This place is amazing, great atmosphere, the perfect place for a cold, Melbourne winter night. The quality is second to none. I have dined at the top end restaurants and this place gets 10 out of 10 for me, the best by far.

Excellent service - attentive yet un-intrusive. Food was plenty and the chefs menu showcased both delicate and robust flavours. A wonderful, intimate dining setting for a cool spring night. Will need to come back again!
