Decided on the Taroona Lounge Bar for a meal for two as we had been before for a Mothers Day Dinner on a previous visit. I decided on the chicken bourguignon fettuccini - consisted of bacon, chicken, red wine, mushrooms, garlic, tomato, cream and parmesan cheese. Meal was tasty - but too many mushrooms and not enough parmesan. Husband had beef vindaloo - plated with a tower of rice, bread and salad. Not enough of the beef vindaloo on the plate as he was still a little hungry afterwards. Menu had a good variety of choices and the average price per person is around $25.00... Lamb rack and scotch fillet steak at around $35.00 each. We will venture back as a few of the other dishes looked appealing. Place could do with a bit more heating, I took the coat off but soon put it back on...

We have visited here a couple of times and have had consistently good food and service. We have visited in a group with a number of kids, the kids food was plentiful and as good as the adults, the service was efficient and the kids food was bought out first so the little people were happy!!

I have visited Taroona Bar and Cafe four times for dinner with friends and family and have had repeatedly good service! There is plenty of room between tables, giving everyone personal space. Staff are always friendly and attentive, often asking how things are or if you need more drinks. Food is consistently delicious and well-priced. The wine list is small, but the selections available aren't bad.

My only issue? I can't say I agree with people who comment that the restaurant has a 'lovely view' - the view is of a carpark and the backyards of the apartments below. Nothing special.

That aside, it is a really lovely place to go for dinner. Highly recommended.

We booked on the day for a night meal, have been there before once, which was ok. This time it was tonight! Arrived on time and noticed that nearly every patron still had their coats on, why?
We were given a table near the window, however upon seeing others looking cold, asked for a table closer to the bar (a little warmer). Commented to our lovely wait staff who said that the floor heating was on but not doing much on such a cold night. We put our hands down on the floor to find it stone cold. Atmosphere could be excellent if warmer, it's a nice restaurant.
Food - had steak, which was generally fine (4 out of 6 had steak). But steak was cold as was pepper sauce. Should we have said something..... Probably.
However, staff excellent, funny, great with our table and others.
Would we go again, not sure, they need to HEAT the restaurant. Wonder what others thought?

Had not been for quite awhile and thought we would try again. I guess it depends on what you order. Two of us had plum & ginger Duck. It was nicely presented. The duck was pink, very chewy and had soft blubbery skin on it. The vegies were firm. My husband had a Prawn & Chorizo Pizza with extra prawns. It was extra good. Our other friend had the Lamb Chops which were very good Desserts were quite nice. Would try again but give the Duck a miss.
