Introduction Tonight brevity dominates
Ambience Quieter than others. Happy atmosphere, unobtrusive music Small bare wood tables wood chairs w cane seats Some outside tables

Service S-l-o-w

Food Very good Wide selection Cooked as requested Large serves Crusty bread w butter and an Italian first pressed olive oil. We enjoyed a fillet steak with eggplant stuffed w tomato, cheese and eggplant (involantini) with a cabernet jus and swordfish with prawns on bed of potatoes Excellent panacotta with apricots

Wine Extensive w reasonable selection by the glass

Price Mains $16-26.50 About $75 for 2 without wine

Comments A small complementary Elderton Botrytis desert wine was an unexpected pleasure. Considerably better than one might expect from a wine bar Worth a visit
