We are in the people business, we live by the motto “everyone deserves to get looked after”. And although we served customers all day on International Women’s Day, cleaned, cooked, took orders and dressed the restaurant again and again, we did it together, respecting each other and also looking after one another. We know that it starts with the people around us, but every day is international women’s day, we live by it all days of the year. Our staff are great humans and we thank them for the way they conduct themselves. We leave you with an image of a great woman, Melina. She is everything we want for the future #iwd

  • This place is amazing, great atmosphere, the perfect place for a cold Melbourne winter night. The quality is second to none. I have dined at top end restaurants and this place gets 10 out of 10 for me, the best by far.

  • Excellent service- attentive yet un-intrusive. Food was plenty and the chefs menu showcased both delicate and robust flavours. A wonderful intimate dining setting for a cool spring night. Will need to come back again!
