« A Great Shiraz - Laneway from Margret River | Main | Don't Drink Another Glass of Wine Without This! »


We ate here a few nights ago --a friend recommended it. It was a weeknight and we were the only patrons! The service was terrific, of course, and the food was really good. My husband had the skirt steak. He's really picky and loved it. It was cooked perfectly and the seasoning was really tasty. I had the monk fish topped with clams, mussels and shrimp. Not a huge portion but excellent. We shared shrimp ceviche as an appetizer--again, wonderful. This restaurant has a liquor license which is probably the biggest problem. We had a carafe of sangria. It was very good --it's hard to make bad sangria! But it was small and the price was $20. We were barely finished our appetizers when we finished it--it goes down easy--so we each had a glass of wine. Our bar bill was $34! Normally, we eat in Montclair where most of the restaurants are BYO. We're spoiled since we had discovered good wines at $8 a bottle. So...when we got the bill here, and it was over $100 with tip (no dessert or coffee), we were a little surprised. Although we really liked this place (assuming the atmosphere is more lively on a weekend night), there is much competition in the area and we prefer the savings that a BYO restaurant offers.
