The restaurant never fails to deliver, The food is always excellent, subtle flavours, attention to detail with plating and intriguing combinations. The food is complimented with an excellent wine list. The staff know their role having a good knowledge of the menu & wines on offer. Brilliant venue for that special occasion.

My husband and I dined at Urbane for our wedding anniversary dinner. The restaurant was beautiful and intimate. We both chose the 8 course menu and my husband had the matching wines. The food as expected was beautifully presented and of the highest quality. There were a few dishes with a smoked flavour that were not to my taste but... More

I had dined here a couple of years ago but there had been a change of chef so I decided to give it another go and see how it went. The restaurant was fairly quiet with the smallish space less than half full. The service was thus prompt and efficient. Also quite friendly and polished without being over the top.... More

It was a special occasion so took my wife to dinner to Urbane and had the 8 course gustation, plus the accompanying wines. Food and wine combinations were really well thought out. Each of the dishes were really appetising and a delight to look at. The service was also good, except a slight glitch when my wife was served apples... More

Well the winner of this year's anniversary dinner was Urbane. Can I say I had previously assessed their menu as not worthy of our attending this fine establishment. I was wrong. We had the meat eaters delight 8 course option with wines. Happy Dance time. Husband has stolen the menu of the night from me but from memory ... not... More

Degustations can very very interesting and exploritory in terms of taste sensations and Urbane does this very well. Nicely delivered plates of cleverly crafted foods that leave a lasting memory of the experience.

I have found the food offered at this restaurant very interesting. Food are presented in a different form to what one might expected. They come in small portions but quite a variety. Taste is quite nice.
