Opening night after a change of ownership and a modest refurb, the new owners (Eightysix of Braddon) were not going to fail. And they didn't. They have moved a moderately scruffy suburban restaurant up to a high quality restaurant. The service was top notch -...More

A French Australian styled cuisine, beautifully presented, creative and challenging and delicious. Definitely a cut above the rest. I suggest ordering several entrée dishes to share and skip ordering mains. Almost all the dishes come in entrée size and this way you get to taste...More
