Dear Friends - User Reviews

damonjames:

Although a little expensive, this restaurant is perfect in all respects except for its portion control. The degustation menu ($115 pp) was spectacularly tasty but LAUGHABLY small. Sure, lots of courses, but each one the size of a few walnuts. I'm not a pig, but for a $300 meal for my wife and I, the least we want is to feel full. My wife is small framed lady and not a big eater and even she ate half of the packet of hot chips I bought on the way home, just to feel like I'd eaten something. The decor is refreshingly quaint at this place, even the music is retro. It's fantastic they've held on to some old 70's style but a real shame they haven't moved on from the 80's fad of nouvo cuisine. I reckon their portion control costs them far more in customers that it would do in a bit of extra food. What a shame.review  26/01/2012
