    Casual atmosphere, buzzing vibes. Fish was beautiful with perfectly cooked risotto. My partner’s steak was juicy and done medium just as she ordered. Chips were amazing but needed sauce to go with it. Overall a great meal but quite pricy

    We were quickly shown to our table and the food was delicious. The dishes were brought out at an unhurried pace and we enjoyed them thoroughly. The stars of the night were definitely the rump cap, which was cooked medium rare with Bernaise sauce, and the grilled brocolini.

    So glad we came here for a work event - enjoyed it so much that I returned 2 weeks later for another celebration. Thanks for all that jazz too! Fantastic ambience, food and service. Highly recommend the porterhouse. Highly recommend this for a date night.

    Love the tiny Xmas tree on the table. Sofa seats were comfortable. The snapper fish with clams was perfectly cooked with tasty sauce & asparagus. It’s the sauce that keeps us going back!

    Ready for the second hat! I thought it could not get any better but it did. On reflection, not surprising, though. Although very busy, everything was up to the high standard we have become used to.

    A really beautiful experience, celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary at a hidden gem of a restaurant. We enjoyed delicious food accompanied by equally tasty wines. Our waitress, Elisa, was helpful with menu suggestions and accompanying wines and we could not have enjoyed a more delicious meal with perfectly chosen complementary wines. Overall it was a really special evening.

    The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. We shared the roasted bone marrow, followed by the duck main course and desert. Each course was fabulous. We will look forward to an opportunity to dine at this restaurant again. Strongly recommended.

    Could be one of the best french restaurants in Melbourne. I had the $55 lunch (with duck leg as main) plus "escargots" (snail ????), all of them taste really good. Waiters and waitresses are polite as well. I will come back again.
