    Yummy as always! The heirloom tomatoes with smoked ricotta is a stand out dish - very special. Lovely atmosphere and friendly, helpful service :)

    Apera is a fabulous local. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and cosy. Food is delicious with an emphasis on their wood-fired oven. Think delicious roast lamb, whole fish or roast chook. Inventive sides and vegetable dishes such as heirloom tomatoes with house smoked ricotta and trout terrine with fennel.

    The food was really good, the first staff that seated and greeted us was very welcoming and good explanation of food pairing and recommendations. The other waitstaff though didn't say a word when serving us so that was a little letdown, other than that the ambience and overall experience was great! Would come again.

    Very friendly and accommodating service. The open kitchen and layout of the restaurant makes for an entertaining dining experience. Food was all very nice.

    The food was great. We had the squid entree which was on special - it was delicious! Also ordered the chickpea fritters which were scrumptious! And then we ordered the kumera gnocchi and summer salad and finished off with the mango lime mascarpone! Everything was delicious! I would definitely go again!:)

    Smoked ricotta and tomato was divine! The meat dishes were ok though they lacked a lot of flavor and they didn’t have salt at the table- maybe we’ll get the chicken next time. Lovely attentive service!

    While the food was very good the service was persistent. We had to send them away 5 times before we were ready to order desserts. Then at 9.40 they literally started washing the kitchen floor as we were finishing our evening. Good thing we started at 6pm. They obviously like to get to bed early!

    Really yummy, interesting dishes that showcase fresh, local produce. The eggplant special was seriously good. Staff are friendly and the restaurant is both modern and cosy. Would highly recommend!

    There was a party on in the Restaurant and i was so loud we were having to almost yell. Not the end of the world just made the Dinner not as romantic for Valentines day.

    Delicious food , menu changes every couple on months , and is consistently of high standard. Choices are limited but well thought through with exciting flavour combinations. Friendly welcome and service. A true gem
