Menu was well prepared. Tasted ok. Good service.
Glad to hear you enjoyed the service- we have plenty more things to sample off the menu, and it is always changing as we are a seasonal restaurant that changes its menu based on what foods are right for right now. Would love to have you back in to try the delicious a la carte menu.

Eggplant and prawn dish was the highlight of the evening. The waiters were a bit slow but all in all a good experience.

We previously dined at this restaurant when it was number one Bent Street. I must say that this visit was not as good as the first. Some dishes were pretty good such as the oysters and lamb but others were a little underwhelming eggplant and lettuce graters dish. Service still really good .
Hi there, and thanks for taking the time to leave us some detailed feedback, it's always great to know more about how people feel about each dish. Similar to No.1 Bent Street, we still have a fresh, local and dynamic menu that adapts to the seasons, so you can expect to see many beautiful new dishes, and also the return of some of the No.1 Bent Street favourites. Would be great to see you again to try some other options - always happy to make some recommendations about our favourite dishes. Have a great day.

Can’t fault the meal - everything was perfect.
Hi Jessie, was great to have you and your sister in with us on Friday night, and beautiful to hear you had a great time. You'll have to come back in again soon to try some of those other dishes you liked the look of. Have a great week.
