Booked this place for a friend's birthday lunch after seeing high reviews. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. Cocktails was tasty. As it was lunch service, wasn't busy and service was attentive and highly appreciated the bonus dessert for the birthday girl. Highly recommended!

Food was excellent and staff very attentive without being invasive. Thorughly enjoyed the evening. Only suggestion would be a a few more wine options - limited selections in certain categories like Pinot Gris and Merlots but good choices in the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon

The food was exceptional as was the service with the personal attention afforded by management and waiting staff. A great feed at a comparative cost and in a delightful atmosphere.

It was a lovely lunch I had with my wife and we have decided to come back to taste other dishes and food.
