“Stunning food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

Although quite pricey the food at Mr. Hive is definitely worth it. A great venue for large parties and intimate enough for more romantic dining occasions. Centrally located, it can make a great starting point for a night out and to meet people who are otherwise based everywhere else.

I dined with a friend over several smaller dishes and an amazing cheese board, but there are some interesting main courses to choose from and, if there's enough room left, a great selection of desserts.

“I enjoyed Mr Hives”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Whilst the place was fairly empty the service was excellent, just enough.
The selection was wide ranging and the food of excellent quality. The Salmon was outstanding. It is not a "cheap eat out" but for the price I would rate it as good value.

“Good food, disappointing watermelon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

I was staying the crown metropol and found this restaurant. It had a high but reasonable price. I came here for breakie. Great food, pancakes were outstanding! When I ate some watermelon though, it was very disappointing. It didn't taste like watermelon, more chemicals. A great place, but do not choose watermelon in the buffet!!!

Delicious and plenty of choice no matter what diet or non-diet your on! Front of house staff were a little unwelcoming but overall I would come back!

“Great ambiance, Great service, great deserts!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Wedding anniversary dinner on Friday night, we got a complimentary exquisite entrée, for main course my husband had lamb and I had beef, both meals were good although my beef was a little burnt but overall was a good experience. The desert was amazing, best desert I have ever tried in my life (white chocolate, mango, coconut and basil purée). The restaurant is beautiful, modern art decor and they had live music which was a nice thing. We were away from the stage so it was perfect and not loud. Our waiter was really good, very polite and was checking on us making sure everything was fine, he completed the whole experience and made it outstanding. I would totally recommend this place
