My husband and I called in for a quick lunch on Saturday - never having been there before. What a treat! We were seated promptly, water was brought straight away (+ menus), waiter returned after a little while to take our order, and we were eating within 15 minutes. The food was delicious and service impeccable (we chose from the half-price lunch menu). We'll be back.

Can't fault this place.

We turned up to have a quick lunch. Walked in and was sat down immediately.

They have a great choice of beers to choose from.

We had 2 course lunch for $22 each. As it was so cheep we weren't expecting it to be that great.

Both courses were excellent. We both had croquettes to start then my wife had chicken and pumpkin salad and I had the pork belly. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted lovelly.

I would highly recomend this place and will defiantly be going again.

The only reason I have not given this restaurant 5 out of 5 is that we have not managed to date to get the seating quite right whether there is 2 of us or a group. It is either too cramped, too noisy or a bit too drafty. One thing you can definitely rely on with this lovely suburban restaurant though is the great food. We have eaten here on several occasions and each time the food has been fantastic. The service is wonderful and consistent I know my husband gives it 10 out of 10 for its selection of boutique beers. The wines are not too shabby either.

I can highly recommend the pork belly, it melts in your mouth. The lamb is also amazing. All the meals to date have been faultless and the portion sizes are definitely good value for money without being oversized.

Although not the cheapest of places to visit the fact that you can rely on good food, good service makes it worth while.

Family group of 27 celebrating 80th Birthday. WOW, what a fantastic choice. We choose the 2 course lunch and supplied our own birthday cake. The food from from this menu was varied and fantastic and everyone enjoyed it greatly. Staff did a great job serving the cake that we brought along. The level of service we received was exceptional and we have Sissy to thank for this, she was great. Everyone is planning a return trip to enjoy the food again. Big thank you also to Adam for ensuring it all went smoothly. Food cost fantastic, drink cost was just a little expensive.

We had a wonderful lunch to celebrate a birthday in Portabella. Not overly pricey, not a very long wait for our food, very attentive and friendly staff, and the food itself was sublime (as were the drinks and coffees.) Highly recommended, we will be back to try the rest of the menu.
