Dined with 50% off for degustation menu which is good value. Otherwise a bit pricey. Would be better if 50 % discount applies to a la carte menu to try out other dished

Great food, great venue and good service. The set menu was great, no weak dishes. Unfortunately our main was forgotten and took a while to come out but we weren't in any rush so didn't ruin our night. Would go back.

Hubby and I had the autumn set menu before seeing the ballet at the opera house. We were so full! The food was delicious and the side of broccoli was amazing!!!! At 50% off it was great value.

Food was amazing. Great range of wines. Loved my Poor Tom G&T. Service was good (but the restaurant got really busy so wasn’t excellent). Will definitely be coming back!
Hi there Carmen and thanks for leaving us some informative feedback. Fantastic to hear that you really enjoyed your experience, and we will work on giving excellent service, even when we are very busy. Look forward to hosting you again soon.

The gastronomic delights of the Autumn Set Menu were fantastic. And looking at the open cooking area added to the food ambiance. The presentation of the six course degustation menu was also fantastic. Service was a little inconsistent but mostly energetic. The 50% discount on food makes it very good value for money
Thanks for your detailed feedback Mark, and lovely to hear you really enjoyed your experience. We also have a fabulous a la carte menu that is excellent, it would be great to have you back in to try it.

Beautiful food, but would have felt expensive if it hadn’t been the 50% off discount. Service was slow, it felt like they were under staffed
Hi there Lisa, thanks for leaving some feedback. Apologies that you found the service to be slow- you are right, we had a few less staff on that night due to last minute car troubles. Rest assured we normally have enough staff who provide excellent service, and this isn't the norm. We hope you will come back soon to experience this.
