I have been to this restaurant a number of times over the past years and always find it to have great food and very good wine selection, including a number available by the glass. Staff are very friendly. There are good gluten free options and the kitchen staff were most accommodating in changing their dishes to cater for dietary requirements. The meals are also a good size- not too big but quite generous and guys will find they are properly catered for. Quite a noisy environment but not so bad that it detracted from the evening. Sure there Re probably places with fancier fare and more romantic ambience, but it's hard to beat this restaurant for good value and terrific dining. I give it 8 out of 10 - and I always give a conservative mark :-). We'll be back!

The Continental

Consistently good - 1 week, 1 month, or 1 year order the same and you will get the same

Under the same ownership for a number of years the quality standard has been maintained. The duck dish which consists of duck being presented 3 ways is amazing and being so good is the only dish I can coronet on, however others in the party and/or with my wife have all been very happy with their selection. My wife loves lamb fry and bacon and considers herself an expert with this dish and places the Continental's dish the best of all. Every Wednesday they do an offal night which is very popular

The food was great, and servings were very generous, as was the service. House champagne for $7.50/glass, excellent. Enjoyed the sticky beef ribs, the meat fell off the bone followed by a delightful brulee.

Nothing snobbish about this place, recommended.

Was taken by a friend who lives nearby. Had the chicken with lime risotto and was not disappointed, although asparagus and edamame salad was a bit thin in both. Great value and good choice of wines. Definitely worth a visit.

Odered the seafood risoto and the soy lime chicken breast. Both were very well made. Atmosphere is nice and cozy.
Cheers!
