Beautiful venue, service fabulous, wine list was very good. The food was exquisite, but unfortunately not enough of it as you would expect to receive following a $300.00 bill (wine was $60.00) - we were quite hungry when we left, however, the food was delicious.
Excellent food perfectly cooked. Very technical but lacking in atmosphere. I had the odd experience of enjoying the food but not so much the dining. The wine menu was also fantastic but very pricey. We were still very satisfied with our moderately priced local wine. Definitely go again but will save it for a special occassion.
Wow! Is all I can say about the completely poor service provided to us, we were seated next to a continually opened door on a slightly chilly Canberra night, but that wasn't the issue, we were seated at our table for 10 minutes without water, drinks or menu. There are a million waiters and all rushing around doing nothing but what I would call fluffing. We got tired of sitting there and decided we prefer to spend $300 odd dollars elsewhere, so got up and left. This restaurant will never see us again as we will continue to visit the real first class restaurants in Canberra with similar names of the vegetable / herb names!
One of the best in Canberra, which has lots of competition. Service and selection are superb; matching the wine list. Good place to see, appreciate and enjoy Aussie hospitality for Canberra first time visitors.
