Loved our meal at this lovely find. Away from the crowds and hype of downtown, we loved the atmosphere of this house converted to a restaurant. I highly recommend the beef!

Our waiter was very pleasant but we felt that we were being rushed from the beginning. Our reservation was for 8.15, clearly the last ones in and as we were finishing our meal sections of the restaurant were being closed down, tables reset for the next time and the clatter of cutlery and crockery from the kitchen was very unprofessional....

Thanks to Trip Advisor we tried this restaurant out and we were not disappointed - booking essential. The food was exceptional and the staff were very friendly. Had we been staying longer, I feel sure that we would have returned for another meal.

Came here with a group of 10. Last minute booking but no trouble here! All got the $55 for three courses. Delicious food and good ambiance. Perfect for a large group who want to have a good chat over dinner!

The ambiance of this Restaurant was accentuated by the personal service given by the wait staff, despite it being a very busy service. The Menu offered something for everyone, and the Wine List complimented the Meal Options perfectly. We left feeling well fed, well looked after, and extremely spoiled. Awesome Restaurant that never fails to live up to it's promises.
