Total experience was very good. A lengthy cocktail list would have been nice.

Wonderful old style restaurant where the food is sublime, the service outstanding and you can still hear yourself speak. It has been a favourite of mine for 25 years. The food continues to evolve and you are always assured of a wonderful meal. Definitely one of Melbourne’s best restaurants.

From the moment we walked in, we felt welcome and almost at home. Service was immaculate and the food was divine. Every mouthful of every plate was like a sensation of flavours. Will definitely be back and highly recommend the Express Lunch option with add ons.

This is one of Melbourne’s best fine dining restaurants. Food is exceptionally good on every visit and service is always perfect. The outstanding service provided by John, who really cares for his customers and their overall experience, is greatly valued and appreciated.

Fish was overcooked, vegetables undercooked, but we like it enough to give it another chance
