G/F, 4 Staunton Street, SoHo Tel: 2522 2128 Open: Monday-Friday 11.30am-3pm, 6pm-11pm; Saturday and public holidays 11am-11pm; Sunday 10am-11pm Cuisine: Pacific-inspired surf'n'turf. Price: About $450 per person, including a glass of wine each and 10 per cent service charge. Ambience: It's a small restaurant with an atmosphere that combines lively and romantic. Pros: The service was impeccable, the food was beautifully presented and the portions generously sized. My fellow diner described it as a 'heavenly' dining experience. I wouldn't go that far, but it's definitely one of the top eateries of its kind in the area. As opposed to some restaurants that use 'grill' in their name, this one delivers the hearty seafood and meat meals that you expect. Cons: Water has to be ordered by the bottle. Recommended dishes: The classic Caesar ($69) was just that, with fresh, crisp lettuce, and the Thai beef salad ($79) was one of the better examples of the dish, featuring succulent, spicy beef. The rib eye steak ($149, left) came with daily potatoes (which on that day was an excellent wasabi mash) and vegetables. There was a choice of accompanying sauces, and the bearnaise we decided on was an excellent choice. The menu offers additional sides at $40 each, so we ordered the caramelised onions and french fries. The char-grilled chicken breast ($139) was nothing short of exceptional. It was a lot of food for two people sharing, so we were relieved when the servers offered to pack up the leftovers for us. The lemon-lime and passion fruit sorbets ($54, below) were the perfect palate-cleansing, refreshing, light dessert you need after a heavy meal. The chocolate pudding ($59) is excellent, but a heavier choice. What else? There's a great range of seafood on the menu. It's well worth going back to sample if you don't get past the meat the first time around.
