The excitement and anticipation that comes with growing vegetables, and creating innovative plates is translated to our guests through our menu.

The plant to plate narrative is at the centre of what we do; our chefs show our local organic farmers a nod of respect towards the passion and patience required to grow a plant, in each dish they create. The seasons dictate our menu, with passion, flavour and creativity at the heart of the operation.

This passion flows through our love of organic, and low intervention wines from small producers, carefully selected and paired with our food.

Our very own indoor vertical farm is our most recent dedication to sustainable practices, allowing us to grow our own bespoke exotic herbs and aromatics for our hyper-seasonal food and cocktail menus, with zero food miles and incomparable flavour.

    Great food. Such a range of flavours and all wonderfully cooked. 6 small plates and 2 large plates between 4 of us with room for dessert. Attentive but not intrusive service and a nice setting. Not the cheapest place but still good value for the quality of the food.

    We had great hopes for this. The menu was enticing, the concept spot on, but it sadly fell short. Our starters arrived after our mains which was a bit odd but we could work with that. The Asparagus special, the asparagus was cooked to perfection but the polenta was tasteless. Ambience was shabby chic and pretty cool, a few plants and some warmth in the back dining room would be good. In short; overall, the food was ok, a 6/10, beautifully presented but very expensive for what it was.

    The food was really inventive and distinctive, the mushroom dish we had was quite divine. The decor and ambiance is great, really chilled. However the service was desperately slow, I didn’t feel well attended to. Maybe we caught them on an off night when they were short staffed in the kitchen I don’t know but there was a lot of waiting. Prices are above average I would say, the food is special but the service needed to be slicker…..

    The roast potatoes were over cooked and rock hard on the outside. The cabbage was overcooked too. I did like the roast celeriac dish and the pudding was very nice.

    This was recommended to us and it didn't fail to disappoint. Lovely, polite yet relaxed staff who knew the menu inside out and more than happy to chat and go the extra mile with drinks or recommendations. Food was delicious with a great variety of flavours. Portions were a good size too, never really sure when the menu says small plates but we had 3 and a large plate and that was perfect. Lovely interiors, try and get the upstairs window seat and watch the dramas of Western road unfold!
