“Duck and Veal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Good selection of different main meats.
Starters/sides were nice: garlic bread, bruchetta and pumpkin soup were all very tasty and well priced.
Duck special had an orange sauce that was way too sweet but the waitress said it would be and suggested I had it on the side and I'm glad she did. The veal came in a lovely cheesy and tomato sauce, nicely cooked. The vegetables that came with both meals were a little crunchy however but there was a good variety.
Popular with students so it was pretty loud and busy, particularly as it was a Wednesday. But service was timely, we didn't feel like we were waiting.
Waiters were friendly.
Recommended for a cheapish and cheerful, quick night out. You can BYO.

“Excellent food at reasonable prices + BYO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

I've been here on several occasions and food has always been very good and the staff are very friendly and customer-oriented. They have BYO which is great and brings the price of the total bill down a bit which I'm sure is very much appreciated by the students in the area (close to UNSW). Recommended!
