intercostal beef or wood fired full fish in my opinion. Have a lovely day.

The food was phenomenal and the service was top notch. Despite using the 50% special, we were still treated like top customers.

4 different waiters who forgot orders, took 30mins to get a round of beers. we did the 50% off deal but food was underwhelming - esp the flank steak. Service was average until we complained to manager at bill time who offered us a beer in lieu of dessert.

We bought the 50% off deal but the food was still 100% !
