    The bar was chill, quiet and relaxed. We were really impressed with the food, and the wine was the nicest pinot gris I've tasted yet. Very attentive and friendly staff, a memorable experience and highly recommended.

    Great food, great service and great wine. Would recommend this wine bar if you’re in East Melbourne. I highly recommend the truffle bread, meatballs and gnocchi!

    The food was absolutely delicious. We shared the French Connection, Sweet and Salty Almond Clusters and Salmon and Barramundi croquettes. Really good!

    A hidden gem! It's not a very big fancy restaurant. There are few choicest items on the menu. An excellent personalised service with rustic ambiance!
