I had such a bad day at work but this dinner changed everything. What a treat. That hanging steak was the best thing I had in a long time. Thanks!

“Bustling restaurant serving fantastic food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Attended 'Our Place' for dinner on a Saturday night.

Food was delicious! Stands out where:

The scallops with black pudding, Pork Belly (beautiful crackling!). I loved the dessert! We had the honeycomb cheese cake with lemon curd. The cheese cake was full of flavour and light like mousse. Also loved the presentation of the cappuccino semi freddo.... it was served in a coffee cup with saucer to look exactly like a cappuccino! It satisfied my dessert and coffee craving in one hit!

The only thing to note is that the food may take a while to come out when it is busy. We arrived at 7:30pm and by 8:30pm we had only finished our entrees. By the time we finished dessert it was 9:30pm.

The place is also 'bustling' and bursting with action, so don't expect a quiet one. We were sitting on the inside and I sat against the wall while my husband sat opposite me where there was a lot of through fare. We ended up dragging the table and his chair closer to me as every person walking past was brushing or hitting against him.

All in all a good night - a great place to dine with mates.

“"Our Place", What a Darling!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

My wife and I were taken to Our Place by our daughter-in-law's sister and her 2 children on a balmy evening and dined at an outdoor table. The meals were delicious and just as importantly, the service was friendly and efficient. In fact, we did not have a better meal during our week long stay in Sydney!

I was in Sydney for one night and Our place came highly recommended by a friend. I was not disappointed. The service was sensational and friendly, the atmosphere was relaxed and the food was second to none. I will recommend this place to anyone. It's an absolute gem!
