We had not booked but were warmly welcomed. Great service, food and ambience. We will go again without a doubt! Shared plates is the way to go, everything we tried was delicious. Great wine too!

Loved our visit here! The botanical theme creates ambience, the food is creative, modern, well balanced flavours and reasonably priced. Service is friendly and efficient. Shared plates and a great drinks menu made for a very enjoyable evening. Our favourite dish was the kingfish.
