What an amazing evening we had at ekhidna. Were made to feel like royalty from the moment we walked through the front door. Fantastic that we could do wine tasting in the evening. Thankyou to the blond american for a great evening! :-)

Very friendly staff, nice ambience. Due to winter season, only platters available. Just average in quality and size, didn't feel satisfied with a $30 platter for two. Menu stated hot & cold meats, but only had 6 slices of chorizo. Why are resto's so skimpy on bread? Guests at adjacent table complained as cheeses had been omitted. Very apologetic waitress.

Being a boutique, hand-crafted beer aficionado, I wanted to try out these beers as well as the wines. Beautifully looked after by Jaron, the knowledgable Californian, behind the counter, we were guided through their reds and whites, preferring their good quality reds, especially the Shiraz and cab-sav's. They were winners of the best Australian Shiraz in 2004, and I can... More

I made a booking for Sunday lunch for 20 people. Was told that 20 guests were the maximum for A La Carte menu - otherwise we had to have limited menu. Afterwards I discovered that there were 2 lunch sittings and if you booked for 12 you had to be out by 2 which didn't really fit in with my... More

Went for lunch. Started off with a very potent pink apple cocktail. Was yummy but deadly. Should have eaten something more substantial than a couple of share platters as my head was spinning! Like the dip platter but though the cheese platter was too overpowering. Love their cider but disappointed that it needs to stay refrigerated due to no preservatives... More
