“Beautiful lunch”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

This restaurant is clean, fresh and light which we loved as a group of girls lunch - ing. Wine list was a bit expensive for the by glass side, but service staff were knowledgable in recommending something to our tasting and within our price range. Food was flawless, flavours all complimented one another, we will be back!

“Vegan degustation”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

We had a 5 course vegan degustation. The dinner started with 4complimentary tasting courses, and continued through the degustation finishing with two desert courses and a tea/infusion of Australian native fruits. The presentations were exquisite and the tastes to match. One of the group was heard to say the taste was so wonderful he thought he might cry! There were tofu and tempeh courses, with delicate sauces, fabulous puréed, perfectly balanced infusions, quinoa encrusted avocado -too much to describe. Highly recommended. This is a great developement for Vegans -really fine dining for vegans. WOW!

“The food was artistic.”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

My husband and I were so impressed by urbane, it truly was an amazing experience.
You can tell the chef loves to create beautiful food, its interesting and surprising.
When you go, you go for the experience. I would highly recommed it. If you look at the amount of detail that goes into each dish, it really is value for money.

My husband and I ate at Urbane again last night, and again we were impressed by the food and the service!
It is fantastic to have a vegetarian degustation option.
Great food, great drinks, great service = Great time!

“Amazing yet again!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Well it had been nearly a year since our last visit, and after dumping (hehe) our daughter at the mother in law we finally had a chance to have a romantic dinner with just the 2 of us. We decided to go the day after Valentines day as we don't like to be rushed and prefer the 7 course degustation rather then the smaller 5 course.
Well this time we had a lovely table upstairs (even though the table we had last time downstairs is more intimate). The food we had was again amazing, from start to finish I enjoyed every dish, and I love how we always get "surprise" dishes before the actual "degustation" starts. This time we had another surprise meal half way through and it was Barramundi shoulder in some kind of special Asian sauce (yummy!!!) my husband said it was the best fish dish he has tasted in a very long long time (and we do like going out for dinner very often).
But what makes Urbane special is not only the food and the ambiance.....it's the service, and I have to make another special mention (as I wrote a review about him last year) is to Michael our waiter (you won't miss the South African accent) He gives hands down the best service a customer could ever wish for, even if he is busy, he makes you feel like you are that extra special.....So Urbane do whatever you need to do to keep him! :-)
I have also taken a couple of photos of the wonderful dishes (much to my husbands embarrassment) + one of us and Michael.
So do yourselves a favour and book in!.
