    We expected more from food that was not as fine dining as we anticipated. It was a pleasant evening

    Definitely a great dining experience. Had the matching beverages which totally enhanced the flavours of the dishes. AMAZING! Will definitely come back

    My husband and I went to Automata to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had the 7 course tasting menu and it was delicious! Each dish so different and tasty. The waiters explained the wine and the dishes served so well and it all came out well timed. The only thing we would've liked different, is the seating. We were sat on a communal table and would've preferred a table on our own.

    Great ambience. Food flavours were mostly too salty or a bit and miss on the texture combinations in the attempt to make it looks appealing for the Instagram.

    This is my second visit. Dishes were very exquisitely presented and tasty, attentive and friendly staff. It can get a little noisy when fully booked. While it is very pleasant, didn’t really wow me this time.

    Good if not any outstanding highlights. I know it’s not super expensive on a per head basis but I think the price tag outweighs the food. By the time you spend $700 for 4 people i think I would preferred to spend $1000 for a few highlights

    The service was excellent and staff were all friendly & personable. We had the 5 course and sake recommended by the sommelier. All 5 courses were good with the standouts being the black angus, stracciatella and the pasta. The sake was a good recommendation.

    My partner and I are return customers whenever there is a menu change and a special occasion. We went back last night for his birthday and the staff were so warm and welcoming. The new menu by the team was amazing as always. Keep setting that bar high!

    Very enjoyable! Service was friendly and fantastic, and the menu was interesting! there were only one or two courses that we didn’t absolutely love but most others were fantastic (we did seven courses without wine). Would definitely return!

About the restaurant

Flooring it!

The guys at Automata have got their foot on the gasl and there’s no sign of them stopping. Ex Momofuku sous chef Clayton Wells has kept his new restaurant venture well under wraps but now it's open and ready to serve. This is Wells' first solo restaurant and he brings a movable approach to a frequently changing Mod-Oz/European style five-course menu. The food is a reflection of the dining room which exerts a sense of freedom and energy that's addictive. Come and experience this new Chippo sensation.

Best dish: come and decide for yourself!
