This upscale bistro treads a very fine line between mannered elegance and decadence. A sleek marble bar and modishly ravaged walls contribute to the sense that you've stepped into a scene from La Dolce Vita. Happily, the restaurant is as serious about its food as its sense of style. Crisply roasted duck is now a local legend, and the pasta is always al dente. If the amazingly delicate crayfish omelet is on the menu, do yourself a favor and order it. A lunch special
(2 courses with wine and coffee) for A$35 is great value if you're nearby. For an infomal drink before your meal, a new adjoining bar was built in 2013.
