If you haven't been, it's worth even just a walk-through to check out the beautiful interior. They do dim the lights, but not so much as to obscure the room.
Totally a date-night location, and not so busy as to be noisy/rowdy, but at the same time has the space to host quite a few people.
Staff were friendly and accommodating.
Ice Cream and Sorbet ($10) selection of 3 from
- We went with sour cream, one that tasted like haw flakes, and pumpkin.
- Nothing too special for me here. Smallish scoops, too, but price-wise not out of line with getting ice cream at a restaurant. And you get a little decorative something on each, like flowers or what not.
Liquid Centre Chocolate Cube ($15) crisp feuilletine, orange blossom, blood orange gelée
- Overall a beautiful and artistic dessert. You're also paying for artistic composition here but as desserts go, it's tasty if you like chocolate. If you don't mind that, then $15 is a fair price for this item.
- Save the jellies for last if you want to end your dessert on a lighter note rather than heavier chocolate.
- Too late we found out that there was a malfunction with our Cube as the interior wasn't oozy or liquid at all. You may have better luck.
Hello Kitty ($15) buttermilk biscuit, buttermilk ice cream, raspberries, raspberry puree, house-made raspberry marshmellow
- Feature dessert of the day, so there's no guarantee you'll be able to order it, but you can certainly try.
- Unofficially it's called Hello Kitty as it's got the right colours.
- Interesting to eat, especially with the edible flower petals.
- Again you're paying for the art plus the assorted ingredients here. If you like your food beautiful and artsy, try it.
- I only got to try bits and pieces of this, so I can't comment on overall tastiness from the point of view of having it all to yourself and in the full quantity.
This was my friend cocktail, complete with free orchid blossom which she took home. Fruity, light on alcohol buzz.
- Custom non-alcoholic cocktail made on the spot. I was quoted $6 and I asked the bartender to just make something up without consulting me. If I remember correctly, he used rosemary, apple juice, marmalade, and lemon juice. Very interesting flavours came through in a non-competitive way in this refreshing drink.
- If you're not a drinker, it's definitely worth a shot asking for a mocktail of the bartender's creation.
