I like this place , the food is great and the service is professional and it was fast for us even though they were busy. I would rate this as fine dining,nothing over the top but everything was good the food was flavorful and the atmosphere was nice and great service and very expensive..

The decor is very trendy and pretty comfortable. The menu is quite small, but pretty interesting. Starter was seafood rissoto which was very good, followed by their fish dish: hapuka, which again was good. The staff were friendly and professional but the service was incredibly slow, they were busy but not stacked. It took about 30mins for someone to take our order after giving us the dessert menu. They had run out of at least 3 people's desserts which is fine but we weren't told until 15mins after our orders had gone through. No real gripe here, just something you don't expect in this level of restaurant. I had the cheesecake, which was the most weirdly presented dessert I've ever had. It was served on one side of the plate, and looked like it had been dropped before being plated up. The flavours were great, but ruined by the presentation. There were about 3 miniture cheesecakey puffs with crumbled pavlova throughout and some lychee sorbet dollops on top. A nice evening but there are other restaurants in the same price bracket that are much better.
