Often referred to as an institution, the wine bar captures the essence of a European café; casual yet sophisticated, part of society, a place to meet friends, to drink, to talk, to argue, to joke, to make deals and decisions. Changing little since the Robin Boyd renovation in 1962, the main restaurant features simplicity of bentwood chairs, polished table tops and views of the open kitchen with chefs busily preparing beautiful, fresh food. The main bar has been untouched by the ravages of time, and maintains its traditional charm, having been unaffected by fads or fashions.
