The food was excellent but the service was terrible.Our waiter seemed to be in a bad mood we had to ask him to take our order,ask for oil for our table,ask again for them to take our order for desert and coffee.While we were having our coffee he decided to clear our table a little rude I thought.Even though the food was excellent I would think twice about returning,not a great atmosphere

A very good dining experience - great views, attentive service, and very good food at excellent prices.

When we first arrived the restaurant was nearly empty (we had booked an early meal) and we found the service was good. However as the restaurant became busier service became slower. Towards the end of the night we sat waiting 30 mins after they had cleared our main meal plates to even get a dessert menu and then even longer to get the bill even though we were clearly finished - this made the night drag out. The meal itself was nice but there wasn't much of it. I had been warned about the portion size and they were right - my husband could have eaten twice the amount on his plate, so even though we both had an entree, main and dessert we could have had another snack on the way home. We both agreed that apart from the view (which was lovely) we could have had the same meal for half the price at our local fine dining restaurant which we had visited a few nights earlier.

We went for saturday lunch and the food was really lovely. The service was pleasant but slow! I think they were understaffed on that day. But cannot fault the food or wine. The view is great too. Better to be at an outside table for lunch.

The atmosphere a bit stark, could be soften up with some small pictures or hanging plants as there's very little hanging space in restaurant.

The location and the food were really good. service was quick and efficient. The place was too noisy for a friday night out that we could hardly hear each other.

A bit noisy but probably still within the average Saturday night out in Sydney. Great food if some sources and dressings being a bit too rich. Cordial & friendly service. The view to die for.
