We recently tried to dine at this restaurant and our experience was quite extraordinary. We did not have a reservation but thought we'd pop in to see if they could accommodate us. The restaurant did look busy but we noticed a long bench outside without customers, saying to ourselves we would happily sit there. Two young girls came in just... More

I can see they were trying to keep it cosy but nearly sitting on top of strangers does not mean cosy to me, I nearly copped a woman's big butt as she tried squeezing into her seat (not the owners fault she had a big butt) then we got the food, I had barramundi with kifler potatoes, the fish was...

i think we had expected a little more after hearing so many good reports, but we were a little let down. Although our meals were quite nice (if a little small). Will definitely return and try again and can only hope it is a little less noisy.

Me and my partner chose this place because of the fabulous reviews and we were not disappointed!! The service was wonderful, the atmosphere inviting and the food was absolutely delicious! We ordered the cuttlefish for a shared entree and the pan roasted salmon and chicken for our mains. Absolutely everything on our plates worked beautifully with one another and each... More

I'm afraid my experience of the Little Restaurant was completely underwhelming. To start with the waitress failed to explain the specials and pointed in a very uninterested way to the specials board. When our meals arrived we were stunned - my husband and I ordered salmon and we received a half a tail each- 3 mouthfuls later and we were... More

I chose this Restaurant as it was walking distance from my hotel and the previous reviews i read made it sound so inviting. The staff and owner was so helpful and made me as a single diner feel really comfortable. Don't pass up on the pork belly, it's simply outstanding. The wine list is very well thoughtout with some great... More
