The restaurant has a lush, masculine feel, with inner-lit stone columns, wooden chairs and starched tablecloths. It's the kind of place you might go for a big occasion or take out-of-town visitors to.
We started our meal with some ciabatta ($9.50) two toasted slices served with fetta and a delicious puree spread. The dish was let down by under-ripe sliced tomato and basil which looked as if it had been chopped some time ago.
Things looked up when our mains arrived.
The double roasted Muscovy duckling ($47.50) was the hit of the day a breast, thigh and leg beautifully cooked with orange and rosemary, served in a rich sauce.
The seafood plate would have been good if it had been less expensive. For $56, I would have hoped for something that looked like the hero photo used in the restaurant's publicity shots.
