“Great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

When you are travelling for work it is just nice some times to have great food and great service. Don't come to Burp looking for a steak and 3 veg because that is not what they are about. Good wholesome modern food. If you want to gorge, go to sizzler or maccas, come here to enjoy nice wine, food and service.

“Expensive - adiquate”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Eat there one night while on a business trip. The menu is comprehensive. The food is tasty but very expensive and small portions. I had a vegetarian platter three small tomatoes, two small slices of Haloumi cheese, two mushrooms and some broccoli. Cost over $30. My client had beef cheeks - he said the taste was nice. The presentation and service is stunning.

“Try the degustation menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Four of us had the degustation menu at Burp last night. The interesting and well chosen wine list made it easy to find good matches to the well designed series of dishes. From the pork belly starter and the delicious seafood dish through to the meat dishes and rich chocolate fondant dessert the meal was well paced and service excellent. Highly recommended.

“Lovely food but small portion sizes ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

I had my birthday dinner at burp and drinks at the dispensary next door. Burp is one of our favourite restaurants and never fails to disappoint. Had a big table of 8 on a Wednesday night and we all ordered starters and bread first off. Meals came out very quickly but two male members of our party commented on the tiny portion size of the sweet corn soup entree. Said flavour was delicious but could've been a bit bigger. Main meals also were served quickly and flavours were great but again portion sizes were commented on, especially the steak main. Most of the boys left happy but slightly hungry. Special mention to the bartender next door at the dispensary, very informative when explaining the cocktails and their ingredients and very charming with his service :) i always recommend Burp highly and we will definitely be back.
