The wine list and drinks are very good and we found the staff really welcoming. We had a table on the window and found the restaurant ambience very calm and relaxing. Our meals were 10 out of 10 and we were so impressed. The chefs are really doing a fantastic job. It is very obviously very fresh, beautiful presentation, and a decent amount of food. The service was excellent and we couldn’t fault anything.

Enjoyed a lovely evening with friends at this beautiful location – food was plentiful and delicious and service very attentive. We had a reserved table near a window with views over Lake Burley Griffin. Well worth a visit for a special occasion!
