I took the chance to try Urbane for a business dinner, and was extremely satisfied. We had booked the private function seating downstairs, as our group was close to 20 in total. From the first acknowledgement at the door, the attentive staff showed me to our location, and provided a welcoming wine selection, of which a superb Tasmanian Pinot was... More

There is no debt in my mind that the standard of food at Urbane approaches that of Esquire. From start to finish it is close to a five star experience. However a couple of aspects of our Saturday night dining experience were three stars or less. We were originally shown to a table in a corner next to a staircase... More

The food has always been good and last time the long degustation menu was up to the highest international standards of fine food.

From the atmosphere, the service, the food and the wine - nothing to not like. We were well looked after and the food was good quality and very nice.

Small restaurant with an area for dinner meeting. Nice bra area for pre dinner drinks. Food is very good - I had the lamb, very nicely cooked (medium).

The service at this restaurant is fantastic from the staff to the Manager could not fault them. The food was amazing and the wine that was married to the food was out of this world. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone, not cheap but worth it.
