Have been a few times recently. Atmosphere is good and live bands always add to the night. Grape and petal food next door is also good. Biggest issue is the price of drinks, It just spoils the night. I know its pushing a different market but you might as well go to Sydney and pay less at better bars. Unfortunatley... More

After being greeted by an overly flirty, BRALESS, bartender a few friends and I spoke to what seemed to be the most senior member of staff who continually called myself and my group of adult females "buddy".

A great place to meet for drinks but not a place to eat. Food very average and we wouldn't go back to eat there but happily to meet friends and relative again when we are up at port regularly.

The Grape and Petal delivers a very special drinking and dining experience like none other in Port Macquarie. The setting is cosmo, the food inter and the drinks mod. Service is spot on and Matt is one attentive and pleasant guy. Background music is moody. G Nd P has a top wine cellar to drink and take, and grand flowers... More

I love this place! Although next to the sometimes noisey and bustling Pier, this place has great ambience and is laid back, cosy, quiet, great atmosphere and sophisticated. Great selection of wine and by all accounts, nice food but not had the chance to eat here yet. Attentive and knowlegable staff and the wonderful whiff of fragrant flowers fills the... More

Amazing International Wines. Very nice little spot. So nice to sit amongst the flowers & bottles of wine. Feels like a little café in country France.We enjoyed oysters and French Champagne & afterwards Tapas style tasting plates with some lovely Italian Pinot Grigio.
