Came to dragon fly while they were next to reading theatre as we had been last time we were in town. The service fab as always and the steak Tartar was 11/10. Absolutely stunning. Cocktails always fantastic. See you guys next time we're in town!!!

After three months the Dragonfly is back in action. The experience was at the usual high standard. We had the chive and Pork dumplings, cheese parcels. Curry red duck and the seafood noodles for the mains followed with the desert of plum sago and lemongrass steamed pudding. All washed down with a chilled three paddles white wine. Then into the...

Our group of 12 were well served on a quiet Wednesday night (only one other table of 3 in the restaurant). We sampled just about all of the tapas on the menu with Octopus Balls being one of the favourites. Just a small criticism, we were a little rushed by the staff to finish up and leave the premises, a... More

We originally thought we were going to Mojo's but discovered it was a Dragonfly pop-up in the same space - when there's nothing on at the adjoining theatre Dragonfly gets the evening space. What a nice way to help colleagues through the heartbreak of earthquake demolition. Excellent food - even had the Melbourne visitor raving - great cocktails, nice vibe... More

Came to this restaurant on the recommendation of a local. So glad I did. - SENSATIONAL. Mojito was just delish and the food was outstanding. Ceviche, prawn shumie, cheese parcels and chicken dumplings were all faultless, super tasty and fresh. Staff are friendly attentive and fun. Vibe is perfect. Highly recommend

The real Dragonfly is a beautifully designed space with an outdoor courtyard lit with lanterns. The pop-up Dragonfly is across the road - a new site while an earthquake affected building behind the original Dragonfly is demolished. The pop-up hasn't got the decor (its slick though in the old St James Theatre) and the menu is shorter, but the food... More

Visited last night with my family aged 10 and 12. Limited menu as a pop up restaurant but found lots of yummy tapas to try. Quick and friendly service. Glad to see them still running.

Dragonfly has teamed up with the Mojo cafe across the road to give us a pop up restaurant, hopefully for as long as it takes till they can be up and running again at their place. The pop up restaurant had a much more extensive menu than we expected, and all the lovely regular staff were going out of their... More
