Lazy Sydney Sunday Afternoon Our second visit did not disappoint. Wonderful personalities of the waitstaff immediately set the tone. Food is all it promises - fresh, thoughtful. Who else gives you petit fois in a gorgeous box with coffee and a signature lavender bay martini card with your bill. Definitely will be back

Very small menu, but that is, to me, probably preferable to pages and pages of choice.
