Fodor's Review

The street-facing dining room here is packed with young couples enjoying some of the town's best and most eclectic U.K.-inspired food. The menu features "small food" taste sensations like wallaby tartare and citrus-cured kingfish, and larger dishes like pressed suckling pig and beef cheek with brassicas. A five-course "Feed Me" degustation menu is A$75 per person, or A$100 for an even flasher version. The wine list has depth in both Aussie and international selections. The space itself is cozy, featuring original art, and there's an enclosed garden out the back.
