Having been to and really enjoyed Savoy Cabbage on previous SA visits we were rather disappointed this time. Our booking was at 8.45 midweek but the place was nearly empty and soulless. A little background music might have helped. My wife’s beef was rather dry....More

Innovative and tasty food, great staff and service. Had a wonderful dinner there with my friends. Would highly recommend it. The duck and lamb and the créme brule were our favourites!

Located downtown, this unassuming restaurant is larger than its frontage suggests. Menu changes daily dependant on season/ingredients. Modern/eclectic food with friendly but not overpowering service, portion size just right, ordered us a cab back to our hotel. Don't like the bars at the windows or...More
