We shared a table recently for Sunday lunch with 6 family members. The food was imaginative and delicious and the staff very friendly and capable. We started the meal with various small exquisite entrée dishes. Our main meals were 2 Pork Roasts, 1 Duck (Asian style) and 2 Snapper dishes. We all agreed the food was exceptionally good and we...

Three of us...me, hubby and adult son went on a Friday night in the middle of December, having booked at very late notice. It was not overly busy, but not empty either. Main thing is that we could hear each other talk. We had a lovely meal, all having two courses. The fellas had the duck, and the turkey special,... More

Gorgeous little restaurant on leafy Albert Park and the interesting menu was varied. We six chose a wide selection of entrees and mains from the specials menu. We all agreed that the food was exemplary. The service was average at best, requests were made for menus and coffee and the food took forever to be served. And that was a... More

This was my second time, and it was my wife's birthday treat (her third visit), and we had the most remarkable meal. The staff were brilliant - they knew it was a birthday dinner, and we are given an appetiser (salmon in a light crust) - sensational - it really set the tone. Our entree's were generous and delicious (I... More

We went here for a Sunday roast, this place is located across the road from the Albert park primary school. We ordered the roast beef and chicken, both were very tasty and the service was fantastic. The restaurant has great decor and i would say it's a small to medium size restaurant. Overall a great place and food and we'll... More

Stylish but cosy restaurant where the service is always good with changing seasonal menu. Looking very smart after recent new decor, although has always looked good. Nice to go with friends if wanting a catch up as its not noisy, as are some places, or if just wanting an intimate dinner for two. On our recent visit three of us... More

Always love eating here be it with my wife or a work dinner. As the restaurant is small the service is great. The food menu changes with the seasons so every time you come here it's always a new experience eating great food.
