The Pickle experience is a bit like entering Willy Wonka's Factory - it's fun, fabulous, and sometimes a little freaky! The duck parfait and chocolate lollipops are a great way to start, followed by duck slider, deep fried egg with asparagus, then ribs, and ending with pine nut and rosemary set cream... and there's all those other wonders! Setting is cool, and service is relaxed but professional. Highly recommend.

We ate at Pickle for a family birthday (8 adults, 2 teens) 6 days after it opened. we booked a table for 10, but when we arrived, they had lost their bookings book! i would have thought it was all computerised, but there you go! they quickly assembled a table for us and it was no bother at all. the decor is dark, but elegant and simple.

you enter off the street where you would have gone into Sandwiches. not sure whether that's still there or not. the first thing i noticed were the AGEE jars hanging from the ceiling as a feature light fitting - way cool! the menus are printed in black on white paper and rolled up and placed in agee jars on the table with the cutlery. i like this idea. the menus are right there and management can change them with ease at any time.

the menu is TAPAS and you order as you go, i.e. place your first order, then if you want more of the same thing, just ask and they bring you more. i think for the 10 of us it worked out at around $30 a head. pretty damn good. the food was presented in really creative ways and was very tasty. it also arrived in timely fashion. the staff went OUT OF THEIR WAY with the service, obviously wanting to make a good impression in their first week, which they did.

the manager, or maitre'd was shaking hands with everyone as they left, and greeted everyone on arrival. he was working the tables throughout our meal to make sure everyone had everything they wanted. when we left, he said he'd put my daughter's name (+10) on the 'door' for the following night for Tiki Tane (we had gone there for her 21st birthday family dinner).

Highly recommended.
