“Best I've had in the Northern suburbs.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Great restaurant with varied, interesting and tasty food. Not a very wide selection for vegetarians but the pasta I had was excellent. My wife had fillet and also said it was top class. Best desserts we have had in a long time. We went on a Wed night so it was not very full which made it a bit more private. I'm not sure what the ambience is like on a busy Saturday night.

“Good Food- just not on New Year's Day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

The food was good, and is well presented with associated service expectation.
I do not recommend it on New Year's day however, as the usual quality of food and service are lacking!

Upmarket (somewhat expensive) restaurant...interesting menu and professional service make it worthwhile.

“Great late night meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

If you have never visited the Michelangelo lounge you are in for a surprise. Just take a seat, relax and don't worry about rushing off to get home. This place is very peaceful and the staff are very helpful. The menu has a late night section where you can have some lovely sandwiches which are accompanied by fries. Don't forget to have their fantastic hot chocolate or a lovely high tea snack. The prices here are reasonable and the quality of the food is consistent even at the wee hours of the morning. Best of all, there is sometimes a pianist who will play some relaxing music whilst you enjoy the company of your family or friends.
