I always love the atmosphere of the restaurant. Staff services are 5 star, and the food and presentation never disappoint me. Next time I'll have to try the three course meal, which is priced at $60~$65. Looks like a good value for money.

Beautiful food, great service and lovely setting. I had the salmon which was cooked beautifully (crispy skin, yum) and the chocolate salted caramel tart for dessert which was delicious. The restaurant is super cosy and has a lovely inviting atmosphere. We will definitely return when...More
