Introduction: In the premises previously occupied by Lantana at 35 Little Bourke St The restaurant has been opened up and greatly brightened by it's new proprietors
Ambience: Has the feeling of a good class establishment
Service: Attractive waitresses provide information and prompt service
Food: Entrees were large and tasty The lobter rissotto a full meal size serve. The crab pasta also excellent.
We tried four mains. The Hapuka, then slow cooked lamb shanks, the sirloin and the porterhouse steak. All were very well prepared with good size side dishes of chips and spinach with crunchy almond chips made for an excellent meal
Wine: We celebrated with a Bellusi Prosecco - Sweeter than usual but very satisfactory at $38 They have a BYO policy $15 / bottle except on Saturday but they have an adequate list for ordinary consumption
Price: Entrees about $16, mains about $32
Comment: An improvement on Lantana which was pretty good. Deserves to succed
Score 15/20
