Loving the food, wine and friendly staff. A little hard to get attention from my waiter when I tried to order a second drink and it wasn’t peak time at 3pm.

Great location. Good waitress. Seem to struggle with the food here considering it’s considered fine dining. Had a pleasant afternoon though. Efficient waitress.

Toothfish is still my favourite but they have somewhat changed the way they did the tuna tartare, still nice but I prefer the old way.
