It is really nice and cozy venue. We met there friends to have couple of drinks. We were sitting in the new part, just beside the fire but it was quite cold there. There are heaps of heaters and the fire place itself anyway but we still felt cold. Service is amazing! Both of them did their best to make... More

We had a grab one voucher which we used on a sunday lunch time for brunch. I ordered the cherry black forrest french toast. It was to die for I could not fault it all. The two guys had avocado brushetta with a side of bacon. They both said it was nice. All three meals looked nicely displayed on the... More

I wasn't a fan of the old Monday room, but under new ownership we can't wait to go back. The brunch menu is extensive, don't except to find any of your go to safe options here. Ingredients are used in new, fresh and exciting ways. The coffee was pretty good as well. Service wasn't quick but friendly and helpful. Keep... More

My wIfe and I enjoyed ad dining experience here on a cold Monday evening. We liked the warm intimacy of the old style rooms (there are two of them) The bar had old hardback books below it and memorabilia on the walls. Music was great being light jazz and bluesy material. Service was immpecable and the food top notch. We... More

Nice place.. Scallops entree was amazing so we wer excited for the main. Turned out to be salty both mine and my partner. Perhaps it is their style so people will drink more wine. We went home unsatisfied and did more cooking and eat at home. Waitress is over confident how nice their food is and big servings that one... More

This is a good experience for 'foodies' - those who like to try texture and taste with great presentation. The waitress was attentive almost to a fault. However she did have good knowledge of the menu. There was 6 at our table which was cramped given you are encouraged to share dishes. Nice selection of cocktails. Good balance and taste... More

Lovely staff, very nice food. The atmosphere in the restaurant was relaxed and made the dining experience more pleasureable. The LACK of parking is a NIGHTMARE and detracts from wanting to return to this place. If there was suitable parking then it would be a "must visit again" review. We went on a Monday night, and struggled to find a... More

Went with friends for an enjoyable night out. The restaurant is rather small but lends itself to a nice warm ambiance. The service was friendly and efficient. We were advised that the menu was designed to be shared, maybe with the starters but didn't really see the mains offering this. We selected the squid and goats cheese churros as an... More

Order the scallop entree, you won't regret it!! A bit steep but delicious nevertheless. I ordered chicken for my main, the salad accompaniment was delicious! The chicken was also lovely itself just a little too much for me! And the fish was to die for! Best fish I've ever had. The service was phenomenal - I forget the waiters name... More

This was our first visit to The Monday room, for a relaxing Sunday brunch. We had a breakfast bruschetta and Turkish cauliflower fritters, both with fried instead of poached eggs. They were delicious in taste and well presented. The service was super-quick. The tea was equally well presnted and plentiful. We were looked after by Alice, who was attentive and... More
