    This little restaurant was a great find. Food was superb, the Halloumi was the best we’d ever tried. The service was fast and accomodating. We will definitely be back. What a gem this was. Our tummies are still singing.

    Very friendly and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. The felafel were crisp on the outside and the shish chicken was full of flavour,

    The staff and service were great. We were sitting next to the door and it was a windy day, so we requested the door to be closed. Everytime someone came in/went out the door the wait staff ensured the door was closed again. Little things that have a big impact. All of the food dishes we ordered were delicious. Will be going back again.

    We loved our meal at Above Par. From being seated at a temporary table as we were a little early, which was cleaned especially for us and where we decided to stay, the food, the wine and the friendly service were all excellent. All the dishes were bursting with flavour and wonderfully varied. We were also given good advice about how much to order which was extremely helpful. Thank you (and for all the photos you obligingly took of us ????)

    Deliciously seasoned and well cooked, refined middle eastern food. Most places are too salty, too dry, too sloppy, too noisy - this was absolutely perfect for a date night. Get the mini beef risotto (amazing!), halloumi, cauliflower, lamb kippah And warm hummus! So good.

    Food selective. Good halloumi, eggplant dip, but ravioli and calamari disappointing. Pastry desert good, but would have been better with Turkish ice cream Instead of ordinary Aussie vanilla

    We had a lovely date night at Above Par - it is quite new and we really enjoyed it. My wife is a bit of hummus snob, so she thought the hummus could be better but we loved the shakshuka (it was amazing!) and flamed kofte. The service was really good but it was a bit noisy at times, so we found it hard to talk to each other. Overall a great experience though.
