I loved the moussaka, that was different because it was made with fish: absolutely wonderful ! You feel very welcome in this restaurant and the staff does everything to make you happy. Great food, especially the fish!

We were a group of 6 friends just getting together after some time. We ordered the mixed seafood platter and the whole deep fried snapper to share as well as a couple of entrees squid ink ravioli and scallops. The food was of good quality and the service was also great. The overall style could be defined as modern Australian... More

From the moment we arrived without a reservation I can only express how amazing the service was. The owner Angela sat down with us and recommend items on the menu, she was friendly, cheeky - she knows her food and her patrons! The food also was incredible, service was quick without feeling rushed. Did I mention the food was incredible!... More

My wife and I went to Sardine on 28 Nov just as they were setting up before opening. The staff were very accommodating and seated us. After perusing the menu the host Angela came and sat with us to discuss what we wished to order. This was a pleasant surprise and an engaging experience. Next we ordered some wine and... More

I've eaten at the Sardine Room a few times and it is always great. The owners are wonderful with friendly attentive service - they are part of the reason it's such a great place. They have loads of regulars which is testament to the great food and service. They have a regular menu (make sure you have the squid ink... More

This Resturant was recommended to us. We made reservations. It was a nice 30 min walk from the Intercontinental. Very cozy little place. The Owner was very helpful with menu choices! In my opinion it really maximized our dining experience! We all 3 got the Whole Fish as our entree and lots of different sides. Incredible dining experience!

The experience of The Sardine Room began with a telephone call from owner Angela to confirm my reservation. Her bright and friendly personality left me with a good impression. She explained that husband, Rodney, would be looking after us on that particular evening. After a pleasant walk up Victoria Street--which is shaded by a canopy of gorgeous trees--we turned into...

Enjoyed a good evening meal here with a mainly fish menu and an irrepressible patron full of charm and good humour. Try and get a table outside as otherwise you will probably end up striking a conversation with the neighbouring table if you are inside but it makes for more fun. The food is fresh , well prepared and we... More
