    Warmly welcomed by the charismatic staff, modern and open dining area with scenic views of the esplanade. Menu ranges from clean and suttle to bold and punchy with something for all tastes. A very pleasant experience, highly recommend the team here, they are excellent at what they do 5/5

    food was great , but arrived and had difficulty getting the attention of a waiter to sit us down, even though there weren't many customers there.

    Slow and inattentive service, wait staff did not seem to care. The food was below expectations for the price: cafe level quality entree and mains.

    Was a lovely evening. Had the chef's set 6 course and can highly recommend. George was a attentive but not intruesive waiter . Easy to chat to and knew the menu. He definitely made the evening more enjoyable as we chatted about his home country.

    Fruit platter for dessert was hardly eaten the watermelon tasted awful - very disappointing was a very standard platter Service was below average Also there was a set menu for our group booking. Half of the menus on our table read for Lunch not Dinner which was confusing We would’ve much preferred the extensive dinner menu to order from which needs to be specified for group bookings online that there is ONLY set menus. Great cocktails The chilli beef meal was awesome for flavour however the beef was chewy which was disappointing
