Went here for the first time after wanting to try for it ages. We were so excited! The concept is great, the waiter was great and knew about the food, the venue is beautiful, but the food really lets this place down. I hate to say this but it was bland, dry and I sort of felt like I could've... More

Service is always prompt and friendly but the real reason we dine here is for the food! Absolutely amazing every time! Recently had a family members 50th upstairs and we all thoroughly enjoyed our night.

Arrived looking forward to an evening meal out. Not a common event. No record of our booking with waitress questioning whether we'd actually made a booking and when today had we rung. In actual fact my husband had booked more than a week ago. Given a table down the back away from other diners and near the kitchen and cooking... More

My partner and myself like to dine here on special occasions and we always make sure we order 4 different dishes each, eat half of each serving, and swap plates. It's fantastic! We brag to our friends that we eat 8 different meals when we dine there! We are always impressed with the seasonal menu changes and the very attentive... More

Jack &Jill is a different way of dining, you don't just order a main meal, you order 3 or 4 of their mini meals on one plate. When the food arrives it is a Oohah experience, it is art on a plate, simply stunning and tastes amazing. If you are in the region, do your palate a favour and dine... More

It's always refreshing when a restaurant offers a different take on ordering and presenting food. This place achieves this brilliantly. You are offered a choice between 3 or 4 dishes from a menu listing depending on your appetite and preferred expenditure. The options are quite varied and quite delicious. While waiting for the meal, you are offered a complimentary loaf... More

I took my children here for dinner last night based upon good TA reviews. 50-60 min after ordering the children's meals arrive...how long does it take to fry up frozen calamari rings? I had braised cheek, thai fish cake and Tempura chicken. Arrived 60-65min after ordering. Cheek - 3/5 pretty average Thai Fish - 2/5, just mush...not crisp as a... More

Hi Mike, Bit shocking to see such review for the business. We do apologies if you and family had to wait for food bit longer but its hard to see longer waiting time in our restaurant with two seatings so it can not be over 1 hour at all. We are currently investigating this in detail. thanks More

Dinner with family and all chose a variety of dishes which are in small portions. Had at least 10 different in our 14 tasting plates and could not fault any. A great way to try something different. Deserts were large but worthwhile if you could fit in.

Dinner here with friends - and what a great recommendation this turned out to be. Tasting plates of decent proportions - We thought great value - $33 for three dishes or $44 for four dishes all on the one plate. We each ordered different tapas for our meal so that we could sample pretty much the entire menu. Not one... More

Having a range of dishes in small portions is a great idea and the selection is excellent. Will definitely return and highly recommend this restaurant
