We heard all about this restaurant with great reviews. Staff were friendly and efficient. Make sure you have your credit card! Minimum price for a bottle of wine around $56.00. The food was reasonably priced but very, very ordinary for the build up, reviews and price. We were both very disappointed!

At very short notice, my family of seven diners was squeezed in to the Glebe Point Diner & it was a perfect evening. The menu continues to be interesting and well executed. This is a great, quality local diner that is worth travelling to from further afield.

We have dined in this restaurant many times over the years. The food is consistently good as is the service. We particular like having lunch on a sunny Friday afternoon. The portions are a good size for lunch and there is a good variety of wine by the glass.

I've been here several times over the years since it opened though only ever for dinner. The food is always good and honest though the portions are not overly generous. A tight menu with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Lovely, cozy ambience both inside and out. Caring, attentive staff. A good local for a once in a while treat.

Been here a number of times and it never disappoints. The menu changes regularly, its always exciting and there's always something a little adventurous to try. Smart, professional service, a great wine list, a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Friday lunch is, understandably, quite popular and the restaurant seemed to be fully booked. But apparently not enough waiters were on duty. A long wait to have our order taken, but the meals arrived within an acceptable time. A very long wait to have the empty plates cleared away, then we had to ask for the dessert menu which took...

We went here for a farewell dinner for a work colleague. The set menu was good but the portion size was a bit lacking meaning the table often ran out of a dish before everyone had got to sample it. The other issue was the table. We were situated at a large table near a sliding door onto the outdoor... More

My wife and I popped in for an unplanned lunch. The welcome was great, the place was busy but they had a spare seat outside which was a lovely place to watch the world go by. They do a $55 3 course lunch with a glass of wine which is hard to beat. We had some Oysters that were just... More

Went for a 6.15pm Saturday night dinner and were on time as we'd been told we had two hours, which is fine. But when we arrived it took over 30 mins for our food order to be taken, which meant we were then told we didn't have enough time to have the sharing plates. Disappointing but no matter the food...

Staying in Glebe

Neighborhood Profile
Glebe
An inner city suburb along the water, Glebe has a deep-rooted sense of cultural history and heritage. It originated as a semi-rural resort for the well-to-do, but has transformed into a student-centric melting pot. Visit Glebe Point Road for ethnic cuisine as standard as Mexican, Indian, Italian and Chinese, or as diverse as Spanish, Bavarian, Polish, Czech and Lebanese. You will find that Glebe is accepting of the eccentrics and aboriginals that roam the streets, integrating students and people of all economic statuses into the multi-cultural fabric that distinguishes this suburb. Glebe Foreshore is a great destination for a leisurely walk along the Bay, and the Saturday market is a great scene for bargain hunters.
