Oter states that it is contemporary French food. To me, it was more Australian fusion, which isn't a bad thing. It's one of the few places that I've seen nettle used and Fremantle octopus. (If you love tender calamari, you'll love Fremantle octopus. Think pickled, tender, slightly tart tasting octopus tentacles). Nettle is a distinct flavour in itself. If you enjoy sour flavours, you will enjoy nettle.
I went and had the lunch deal because I wanted to try it out. Oter is where a Japanese place had been previously that was always busy.
The decor is fresh, contemporary and clean. The service is attentive. The bathroom uses only Australian made products (a refreshing change from so many restaurant bathrooms). The bathroom even had the added touch of a small bunch of native flowers.
Although the servings looked small, they were actually ample. The lunch and wine deal is a very good deal. The quality of the food was of a high standard. The added advantage is that you could actually see the chef's cooking, which added a dimension of theatre to it.
