This was a great restaurant with exceptional customer service. Our group shared a variety of small tapas meals and the outstanding dish was the crispy fried king prawns with Szechuan spice & sweet soy.

The atmosphere was fantastic and the feel of the restaurant was just amazing.

This was a first for me & I will definitely be returning and recommend this restaurant to all.

My friend & I visited on a Saturday night 3 weeks ago and, despite her praise of it in the past and the fact it was expensive, we were both extremely disappointed. Firstly, there was no Australian champagne on the wine list and this in a tourist area. Shame on you Pony! Secondly, we both ordered Wagyu steaks ($42) and not only were they very ordinary in flavour, they were tough and had no marbling (the hallmark of Wagyu). We both had had superior steaks from Coles and Woolworths supermarkets and felt someone was being ripped off and that it was us. Dessert was fine and the Dutch waiter was excellent and charming.

It's been a few years since I've been to Pony and I'd worried slightly that it would be not as good as it used to be... WRONG! Still glorious. We sat outside on the huge shared bench. Lovely night. Amazing, efficient friendly waitstaff and beautiful food. Loved the cocktails too esp the "My little pony".. will be back soon.

Best food in many months in a restaurant. Service absolutely fantastic and friendly despite it being a very busy sat night on a bank holiday weekend. Could not rate the service highly enough. Overall a great experience and would recommend to others.

An absolute gem of a restaurant with brilliant food and great service - and an excellent wine list.
We were looked after by a couple of delightful staff who guided us through the menu towards a fantastic and memorable meal.
