I was taken to Licorish for Sunday lunch as a birthday celebration. I was disappointed that it was situated upstairs in a shopping mall with its tables quite close together - not quite the ambience of preference. However the food and service were excellent with a great choice of dishes. My companions and I opted for the chef's taster platters... More

The service is always fantastic. The food never ever disappoints. Favourites are the Pork Belly, Lamb Rump and signature dessert of Strawberry Crumble with Liquorice ice-cream.

This is a well located place, but the best part is the food. They use plenty of ingredients within a dish to give it a very exclusive taste that would be hard to forget. What tops the food is the service! The staff is very knowledgable of their menu, and efficient to handle a large group like ours.

Very enjoyable and the shopping center environment did not detract from the food or the enjoyable evening with friends.

I have visited Licorish a number of times this year and have always enjoyed my evening. The food is exceptional, the service superior and the advice on wine from their special collection is awesome. A little on the pricey side this isn't a spot that fits everyone's budget but try it for a special ocassion and you will want to... More

This is one incredible restaurant that stands a cut above the rest! Receiving an SMS to confirm out reservation is a nice touch. The waiter we had was exceptional. He was knowledgeable and very customer focused who could really engage with the patrons! He was like a breathe of fresh air compared to service at most other restaurants. The tasting... More
