The night was balmy and the outside terrace a cool place to be with friends. Lots of groovy people drinking , chatting , laughing and enjoying each others company as they waited for food to arrive to their numbered tables. Our group of four, ordered a gnocchi with lamb ragu , a nice australian twist on an Italian basic ,... More

Nice joint with great backyard. Great at the time with good weather, but they have great indoor as well. Was there for drinks only but enjoy the time there.

Came for a Sunday lunch and was extremely disappointed. The whole food ordering at the bar makes it so slow and irritates everyone. Given how busy the place is surely an extra till just for food ordering is justified. The vegetarian pasta is an epic fail. Pasta, frozen peas- no sauce. The venue is great but the system they employ... More

A fantastic beer garden right in the heart of Surry Hills. Wine and beer a bit expensive. Food menu sort of pub average - nothing special on offer.
