It was my wife's birthday and she had a wonderful time. The food was unique, great flavours, well presented, the place was nice and warm. My son wanted to try a Daiquirí and it was almost done as in the Floridita of Havana. Also the staff was the best I have seen in Canberra, polite, professional and extremely helpful.

Nice venue and good service, we had the works (degustation and matched wines), personally think the focus was on presentation to the point that the food was not quite at the top of its game but still a nice night out.
