excellent purchase

We will be back. The service was professional and polite and the food was brought out inperfect timing even though the resterant was very busy and booked out. All five of us bought a mixture of things off the menu and couldnt fault the food.

Outstanding Experience

The food and service was outstanding. Scallops and pork belly was succulent, the steak was mouth watering and the brownie was decadent. Will definitely be back.

Great meal out

I treated my in laws to dinner and they said that this was the best cooked steak they have eaten out. Unfortunately there was no chocolate pate as it's obviously so popular it gives them another excuse to go back.

It was ok. Entre was very late coming out as was the drinks. Arrived at 5.45 and received foor with drinks at 6.30. Anyway food was ok. The streak and scallops were cooked to perfection. Garlic bread is delicious! Would probably not go again for the price and portions but its a fancy restaurant good for a special occasion.
