“Wow factor food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

The food was amazing and so was the service, so much so that we ate there on both the evenings we were in Robertson! It was cold and rainy but they had heaters going and the atmosphere was enough to warm a person up too!

“Think you can do better in Robertson...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Met friends for lunch on a weekend when the Robertson area had a festival. As a result the restaurant was packed and the kitchen and table staff could not handle the traffic. We were a party of 4 adults and 3 kids and some of us had finished their meals before others got theirs. Service was also very slow and we had to wait half an hour for our initial drinks order. On the positive side, everyone enjoyed their food and the wine list has an excellent selection of local wines including many that are not widely available. Outdoor seating is next to a busy road and best avoided.

“Bad taste in your mouth”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Chipped glasses, bad service and waiters walking around on their cellphones is what you'll find in this disgrace of a place they call Burbon Street Restaurant. If you want to sit for ages before a waiter attends to you then you ought to come here. This establishment surely leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

“Best food and wine in Robertson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Wonderful ambience, tastefully decorated with extensive menu and friendly, prompt service. Helpings are huge so go hungry. Great wine list, offering all the local estates at almost cellar prices. I moved here recently, have travelled all over the world and this restaurant compares well with the best anywhere else. You won't be disappointed!
