Charming little establishment perfect for a degustation (with a twist). If you are wanting a degustation with white table clothes and silver service then this place is not for you however, if you are looking for a unique experience to try some nice food and wine and don’t mind sitting up at a bar then this place is for you....

What a devine little find in New Farm! Have been many times since the new owners have taken over. Great ambience ( love the old brick wall with the authentic shell mural ), fantastic food and superb knowledge of the wines. We were really impressed with how the staff matched a wine to each of our meals. If you are... More

My husband and I went to Anise for our anniversary a few years ago and thought it was ok, but didn't feel it justified the expense. But on hearing the restaurant had changed hands and head chefs we tried it again for our anniversary this year. What an improvement! The wine was fantastic and the staff knowledgeable and able to...

We have been to Anise before and always liked it. It is now even better under the current owners! Great food, wine selection, music and service. The ambiance is great! I have no hesitation in recommending Anise for a graat meal and experience.

Pre-dinner drinks next door at Gerties and then dinner at Anise. We were a group of four so booked for the end of the bar as it's easier to talk to each other. Cracking meals - pork two ways was fabulous as was the lamb. Very experienced host - great wine knowledge. A unique dining experience worth doing.

This restaurant is a little different to what I'm used to, but the food, service and atmosphere were absolutely brilliant. We went there for date night and although you are seated at the bar, they have managed to create an intimate dining experience for customers. I cannot fault our experience that night, the food was delicious, the wine was excellent... More

Anise is a little sliver of a place on Brunswick St but it certainly has impact. The standard of presentation, the bar staff's wine knowledge and the food are of a really high quality. I loved it and I will definitely be going back.

Booked this place for a work dinner with 5 other colleagues from Sydney and Melbourne on a Thursday night. The atmosphere on walking in was very relaxed and we immediately felt at home in this great little bistro. Loved the bar that we all sat around. The menu had some really interesting combinations and really showed that this place is... More

Small venue, mainly bar seating, but terrific atmosphere. Arrived before my friend, and the Manager couldn't have been more friendly or attentive. When I couldn't decide on a wine, he provided tastes until I found one I liked. When we ordered, my friend had the duck and said it was amazing. I ordered two entrees, and they timed the arrival...
