We came on a Sunday afternoon around 1 p.m. At that time, the place was pretty packed.

Freshly mango passion fruit juice.
There was a lot of flavour packed into this 3/4 filled glass. I tasted both mango and passion fruit. 

Poached eggs on polenta.
The lamb sausage was spicy and really juicy and tasty. The polenta looked like mashed potatoes and tasted like mashed pasta. The white part of the poached eggs tasted more rubbery than smooth as if they had been pre-poached and sitting in something for a while. As a whole dish, it wasn't bad. The lamb sausage was the star for me.

O&B Tiniest Desserts milk chocolate mousse.
The mousse was incredibly sweet, especially with the denser layer of chocolate (like something out of a torte) on top. There wasn't enough air in the mousse for me. 

Andrew's Classic Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée.
When the desserts were served, I wanted to trade with him. He said the shortbread was good. 

The service was a bit slow for my liking, especially towards the end of our meal. A bit slow and forgetful. There was a good chunk of time where we were trying to find our waiter to get the bill. When we finally flagged him down and asked for it, he forgot about it for another five to ten minutes.

Would I return? Yes. The food was decent enough and the menu seemed to have interesting options.

Total damage: $29 for my share.
