I had an incredible dining experience at the restaurant! From the moment I walked in, the ambiance was warm and inviting. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable, helping us navigate the menu and suggesting some truly delightful dishes. We had the lobster roll, ocean trout, beetroot ravioli, octopus, pasta and sprouts. The variety of options catered to different tastes, and the presentation of each dish was a work of art. The flavours were thoughtfully balanced, and the ingredients tasted incredibly fresh. Overall, this restaurant offers not just a meal, but a culinary experience that excites the senses. I can't wait to return and explore more of their culinary delights!

Deepak Aryal

"I seldom write reviews but this place was so good it seemed a shame not to share. The food was amazing - four of us had different entrees, mains, and desserts and now feel like we have to go back and try the rest of the menu. The beef carpaccio is a must followed by the salmon special and to finish the coconut panna cotta all washed down with a chilled Bordeaux....and that was just my selection. My friends all loved their meals too. The service was attentive and friendly but not intrusive. The decor suits the menu and the wine selection is excellent. All up - we will be back and we suggest you take the time out to visit. Just an FYI - it's not cheap but it is worth every penny."

Kathy Childs

"We celebrated our first Father's Day here and were not disappointed, the atmosphere and staff were amazing. Our favorite were the beef tartare and the duck breast, the rabbit ravioli is also a must try! Overall very happy with our experience, we will be back soon to try all the other dishes as well! Kid-friendliness: There are high chairs available, we were also able to get in with our big pram without a problem."

Shiman Fong

"One of the best places that I have been to. The staff are just so attentive, the moment I finish my cup of water, it is immediately refilled. The food is heavenly, gnocchi were the pillowest and fluffiest and softest gnocchi I have ever had. The duck was cooked to perfection. Sauces were amazing, it was so balanced, and never a moment was overpowering. The tiramisu was also amazing."

Jed Mai

"Amazing food love the beef tartare, lobster roll, and the famous beetroot ravioli as an entree. The prawn risotto is a winner for us the balance of flavours just perfect for spring. The dessert is very comforting with the homemade baked cheesecake and panna cotta simple but delicious. The wine list has covered everything If you are an adventure person and can try a few things differently. However, on that note also lots of wine by the glass with Coravin pour, i had some wine matches and was flexible and chatted to the owner. The deco is cute and has a feel. The services are top-notch at a reasonable price. All aspects are 5 stars, definitely will be back. Thank you for a great experience."

"I went for a Friday night dinner with a friend, and the food, service, and atmosphere were impeccable. They were not busy, so the food came out in such a timely manner and was cooked to perfection. The Steaks in particular stood out, but all of our meals were amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant."

Tawann Sj

Service was very attentive, professional, and courteous. Each of our enjoyed dinners was well prepared and presented with a clever wine list, including the by-the-glass selection, which added to the friendly European setting and atmosphere with a Port Melbourne window visage. Both options of private booths or open table dining allowed effective conversations. Prices are reasonable. A lovely place to have a get-together or just call by.
