Food and wine is great in this small restaurant. I’ve been there twice now. The food was fabulous both times. Highly recommend

Really can't understand the hype around this restaurant. Extremely busy - both times we looked at a table there was an hour wait. In addition, the food was very slow to come out and they appeared very understaffed imo. The motif of matching meats with fruits was definitely not my thing, and I thought $65 for 5 dishes quite expensive. Wouldn't go back and wouldn't recommend.

We arrived at the restaurant only to find they did not have our booking. When we spoke to the waiter and he said if we waited for half an hour they could accommodate us. It was well worth the wait. The food was just fabulous and so was the service. The lamb ribs were to die for. Will definitely be back to try some of the other dishes that we could not fit in.

One of the best places I've eaten in Melbourne, super fast, informal and tasty, absolutely perfect food and great drinks, in busy crazy mayhem. I would have no hesitation in returning. Biggest issue seems to be getting a seat, and we had to wait 45 mins, we went and had a drink and they texted us when ready. Go and have a look (and eat!) - it's something else!

This is such a great venue with an awesome atmosphere. Food was amazing. Service was very friendly and staff were very personable and attentive. Loved the Steamed Pork Buns, Prawn Dumplings and the BBQ Lamb Ribs. Super yummy. Highly recommend this place for dinner if you're in Melbourne.
