Second time visiting here and the food was great like my first visit! However, service was quite slow. I saw two waiters plus the host on the floor when I visited for lunch. I would visit again though. I love the outdoor area and the fact that it is dog friendly. I was told there is even a dog menu so will definitely come back with my dog.
Hi Wendy, Thank you for dining with us on Sunday and appreciate your feedback which has been passed on to the team. We look forward to welcoming you back (with your dog) soon!

Food and drinks great as usual, service a tad slow but most likely due to staff shortage and a wedding party happening on the night.

Service a little slow hence no rush to give the table back. Relaxing and really enjoyable. Staff were very accommodating and friendly.

Whilst the service was a little on the slow side, that could be excused given it was Easter Sunday, however the menu, staff and quality of food was excellent. Somewhat of a hidden gem amongst Sydney’s many great restaurants and a great spot for special occasion or a romantic first date.

Excellent meal and service... one of the best restaurants in Sydney. Food was amazing, great cocktails and good wine too. Great bar and restaurant, not too noisy, nice atmosphere, you could enjoy the food and relax. Step outside after dinner and the bridge is right there, lit up at night for a romantic walk afterwards. Perfect.

Sunday Lunch - what a great setting on a sunny afternoon sitting outside enjoying the weather. Service started a little slow & we thought 'oh no' then all of a sudden it went up ten notches & continued like that throughout the day. We opted for the six course tasting plate starting with the Kingfish with the signature chocolate dessert to end with - would have to say the Kangaroo with the black pudding was the standout dish although all six were brilliantly presented. You could not fault the delicious taste of each dish with a nice bottle of Pinot Noir to keep us happy! Thank You we will be back
Hi Ray, Thank you for dining with us on Sunday, I'll be sure to pass on your kind words to the team! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
