    Feeling sorry we haven't been back in so long. Our loss. What an excellent meal. Shaved Fennel salad, gnocchi, barramundi, duck breast, all of superior freshness and taste. As they were BYOB we were able to accompany this excellent meal with two great wines from our cellar. Set a reminder to come back soon.

    A wonderful combination of courses once again. I don't normally eat that species of fish, but it was a nice change for me.

    As usual, we have a great time at Blue Bottle. The food is great and cooking temperatures are always perfect. I had the barramundi with a surprising paprika butter. The association of flavors works very well especially with the vegetables that were complementing the dish. Even though I had no doubt, I will come back for sure
