Maybe I'm just getting old! But before things got underway we were already a bit put off by how noisy this restaurant is. Seemed odd because there were no large raucous groups; in fact most looked pretty subdued, and it's carpeted.
We decided it was the background soundtrack, which wasn't very background, requiring that everyone to speak louder than usual. OK for a tapas bar, but not for a night dedicated to fine dining, when you want to hear exactly what each course is composed of (the menu also giving little away in this regard) and share the joy of indulging in such a delicately prepared feast.
But otherwise this restaurant fully deserves its high rating.
While described as 'Italian with a Japanese twist', I'd say it was more 'Japanese with an Italian twist' - which was fine by us.
Every course (whatever they were!) was more sublime than the last. The timing was pretty good - about 2 hours for 10 courses. Not cheap, especially the wines - you won't get out of here for less than $600 a couple. And if you're keen on truffle be prepared to exceed this. But given the waterfront location it was reasonable.
I'd definitely go again.
