Good to see Philippe Mouchel supervised each dish before sending out to the customers. We shared a snapper main course & told the waitress. Chef divided into 2 servings with beautiful sauces, clam and vegetables. The fish was a big piece even when divided into 2 servings. Our entrees were good quality and good quantity. Service was great and timely as my friend had a plane to catch. Very satisfied.

Enjoyed my evening meal I would have scored higher if the service was a little quicker in the beginning and there was a large table behind us with about eight children under ten down our end of their table Why would you not just take the kids to Pancake Parlour Thanks Ronald Rodger

We both ordered the lunch special. The onion soup and the rotisserie chicken were well up to Philippe,s very high standard. This lunch must be the best value on Melbourne. Great food ambience and style. Koo Hu
