We just went tonight and a little disappointed as my main came out cold. The waitress was fine about it but when I had the new veal brought back I could tell it was just micro waved, as this time only 2 pieces of veal instead of 3 and the plate was incredibly hot! I'm no fool, it was obvious,... More

We had not eaten at Mirka for several years and were delighted to find the restaurant still offers great food and affordable prices. We took advantage of the lunch menu. As of June, prices are $40 for two courses and $50 for three, with a glass of wine or a coffee. Since most mains are approximately $30, this deal is... More

A long fall from grace. What was once a great place to eat, suddenly turned into my worst dining experience ever. Our group of 8 arrived for our 730 reservation, and we left after our dessert at 1215. That says it all. Management, owners and kitchen staff clearly had zero clue on how to cater for a crowd. The poor... More

10/10 for Mirka's at Torlano. All 3 waiters/ress were friendly, very knowledgable on the menu and very attentive. Restaurant ambience was so pleasant, music at perfect volume, love the wall murals 😊. We didn't wait very long and warm bread with dipping oil was served, we then shared the Proscuitto entree, 1 main was Market Fish, the other Pork Belly.... More

Delicious food. I had the market fish of the day (snapper) Sardinian style with prawns, mussels, tomato and fregola pasta. The seafood was all so tender and the sauce very tasty. The nutella cream pie was also very good. My husband loved the gnocchi with truffle pecorino entree and his pork cutlet special. Highly recommended. The bread was tasty.The service... More

My first visit to Mirka was for a 2 for the price of 1 luncheon special (2 courses + wine). Although this special was purchased through an outside agency, I also noticed that they have their own special deals. The meals were fantastic, well presented, generous portions and the service excellent. Market fish of the day (Barramundi) was superb, soft... More

Had lunch today with a voucher. Unlike some other restaurants that provide second rate food & service with vouchers, the food & service was excellent. It's great to see Mirka's art still on the walls. We'll certainly be back as fully paying guests.

Visited Mirka for the first time with friends last week for dinner on a Friday night. Firstly the atmosphere was great. We were a group of 8 and were in one of the smaller rooms so cosy and no noise issues that you sometimes get in restaurants. Most of us utilised a special they had on - 2 courses plus... More
