A hidden gem

We were guests of "locals" , and what a treat. An extensive "specials" menu, any requests accommodated. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere only surpassed by the food. A great night.

Food outstanding. Wine list decent. Ambiance and decor is lovely - al fresco seating around a fountain under large white umbrellas and at night - candles on the table and twinkle lights coiled in the trees. Sitting outside whether at lunch or dinner, always transports me and makes me feel as if I am in Europe - in a good... More

Live around the corner from this place, visit it often and am never disappointed. Nice and central, but off the beaten track. Good for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Lovely place in Musgrave, with an outside and inside table setting. I had the lamb burger which was not what I expected, it was alot better, the mince was curried and packed full of flavour. My wife had the French toast brioche with crispy bacon which was just as good and will be perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Food is good, price is fair, venue unpretentious and half outdoors under the trees. Waiters delightful and service good bar for being slow. I suspect a kitchen bottleneck on busy days and thus not a venue if a quick turnaround is required.

The perfect setting for a Sunday morning breakfast. The fountain and trees drain away all stress. Not for the guest who is in a hurry. Highly recommended!

I recently visited this establishment with a group of relatives on the 26 Dec 2014. We were a large party (15 people) -but the management did their best to accommodate us. From the get go - our waitress "Summer" - was an absolute delight. She was a very conscientious waitress who paid attention to our needs. The food itself was... More

Sitting around the fountain entwined among eight synchronised fever trees. Good service. Tasty menu. Well priced food although the wine list is on the high end. Relaxed atmosphere. Stylish without the fussiness of nearby Florida Road. Our new favourite place.

Colleagues recommended Market as good restaurant for several of us from the US that were in Africa on business over the holiday to enjoy a festive meal. It was great. Very nice modern facility, pleasant with a wall of glass doors open to catch the evening breeze. Attentive waiter. It felt a bit like a trendy place in San Francisco.... More
