We ordered six tapas meals between the three of us- this included prawns, scallops, mushrooms and fresh ocean trout- generous servings to share. The share dessert - which was enough for four(not two as stated in the menu)- was excellent. Complemented with excellent service and good wine (available by the glass) it was a great night out.

I dined at De Vine with a small group of co-workers. We had lamb, fish, steak, and calamari and prawns. Everyone was happy with the meals. Portions were a bit on the small side (maybe that is just my American view). The calamari dish was three or four stuffed calamari! Desserts were amazing, especially rhubarb. The place was packed on a Wed. evening so it is quite popular. Make a reservation before going.

We went to this place because it was close by to our location. We came in and it was a nice place. We started off with the water and the waiter was nice. Although I think she may have been tired because she kept knocking things over (maybe about three times while we were dinning).

We had the mains and ordered the duck leg, risotto and pasta. We were VERY disappointed with the quality of the food. Firstly the duck leg wasn't that great tasting. The risotto was okay. I've paid $5 for much better risotto. It was probably the worst risotto I've tried. Thirdly the pasta was a AWFUL! The pasta had NO taste whatsoever. I have had al dente pasta before but it was so hard it was very disappointing. I have never paid SO much for food and leaving so unsatisfied.

To finish of we had the dessert. We had the Strawberry sandwich, banana pudding and the de vine dessert selection 1. The Strawberry sandwich tasted boring. De Vine dessert selection was a good idea. The banana pudding tasted amazing we ordered 2. However, the presentation wasn't up to scratch. When the second one came out it looked like a completely different dessert to the first one we ordered and the pudding was tilted.

I hope you can use this criticism to change your menu (or chef) and maybe have better tasting food, the food was so not worth what we paid for. I wish we just left without paying.

Thank you.
