Yay, happy hour is us! Our $4 vinos and generous tapas were presented with family-style affection and promptness.The upstairs, via a lift, bar-bistro view was superb. The sunset sky and storybook clock towers twinkled in a grand vista. A touch of X-files vibe for us, as at sunset, on a weeknight, the place looked like a humungous party had deserted... More

We had a few tapas dishes at Ablaze before going to Cirque Du Soleil. Service was quick, the waiter was friendly and efficient. I have had better food but it was ok. Little overpriced for the amount of food.

Dropped into this restaurant before cirque du soleil, it was the worst lunch I have ever had. The food was complete rubbish, and the staff stood around chatting & drinking coffee, while our drinks were getting warm at the bar. The place was filthy, so forget it, there are plenty of other places in the fox precinct

I wish I had read previous reviews. Food was bland, overcooked, and distroyed Chilli squid had evidence of any flavour, the salmon fillet was so over cooked it was hard and stiff. The restaurant is filthy both front of house and the bathrooms. ( I hate to think what the kitchen looks like but a council inspection should be on... More

We dined here before seeing Cirque Du Soleil. It was our second visit and won't be the last. We ordered the chilli calamari, garlic bread, arancini balls, patatas bravas, chicken skewers and white wine sangria. All meals were tasty and fresh. The desert was disappointing to me - these lacked flavour just tasted like sugar. I did have a piece... More

Title says it all - waitress spilled wine on our table when she poured - didn't even bother to come back with a towel to clean up. Sat us outside on a freezing night, heaters weren't working. Food was pretty bad and left me with an unsettled stomach until the morning.

The food was poorly cooked and expensive but when I went to the ladies bathroom I was gobsmacked. Two of the the three cubicles had no toilet paper and there were sanitary towels and tissues all over the floor, and the one cubicle that did have toilet paper had no lock on it so I had to hold it shut...
