    As good as anything in Lonsdale St without the bustle! I had a great meal, and was well looked after by the friendly team.

    The staff were professional and polite then when associated with the ambience of the restaurant were exceptional. It would be remiss of me not to acknowledge the professional Chef and his imaginative meals. The meals were top quality. The presentation was five stars. The whole experience was outstanding. The associated cost was more than acceptable. I recommended the restaurant to the reception staff at the Novotel Hotel and the visiting Warrior Rugby League Team. The Venue is large enough to accommodate business functions as well.

    We first ordered some cocktails at the bar which were very disappointing. When we sat down at the table we had three attempts to order drinks from their menu, but kept coming back with not available. We then ordered some share entree's and our main course. After a short wait our mains started turning up, we asked what happened to the entree's, and was told they forgot to put them through on the order. Because we had ordered off the specials menu, we were told it was the last duck dish they had so we just had the mains. The food we had was very nice and they offered us a free cocktail as apology for the mix up, overall very disappointing night.

    It's hard to find good seafood in Canberra, but this place definitely has it.

    I went for dinner with my husband, the place is clean and nice. The food was exceptional, the chef done an amazing job. also the owners were there and around the whole time to make sure that we are enjoying the food and drinks. the prices were reasonable compared to the quality of food and proffsional service. I would definitely reccomend this place and going to visit again.

    Had someone really close to us overlooking our table, made it feel clausterphobic. The food took a delayed amount of time, I did see the kitchen working their hardest though so it wasn't for lack of effort it seemed. Everyone's food came out around the same time. Would have been really nice to get treated to a small desert or something. The food was really good, a tad smaller portion size than would have been preferred given the circumstances. We were also told a month or so beforehand that the restaurant had lobster available, and found out that was no longer on the menu.

    Entrée was lovely. Oysters delicious. Mains were ok but similar to a home cooked standard. Staff were friendly and made an effort. Cocktails average.

    Very good wine selection, oysters, and great pork belly. I saw the duck and I would expect for 38 odd dollars a juicy Fat Ridden Duck Breast you can't easier get in the supermarket. I've only ever found this in Southern France so my expectations are a bit high. However, serving a cheap duck leg was pretty ordinary for the price. Food for thought. Still recommended for a fancy dinner. Service, timing , heat, pork belly, wine selection, ambiance all really great.

    I like to have a meal here when on a business trip to Canberra. The food is always very good. I particularly like the oysters (in 6 ways) and the Barramundi. Everyone is very friendly. Highly recommended!

    Very enjoyable evening! Food was delicious, the wide range of wine, spirits, and liquers never fails to disappoint - my friends and I had a great time, and look forward to returning soon!

    Fantastic staff who are super friendly and efficient. Food is great with a good range to choose from with many seafood options ,best tempura prawns we have ever had. Love that there are lots of small plates that can be shared to large meals to choose from. So lucky to have found this place a real gem that we couldn't believe we didn't know about. We will definitely be returning. We have only been to dinner but this would be nice for after work or late night drinks.
