“Great place to catch up....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Ten of us stopped for a light snack. We ordered pizza and it was fabulous. Others had Bruschetta which was a generous serve. Friends say the chips were really good. Friendly attentive staff. Could benefit from table service rather than having to go up and order.

“Yuck”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Excessively watery scrambled eggs just ruined everything else on the plate. So. much. liquid.

Inedible, even after me soaking 2 napkins to mop up the liquid. Toast, hashbrown, bacon all soggy.

What a waste of money.

“Wonderful food good service very friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Been to this restaurant several times. Each time the food was excellent service good and the venue very well set out. U can have a light meal or the whole deal. Reasonably priced Would suggest u try the lamb salad and the mixes grill skewers.

“A new face on the block”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

The latest incarnation on a busy corner of Norwood Parade, Cafe Ivy will need to be good to survive, let alone thrive. My visit was only a couple of weeks after opening day, and some teething issues were evident. Menu is 'Mediterranean' - pasta, pizza, grilled meats, seafood, salads: there's already half a dozen competitors within two blocks doing this, so Ivy is going to have to come up with a point of difference to compete. Owner Pierre is hands on, kitchen competent, wine list brief but good value, ambience bright and plenty of outdoor seating- a good start. Will definitely be back.
