We came here for lunch last week and had one of the best meals we've eaten in a long time.
One of us had the home made nettle pasta with sage butter and pumpkin. This was nicer than any pasta we've ever eaten at an Italian restaurant! The pecorino cheese on top was delicious too.
The other had the fried chicken, which we dubbed 'posh KFC'. This was really tasty, crispy and nicely cooked chicken.
The star of the meal was the dessert: homemade fejoa ice cream with ginger caramel. This was devine and the ginger was a perfect match for the fejoa.
They were busy that lunchtime. The service was good with a couple of very very minor mistakes.

I really like the kedgeree here- the taste is quite special but I am getting less and less for $25 now! I am not sure how they are costing this or if it is subsidising other dishes? But still love it

Some years ago, I was not impressed with either the food or service but I have on several occassions dined here for brunch since then and have appreciated their quality food. Their pricing is also more reasonable for most dishes but I think kedgeree at $25 is rather exhorbitant. I had some scrambled eggs with herbs and a side of smoked salmon which was very nice. Their scrambling of the eggs is the 'just cooked' approach and they must use very small eggs as it is not a large portion. Several others at our table just had a coffee and date scone, the almond brioche looked yummy and how sensible to have 2 different sizes of the cream filled cronutty thingys in the cabinet - not quite guilt free but reduced guilt.
The dining area opposite the service area is a great light filled space and on a fine day the outdoor seating is a sunny spot amongst the vegie and herb containers. Lovely.
