Came here for our monthly friends dinner/ catch up and had a wonderful evening. Service was fast and friendly, food was hot and delicious and wine list was entirely adequate. Will be back again.

Great priced 3 course set menu for groups with a choice of 4 items for each course. Restaurant is tiny but service very good. Food came out at a good pace - portions where fairly large and we all rolled out of there very full.

We went to this resto around 9PM Sunday night without reservations. They managed to seat us after about a 5 minute wait. The place was packed but the staff were attentive, informing and very friendly. We started sharing amongst the 3 of us with the Charcuterie Plate and Scallops. Wonderful assortment on the plate and the scallops were done just... More

The service was good and the food fantastic. We opted for the Snapper special but the steaks appeared huge. Prices were reasonable. Tables are small and too close together and the noise level was high.

For weekend lunch menu, grilled scotch fillet is always my favorite; berry smoothie is yum and good value too; dinner menus come with surprises a lot of times; I like that brown sugar creates its special menu from time to time.

We tried our luck the 1st night but the place was fully so I booked 8:30pm, Friday 5th evening. We booked an outdoor table as we came with our 3 children. Clearly a local Favourite and we waited 15´ for our table and 45´ for our food but really worth it ! Great tastes and ingredients, main dishes & desserts... More

This wasn't a bad experience, nor was it a great one. 4 men for a Sunday lunch for a catch up after 20 years. It was busy, but we had booked and our table was ready when we arrived. The food, I thought was reasonably priced for Bondi, I had the Scotch Fillet sandwich which was, again, average. The others... More

If you are after a simple meal, stay away. This place offers dinner combinations that are surprising, unusual and beautifully blended. The restaurant is small, so book earlier as it gets packed and noisy. The friendly service matches the cheerful atmosphere. There are daily specials but honestly the regular menu does not need to be supplemented - it's great already.
