“Delicious dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

As we always stay in the Flynn's Beach area, we like to dine in the area. What a lovely surprise to find Tommy's replaced by the Bar. Young enthusiastic new owners and a good menu choice made a delicious dining experience. Thank you.

“New but very lovely meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

I was told about this new place by other people in town and work and we thought we would give it a go. I was a bit sceptical to start with as it was the old tommy's site and we thought oh just a redo of the old, but thought we would give it a go. That was a really great decision rang and booked a table for 4 adults a 1 child and a pram with baby, when we arrived we were shown our table and asked if it was alright as it was a bit sunny and if we wished to move that could be arranged but we didn't, on the table waiting our granddaughter was some texture’s colouring pencils and book as well as paper for her she of Couse loved it she started drawing straight away (she draw a picture of the waitress and gave it to her). We ordered our meals and they arrived in a reasonable time frame. The meals were great well-presented and cooked just right our son in law knows a bit about cooking having worked in the industry and he was very happy with the meal as well!! we had a great meal and desert and we were looked after extremely well we thought this would be one place that we would definitely promote to people that we know when the ask as this was well worth the effort the management of -The Bar Restaurant & Cafe - should be congratulated on their staff and the quality of the meal WELL DONE TO ALL. Our only concern was that it has no wheelchair access and the stairs are a bit had to negotiate when you have a pram and baby but otherwise I would highly recommend this establishment to all and sundry PLEASE GO and see for yourself.

“It was OK ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Service was a little slow at first and it did seem like we were forgotten for a while as people who arrived after us were served before. The young girl who took over from the previous waiter was a delight. She was friendly and very welcoming.
The food was OK. We had the barramundi, this was very " fishy" tasting, so I doubt it was fresh, the 500g surf and turf had a massive chunk of gristle. The other 500g rump was OK, it was enjoyed. I had the duck, this was cooked to perfection, my only complaint is the risotto was too cheesy, this over took from the mild flavour of the duck.
Also, I don't like when we get the bill after dinner. It seems like we are being pushed out.
Overall, none of us will be back. For the price you pay, you don't get the quality.
