    My food was excellent but my partner's sushi didn't taste fresh and his two of his lamb lollipops were undercooked while the other two were overcooked. Not sure how that happens.. There was also a family with two small, very loud children sat right next to us, when there were other open tables and we were trying to have a date. Wasn't exactly the atmosphere I was expecting for an almost $200 bill.

    Delicious food, great ambiance! I ordered the vegan sushi and wontons. 10/10. For dessert I had the raspberry mousse. I expected it to be sweet but it was a perfect blend of sweet and citrus flavours. I will definitely come back to eat here.

    Absolutely best dining experience we have had in ages. The whole evening was fantastic. A knowledgeable and friendly waitress. Every course delightfully prepared and well presented. Cooked to perfection. Accompanied by wine from the nearby Bishops Cellar that was outstanding. The pricing for this exquisite meal was very reasonable and the restaurant itself is so relaxed, well appointed and a view second to none. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

    We were seated very close to another couple, so sadly not much privacy to talk. Food was good and service was quick. Every time we come here there seems to be something on the desert menu they don’t have, and it’s already a very small menu.

    If you have a shellfish allergy do not go here. Having a shellfish allergic reaction after eating selections containing no shellfish at this establishment the restaurant was contacted to identify this issue and they have not responded. This lack of action is very disappointing.
