Apparently this is the place most people come wait for a table at Garagistes just around the corner. It is however a wonderful destination in itself, lovely wine & beer list and gorgeous plates around the $15 mark perfect for sharing and with great big flavours and excellent technique.

All seats are basically at the bar meaning a great opportunity to watch your food coming together, and chat with the very lovely staff.

Gnudi – smooth and rich like the inside of ravioli. Crispy fried saltbush.


Clams with fried bread. This was just incredible, clams pulled out of the ocean less than 24 hours before with silky smooth sweet onions and deep fried brioche.


Heirloom carrots with burnt butter yoghurt. Golden crunchy flakes of garlic – sweet and crunchy.


Their wine list was also just marvelous, trust the staff recommendations – they know their stuff.
