The service was excellent; efficient, unobtrusive, very helpful and with a smile. Great suggestions on the menu and the wine. The sommelier was very informed and the recommendation on the red was spot as was the white wine recommendation by our waitress. Meal was well spaced, we never feel rushed and everyone enjoyed their choices. And lastly, finish the meal off with the Affogato!!!

Phenomenal restaurant located right on the water at Sydney's gorgeous Balmoral beach. We had a window table with views of the water which was fantastic. Service was very attentive and friendly. Food was modern Australian done very well -one of the best examples I've seen of this. The highlight was the lamb for two - slow cooked that just melts off the bone. They also threw in free brocolini which was a lovely touch. Highly recommended, especially for lunch when you can enjoy the amazing view.

Best dish: gin-cured trout
