Was a special night for my husband and I as we were celebrating 4 years since our first date. Sake is a favourite restaurant of ours and we have visited in Melbourne as well. Superb food, wine, cocktails and service.

Wow! Great food drinks service and presentation all round. Just what I have come to expect from the restaurants wanting to survive on the pier. Chefs degus was to die for, be prepared to pick up the pace if you are accompanied by a small eater. 10/10
