One of the best dining experiences I’ve had recently. We were a bit rushed because we were off to the theatre but the staff were amazing and quick and the meal was bursting with flavour! Will be back

Degustation menu is really good value- food is delicious and portions quite generous. Only the service was unfortunately lacking, but they did have the good grace to take the charge off the bill for drinks that took about an hour to arrive.

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!
Kind regards, responded on Fri, 14 Jun 2019

A great pre- theatre venue in a beautiful setting at Walsh Bay. Our pre- theatre menu was delicious and really good value. Being so close to the STC theatre in Hickson Road made it a really enjoyable evening. Thank you.

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.

Stunning views and attentive service. I chose to have lunch there with my partner after having a work function once and loved the view. The menu is quite impressive and the food was wonderful. I enjoyed the Chawan Mushi a lot !
