    Sad though that the menu has now become so limited. We used to enjoy a much wider variety of food. Was still very tasty. The t bone steak (share plate) is unfortunately not its $ worth. Overall a good experience as always

    Fabulous Family Father's Day. Tasty fresh food, and really good full bodied coffee. Friendly staff and service. More expensive than some breakfasts, but hopefully some of that extra goest to the lovely staff. We will be back.

    The crab pasta dish was amazing. The best oysters and my husband had the steak and it just melted in your mouth. Amazing service too!

    A large hotel-based restaurant, with a warm, clubbish atmosphere, very pleasant on a cold evening. The staff were courteous, mature and professional. The menu offered a good variety; and our two different pasta mains were well above average in quality, flavour and presentation. The drinks list emphasised cocktails; we were pleased with the choice of wines.

    Outstanding service, beautiful venue, lovely food. We both had the wagu for main and octopus for entree which was delicious. We were spoilt rotten for our anniversary and will certainly be back!

    A perfect night out, food was absolutely incredible. Atmosphere was delightful. We both got the rib eye and it was perfect. Only niggle was that I had ordered a wine before our meals came and it arrived after I had finished my dinner after I had requested the waitress to follow up with the order. The same happened with my husband's beer. However, I understand for a lot of staff it was the first night back after a long shut down period for COVID. Thank you for such an excellent night, it was so nice to be out and about again. Will definitely be back soon.

    From the time we arrived until we left we had excellent service! Perfect way to spend our Valentine’s Day dinner out. We had the linguine with crab and the lamb Ragu, and we highly recommend both dishes. Great dinner out!

    It’s a well know restaurant, though needs to get back to its old ways. Love the location just needs the old atmosphere back, and the waiters need to be retrained.

    The waiters and waitresses were slow to the responses from the customers. The starter dishes like Tuna Tartare gave me a stomachache. The atmosphere was nice but there was no air conditioning thus it was hot.

    From the time we arrived the service was amazing! The atmosphere was incredible. Large opened area with tables spaced out well. It was busy but not noisey allowing conversation. The food was absolutely perfect we could not fault all three courses. The oysters were so fresh followed by the eye fillet that melted in your mouth and the swordfish that was to die for. The side dishes of fresh steamed seasonal greens, the tasty mushrooms were our favourite. Followed by dessert. Selection "A Kubrick Era Dessert" the perfect choice for a unique dessert experience. We look forward to dining here again. ENJOY!

    Fabulous decor and great food. Not somewhere that would be your regular haunt, but fun for a special occasion. The service was reasonably attentive - perhaps a little pretentious, but not enough to detract from the experience.

    The food is always very good and the wine selection is pretty impressive. The bar makes good cocktails too. It's not cheap, but sometimes that doesn't matter.
