After having lunch I was extremely disappointed. The published recipe (rabbit linguine)was notable for lack of rabbit. The recipe called for a pair for 4 serves...not even close, in fact the inclusion of a full rib bone was about the only indication of the base of the dish. It was bland and very oily. Service fair at best. Menu reads well but at least on this occasion a let down.

After hearing about this place from a whole bunch of people, me and my friend decided to go check it out, with respect to the aformentioned post, i had almost the complete and opposite experience, we walked in, were seated and had drinks all in under 5 minutes, and the place was packed, we also had the tapas tasting menu, and were blown away with some of the flavour combinations, but like most dining experiences there is usually going to be something that you don't like, personally for me the Octopus carpaccio was the "un-highlight" due to the flavour of the smoked paprika being far too strong, but the duck doughnuts with Porcini salt, and the gorgonzola arancini both top notch dishes! this isnt a super fine-dining venue, but a great place to take 4-6 people and have a realy casual laid back time. also worth a mention is the wine list which is short with a good spanish/italian direction!

What a dud. I was really looking forward to something great but it came up well short. For a 'dish that can't go wrong' out table ordered wood oven pizzas. They were burnt and soaked in oil. For something challenging and interesting we ordered the $65 per head tasting menu. 12 dishes that ranged from tasteless to grossly matched textures and tastes. Gorganzola 'ice-cream' is a tragic mistake. The best food on the table all night was a braise of goat, but even that was an over-cooked stew. The fashionably designed space was so noisy, even with a room not half full I could barely hear my companions across the table of 6. I'd give it a 1 star rating for everything, but it's not allowed here. But really, it was so very disappointing. I am more than happy to pay for an exciting gastronomic experience, but there was no quality here.
