Table 51 is not an attractive place to dine: somewhat tired looking and looking uncared for. Absolutely lacking in atmosphere. Service friendly but food took ages to arrive. When it did arrive it was a pleasant surprise: not especially well-presented but well-cooked, although the sauce on the bugs was a little too powerful. All in all, needs a makeover.

After a local recommendation, we booked for dinner Friday, 29 August 2014. Upon arrival, we were told to choose a table and unwittingly chose to sit at the table with the beach umbrella that was tied down with gift wrapping ribbon and beside very sad looking pot plants, some that were sitting in dirty old black plastic pots and one...

I have never been to this restaurant before and I thought that I would like to try something different. The service was wonderful as we were very looked after and the waiter Alex was lovely. The good came out straight away and tasted great! So we definitely got our value for money. Will be back :)

We ordered spring rolls and Turkish bread as a starter, the spring rolls were fine but the Turkish bread was near burned and useless for the dipss presented. For main we ordered the pork chop and the bugs, the bugs, which came with a huge serving (6... More

So, glad we went here recently for dinner and the meal was beautiful. The chef/owner was very friendly and made sure we were happy, the staff were great and the music in background was just right. Also, had breakfast there next morning which was also good and chef made sure we were okay again. Great service again.. Can,t wait to... More

Spent our wedding anniversary there last night.This was our first visit to the restaurant. For the $160 I don't think we got anything exceptional. $19 for 6 medium sized oysters is pretty steep, although they were at least flavorsome. As another reviewer mentioned, we have however received better value and same flavors at the local pub. The bruschetta was ordinary... More

Went there for dinner tonight. Was looking for something really nice and I wasn't disappointed. They have a great choice of selections. You can see the chef in the kitchen from most tables. The waitresses seemed to be on a learning curve but were eager to please I had the Chicken with Camembert and Double smoked Ham. It was really... More

We have been going to table 51 religiously for every birthday due to the excellent quality of food and service. We notice how Denis and his team work seamlessly and create some amazing dishes. Yes, the meals do take a little longer than your traditional 'pub food', but what you get is quality as they cook from scratch and take... More
