Meh. For how expensive the food was, I really expected it to taste better. Everything was beautifully plated but it was very bland. Our group of four all agreed the bread with the salted butter was the best part. We had pretty much one of everything and it was all just "meh".

We were running 30 mins late so we were very grateful they readjusted the booking for us. Welcoming and kind service. Nice selections of wine and cocktails. We shared a lot of the platters. Small servings but very tasty and satisfying. Try the octopus and salads. Elegant setting yet still ambient. Definitely recommend

before arriving, we were advised about unexpected problems with their eftpos and asked if we wished to proceed. from our arrival to leaving, the service was friendly, efficient and very receptive to requests. the food was innovative and excellent, as good as a 3 hat restaurant we had been to a few nights earlier. the wine list was also comprehensive

Do yourself a favor and visit this lovely restaurant. The service is unmatched. The staff truly cares about your experience managing to be completely professional yet friendly and welcoming. The food is absolutely amazing – everything we tasted was absolutely delicious. It’s a great experience. The ambiance is very welcoming and charming. Amazing wines, food and service. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and make great recommendations. Absolutely the best meal we had in while at VU. They even have some vegetarian and vegan option. Big plus for us, big win for VU !
