Introduction: The closest Southbank eatery to the Arts Centre
Ambience : Dark and noisy
Food Variable. The Mezethes ($20) were tasty the fish cakes ($8 or $14) were not. The confit of Duck leg with chick peas, preserved lemon and grilled nectarine ($24) did not please me but the potato gnocchi, pan fried with marinated taleggio, sage and fresh tomato ($16 or $24) was excellent.
Rhubarg and cherry trifle was lovely and the Alfogato - a shot of liqueur and espresso coffee poured over vanilla bean icecream (both $11) was interesting
Price: Expensive at about $70 for two
Comments: Not my cup of tea!
