“Terrible food and service”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Avoid at all costs. Service was terrible! Food was even worse... Had to go fetch the waiter to order, bill came with hidden extras. There was 4 of us and each ordered a different meal, all were unedible...

“Very nice. Very, very expensive”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

The food is good. The location is great. The price is a tad ridiculous. I guess their rent is huge? I enjoyed the food very much but will not return because of price. Not good on a windy or wet day, unless you want to squeeze inside.

“Super view and nice food...”
Reviewed 2 January 2012

We go here every time in Sydney and its good every time in terms of food. This trip however, and its not the restaurant's fault, but a rather obnoxious man who seemed to know the staff very well (I did wonder if he was their boss or some sort of ‘protection racquet’) clearly did not know that certain language is not what you want to hear when having lunch!! This guy clearly wanted everyone to know that he was on his mobile and made had no problem swearing constantly. When I looked over my shoulder, after what seemed like the hundredth swear word, I got a rather rude ‘ what the [--] are you looking at’. He was the only issue for me on this particular trip.
