“Menu let down”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Who changed the menu! Big mistake! A few moons ago you would rave about how fantastic the food was. Vietnamese French menu was so delicious.. Now so bland and boring. Service very slow. Took ages to get served and for our food to arrive. Now if there was a lot of preparation involved with our dishes I would understand. Very simple and tasteless. Come on management bring back the old Libertines. Someone's voiced their disappointment to me about Libertines not long ago. Silly me didn't listen. And one more thing portions very small .

“Expensive Pretentious Food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Went for dinner with a group of friends on a Saturday night and was very disappointed. The menu and prices suggest great food but it tastes as its very best average. We were a large group and shared quite a few dishes and nothing stood out as special. The service wasn't good either. A couple in our group got their main meals 15 min earlier than everyone else. The waiters were not very friendly, cocky and one smelt of bad B.O.

“3 hours for lunch!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Recently went to the libertine at the barracks for lunch on a Sunday. Went with a large group from work about 30 people. Booking was for midday, they weren't ready and we sat around 12.20pm I can live with that. Set menu seeing such a large group, we were served 6 dishes, with extremely long waits between courses, no info provided about what each dish was, just placed on the table and staff left. Table service appeared to be a bit random with staff losing track of who they had served what. So seated at 12.20 and left at 3.30pm far too long. Having said that the food was good very fresh and tasty, but still not worth the wait. Unfortunately would not recommend.

“Don't go if you are Hungry”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

About three years ago had a great meal here with my wife and teenage son.
returned in May 2013 hoping for the same enjoyable experience only to be extremely disappointed.
Entrée was one piece of your choosing $8 to $10 per piece. ( The New Shanghai 8 pieces for $8)
The mains were all stewed and of little variation with the exception of the duck curry. The rice arrived before the entrée.
The drinks menu was OK but not outstanding.
We had dessert ( Ice-Cream Cone) around the corner at an Ice Cream bar.
