First time visitor for an intimate dinner for two. We had wanted to try this place for a long time and finally decided to treat ourselves to a special Christmas night out.This isn't the kind of place we'd come to often, so when we do treat ourselves we want the food & experience to be memorable.
Unfortunately this was not that night. Honestly we couldn't fault the experience as a whole, the service was excellent, all of the staff buzzing around really made is feel special and nothing was too difficult. I think based on other similar restaurants we have been to our expectations were too high. We both had the degustation option at $150pp, and that included a total of 5 dishes.I'd have to say 2 of the dishes (marron & pig) were excellent could not be faulted. The other two were good not great. Desserts were excellent so I'd say 3 out of the 5 were excellent. The bread to start with was out of this world as was the two types of butter served with it.
We didn't opt for the matching wines at $118.00pp just felt this was excessive.To their credit, the dishes were all staggered and we ended up staying for over 3 hours and were not hassled at all.
I'm not sure we'd come back again, there are so many top shelf restaurants in Melbourne that when you pay $430 for two you expect to be wowed and this just did not happen.

What a fantastic experience. Me and partner went to celebrate my birthday, we opted for the tasting menu and pairing. It was such a great experience, amazing food, service and wine. We could not have asked for a better evening, would highly recommend to anyone and especially for celebrating special occasions.

Our experience was incredible. The bread was superb as was the butter. The entre’s were also amazing. Words can’t describe how succulent the duck was or the suckling pig. The desserts were outstanding. If you get the opportunity to dine here make it a priority.
