We went here on a whim last Saturday night - never having been to this restaurant before and we were in for a treat. A new owner and new chef had just taken over and the food was superb. Started off with the calamari entree and the salad that came with it contained delicious smoked tomato from a local grower... More

Just the second day Rapide has opened for breakfast. Tomato eggs and bacon and coffee.....priced well ..and well prepared. Egg yolks were a splendid colour...tomatoes and bacon perfectly cooked. Music was enjoyable, hip hop rock dance music mix....read the paper out of the wind. Not over crowded which I enjoyed.

The new owners have indeed improved this Restaurant to its original standard and quality of food. The new chef/owners are extremely friendly, helpful and the food is fantastic. Our little suburban restaurant is once again a place to recommend and enjoy. The menu now also features pasta and they have daily specials. Try the duck, it is fantastic. I can... More

So title is moderate but.... Yes it was moderate but it's now byo which to me makes it an interesting proposition... I can feel a little more forgiving as I can bring a bottle of champagne for the price of sparkling.... My suggestion... Hit the place up on their special night and you will not be disappointed... Saturday prices may... More

My friend from Sydney came to see our new home so I decided to take him to a local restaurant for dinner. We made a booking and were the only other table in there at 7pm on a Saturday just after Christmas. We choose a wine and ordered that first. Unfortunately I said one wine whilst pointed to another, when... More

Looking forward to visiting a local treasure which held fond memories of fabulousness, we were suspicious when half of the menu featured a two or three course meal offered Tue - Thur... as it was a Saturday. After deciding on our meals from a limited selection (and having to ask what the fish special was) we were served our 'canapé'... More

My partner had been before and recommended we go again. It was quite busy when we arrived but we were seated straight away. We ordered quickly to squeeze in before a large table. The wine was lovely, the service was friendly but we could sense stress in the air. The food took a wile but we were pre warned it... More

This was one of our favourite local haunts for a midweek dinner. It has recently changed hands and unfortunately the new owners don't quite have the same finish and style as the previous. Our meals were well presented but our steak reminded me more of a pub dinner than the usual sassy fare we have been used to at this... More

My parents booked this restaurant to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary. Their preference was for a fairly low key celebration rather than a grand spectacle so a local restaurant, Restaurant Rapide was chosen. My dad made the booking and was told that they were reasonably heavily booked but that we could be seated at 7:45pm. We arrived just before booking... More

Unfortunately our favorite local fine dining restaurant has been sold and taken over by new owners who have no idea. We have been here twice since the owner ship change and unfortunately it has not been a good experience. Medium steak come extra well done. When requesting a glass of wine I was asked to wait until my main meal... More
