    Alter Ego has never disappointed me and I have been there a few times for breakfast and dinner. The food is great and the staff are so friendly and welcoming.

    A great additional to the Civic area. Lovely, friendly professional staff. The staff always go out of their way to assist. Great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffees or snacks and drinks. A return patron who recognises good service and a warm friendly vibe. Summer or Winter.

    The service was very slow and it wasnt particularly busy. It took nearly 2 hrs to receive our food after ordering, and there was only 2 of us. The food itself I couldn't fault.

    The main food was ok, but the dessert was a real let down. We ordered the pavlova. Dried fruit instead of fresh made the dish too sweet. There was also not enough texture. Everything was sloppy and wet. Why not stick to the original? It wasn’t a pavlova.

    Everything was great, the drinks were just so slow. Food was great and we did not actually receive a sides dish we ordered. Drinks took over 30 mins for wine, I also heard the table close to us complain about the delay in their drinks. Overall really good, They just need to improve on the drinks service a lot!!

    Food is great, flavours are amazing. I would definitely return to Alter Ego. Kitchen was very slow getting good out we had a 40 minute wait in between meals.

    They have a great little area slightly separate for groups but the service to this area was very poor. We had to request water for the table, it took ages for someone to take our coffee and food orders then we had to call someone over to order more coffees. We appeared to have been forgotten in that space but it was a lovely little area.

    Waited for too long to be served, outdoor seating area doesn't have heater as other restaurants, we were cold and food got cold very soon as well. Beside these, food generally was good.
