    Overpriced. For the price we paid I would expect more. The food was good but there are better value restaurants nearby. It was so noisy I couldn't even hear my partner across the table.

    Go in a group of 7, order the entire menu to share with two bottles of tinto then moscato+postre = $70pp for the most interesting and delicious fancy dinner ever. Loud music my only complaint.

    Looking for tapas? This place is great - but busy, and no reservations. Ask them to call you when a table's ready - and you can hang at the Foveaux Resturant & Bar around the corner. Check http://bit. Read more
