Great cocktails

I go here quite often with friends for happy hour and tapas. The tapas is actually quite cheap for the city, however it's always the cocktails I come back for. The passion fruit and espresso martini are to die for and I always keep buying them after happy hour is finished. After the dinner crowd... read more

This place has it all! Firstly there is the $34.50 per person all you can eat Tapas, amazing food, and service, and not a single problem when we ordered enough food for a small tribe between the two of us! Then the Decor, so warm and inviting! Velvet boothes and mood lighting and a giant Moose head, what could be... More

I came here with a group of friends and never will again. Was taken advatange of. Ordered 1 drink, and the bartender made me two assuming one was for my friend next to me, even though he already had a drink. I said no, only 1 and the bartender made me another one. I was absolutely dumbfounded, when I told... More

Hi Thomas, Thanks for your feedback. I do apologise if your experience at Longroom didn't meet your expectations. In these situations where it appears to be a miscommunication between yourself and our staff member it is best to highlight the issue to the staff member or a Manager at the time so it can be sorted out quickly and you...

I remember eating here years ago and was really impressed with the tapas but now I think it is a very poor imitation. Admittedly I was there on the mid-week all you can eat menu for $35. You can order two dishes per person at a time but honestly I'd be hard pressed to find one I enjoyed. Four of... More

The sushi was excellent. We had the venue as a private party. The DJ and atmosphere was great and made for a fun night. Recommended.

Visited this place twice on Fridays and was quite busy but its all worth it. Food is amazing and the cocktails are great too. Price is reasonable and good value for money. Good atmosphere and crowd as well.

Ordered 4-5 tapas dishes between 2. Food and service was prompt. Dining area a little cramped when busy as the evening goes on. Gas fireplace and candle light features provide a cosy, warm atmosphere . Mid range price and. Great choice of food and drink.

The venue which is first and foremost a bar was hopping and frantically busy -and the music was so loud could not literally hear the person on the other side of the table -all conversation had to be shouted -not a good place for eating and chatting -at 9.00...

We had a great girls night out. Ordered great food, got told it was happy hour until 9:00pm, which meant $10 cocktails, the service was fantastic and well deserving of the tip we left (we don't normally tip). Was one of the best dining experiences in a long time
