This used to be our favourite place in Coogee. This time we waited over an hour for food, water was forgotten, waitress avoided us and turned her back when we had to walk in from outside to chase up service. Having a new team is no excuse not to say sorry when a customer complains. My wife and I have spent over 1000 dollars here in 6 months. I am not happy. More to say but at the moment I would avoid this place on busy nights as they are all over the place. Such a shame.

Just had a bloody awesome meal, the waitress was great and food was absolutely brilliant. They are happy to do special dishes to suit vegos, but the mushroom ragu was perfect anyway. Try it,you will love it.

Having walked the coastal walk form bondi and in search for some food and to take a break, we came across the black pony cafe. Friendly staff, an open plan lay out which gives a chance to watch the world go and chilled out music in the background. Had an awesome puy lentil salad that had a great balance of flavours with beetroot, hazelnuts and goats cheese. The other half had the spicey chicken salad which wasn't particularly spicey but tasted fine. Felt recharged afterwards with good food in the belly and a relaxing atmosphere to chill in.

Had a lunch at this restaurant, having not visited before. Ordered drinks and food, the drinks arrived quickly but had quite a long wait for the food!! Seemed a little overpriced on food and drinks. Would probably not return.

Loved our meal here. Nice range to choose from. I had the crispy duck breast with beets and snow pea shoots and my friend had the deconstructed king prawn lasagne. Food was perfect, loads of veges, loads of flavor and pleasant attentive and personal service. Ambience was intimate, stylish thoughtful and effective decor. With the folding window seats on to the street it was a little breezy at times but will definitely return when next back in the Eastern suburbs.
