Although I've been downstairs to the bar I only just realised there was a 'supper club' upstairs! It did not dissappoint!

After recently spending time in Italy I was impressed with the authenticity of the atmosphere and food. It is a intimate space, warm with lovely lighting and furniture (my only complaint was that we were sat underneath a speaker and the music was too occasionally too loud to hear each other).

The menu is small but offers a nice range of dishes. We ordered the chicken, pork and red wine & lamb ragu. The food was simply outstanding. Serving size was large. The taste and presentation perfect. We were offered complimentary bread which was great.

Service couldn't be faulted :-) and price of meals reasonable.

So excited for this great new local and will definitely be back.

The Cavalier Restaurant is situated upstairs from the bar area. It is a lovely cozy restaurant which has been beautifully decorated with Chesterfield lounges and chandeliers and had a lovely ambience. From the moment we arrived the service was impeccable without being intrusive. The menu is not hugely extensive but has a broad selection of meals and our party of six were all satisfied with our choices. The meals were beautifully cooked and the mains were reasonably priced. The favourite meal at our table was the lamb and red wine ragu.
A lovely night and we are looking forward to returning.

This place could be great if the staff (and looks like the owner) didn't act so up themselves. It seems like females are treated a bit better so if you do choose to try this place, bring a female companion. Definitely won't be spending my money here.

These guys have nailed it! Great atmosphere, fantastic service and awesome menu! Great to see a restaurant/bar where you can hang out casually or treat yourself and dress up for the occasion. Most importantly it's affordable and the quality is outstanding value, highly recommend the chocolate salted fondant and the espresso martini's

Thank you for a great night and can not wait to return!

The Cavalier is a lovely cozy space with beautiful Chesterfield lounges and warm decor! Staff are attentive without being intrusive from calling you to confirm booking to refilling your glass. There was a delicious complimentary bread to start! Polenta fries were very nice! Main meals are reasonably priced, however dessert is not! Serving sizes are very small for $11 a pop! I cannot say this is the best Italian food I have tasted but overall a pleasant experience.
