They are expensive. But unlike others, they are filing (big servings) and they try hard to please. Variety is good too. And they are my fave bakery (lamington, bearclaw).

All the food selection and quality from taste to ingredients to culinary standard to staff services are just impeccable! I think they command a big respect and following among the local who’s who high society.

Lovely restaurant, we ate here tiwce during our 4 night stay in a hotel nearby. Nice terrace for drinks before dinner and kids welcome, although I wouldn't bring very young ones as quite a romantic, quite setting. Food and wine both good and resonably priced....More
