Our first visit to David's Off Oxford and our party of six including two teenagers thoroughly enjoyed the New Years Eve dining experience. Offering a limited set menu for $80.00 per head, on a very busy night the food was excellent, very tasty and despite the set menu, offered enough variety to satisfy us all. David and the staff were very friendly and informative. We will certainly be back for a "normal" evening in 2011 in anticipation that some of the earlier TA review comments have been addressed - they certainly were not evident during our visit.

extremely slow service, water glasses too hot to touch, milkshake is a hot glass, drinks arried as we where ready to pay the bill, unable to understand wait staff, David who was lovely on the phone and when we first arrived delivered very nice meals but with sarcastic and rude comments because one thing extra was asked to be added to a very limited meal.
very disappointed sorry we waisted $200

We had dinner here for in October 2008, and I was really looking forward to it as I had been a bit of a fan of the cafe that David had run previously. It's a very small restaurant tucked in just off Oxford Street (behind Cinema Cafe) - it was a very cold night so they didn't have the outside area set up, which doubles the service area. Certainly it is very appealing to arrive as the ambience is lovely and the tables were organised to provide as much privacy as possible, which was great. The waitstaff were friendly and all in all it was great - until the food arrived. This was a great dissapointment, both of our entrees were very bland, and our mains were overcooked and had very little visual appeal about them. The dessert was ok, but nothing special. Perhaps the chef had a really (really, really!!) bad night. It's a shame really, because it had everything else going for it.

So romantic, and David is great! He will make sure you get the best out of your order. Beautifully presented food, tastes even better. Cosy and intimate atmosphere, the best place for a romantic date or have breakfast outside and feel like youre in a French movie.

Intimate setting, really lovely food, attentive service. Not ON Oxford St, so likely is missed by quite a few people who amass there.
