A Few Restaurant Reviews

A few


Sydney Morning Herald October 2009
The winning dish is a soft and supple cushion of smoked confit ocean trout surrounded by a pretty pastel wreath of cucumber jelly cubes, ocean trout roe and baby radish leaves. The flavours and textures feel as natural and as gentle as a tickle of tide creeping in to kiss the sand – writes Terry Durack

The Sydney Magazine February 2010
Balmoral Beach’s polite new resident neatly distils everything that’s good about dining by the water in summer – writes Guy Griffin

Sunday Telegraph November 2009
I couldn’t pick a star, for every dish tingles with perfection – writes Elizabeth Meryment

Mosman Daily November 2009
The cassoulet of grilled chorizo, white beans, capsicums, tomatoes and calamari had a fantastic combination of flavours and the Rangers Valley grain-fed eye fillet was tender enough to be cut with a butter knife for my main – writes Lisa Muxworthy
