Visited on 21st August for my 40th birthday and I was treated like family! The squid ink ravioli was both beautiful and subtly delicious and the red snapper was spectacular. Try the seafood sharing platter too, every mouthful is a triumph of savvy buying and skilful preparation. The friendly, knowledgable and charming staff were a delight and not at all... More

A pleasant enough dining experience but really! for the prices asked was nothing exceptional. Friendly service but was not a full house when we attended. The Red Snapper was nice but again - overhyped. Sardines dish was run of the mill and again overpriced.

We singled this restaurant because of its high ranking and we were not disappointed. We had the squid ink ravioli (2 ravioli in the entree) and were impressed with the artistry, but not the flavor. The Indian spiced prawns were very good. But is was the baby red snapper that exploded with flavor. This dish still had us talking the... More

Being a foodie I sought this restaurant and I was highly impressed and not at all disappointed. I went with my family, my bestfriend and her family. I loved how attentive and friendly the staff were and how the ingredients and produce of the dishes were explained to us without us having to ask. Quality and fresh produce cooked with... More

Stumbled upon this place by chance and was not disappointed at all! Had their squid ink ravioli which I would highly recommend and their seafood platter for two. The platter wasn't the best we have had but it was bad either. Service was fantastic, very attentive and I liked how they gave recommendations on what we should try.

Quaint, unpretentious and charming, The Sardine Room is a neighbourhood gem in a sea of ostentation. The husband and wife owners are warm, welcoming and jovial, whilst the plethora of seafood options will leave the pescatarians highly satisfied. A lack of vegetarian/non-seafood dishes, the dearth of the spirit "selection" and the high-priced side dishes prevent The Sardine Room from truly... More

This place is a gem, food was fabulous (and plentiful) the staff were so nice and welcoming and BYO what more can you ask for! The seafood was so fresh and tasty I can't wait to go back. Will probably ask to sit outside next time as the inside is very small and became incredibly noisy with a couple of... More

Even though the weather was atrocious (cats and dogs), the level of service and the way customers are made to feel welcome still made the evening one to remember!!
