    Great food, but the table was a bit tight. The restaurant was fully booked.

    Very busy time of the year, food was good, but took a while to be delivered, and service great given its christmas and during peak lunch hour. The atmosphere was good and bustling in general,

    initially wary of larger Darling Harbour restaurants, we were pleasantly surprised at the quality and taste here. We ordered a selection of entrees, calamari was tender and tasty, the arancini with the red pepper sauce were light and crispy with a rich sauce and the mussels were really tasty as well. Servings were a good size, when we added the bruschetta pizza, we couldn't finish it all. Can recommend the entrees, we didn't have mains, as they didn't catch our interest as much.

    Great views and good service. Dish portion was huge, we had a great time. The price is reasonable and at half price was very good. Wish they had a wider selection of italian sodas and beers but rest all great. thanks! Recommend the arancini and the risotto.

    The environment by the water and the food are all good with big portion size. However, the service has room for improvement. First of all, we booked for 11.30 because some of us need to go back for meeting at 1pm. When we arrived, we were told that the kitchen was not open until 12 noon. Why then do they take booking from 11.30? Anyway, we can accommodate that and use the time to catch up and decide on the order. We placed our order before 12 but did not get our food until 1230 (that was after we questioned the waiter on the delay). Also note that there were other customers who came after us yet had already been served before us. Why? Due to the delay, we have to cancel 2 of our orders and one of us had to leave before the food was finished. Lastly, when the bill came, the 50% was not applied and we had to request for the bill to be reissued. Luckily we checked. Otherwise, it would have been a good experience and value for money with the 50% offer. Thank you.

    Waitress was very kind and lovely. But food took a long time to come out. We were there for almost 2hrs waiting for food. The kilpatrick oysters had so much sauce that it was salty and almost inedible. Steak was overcooked. Truffle mash was average and asparagus were yummy. Would rate as average to below average dining experience.

    We had a reservation & we were greeted by a wonderful hostess. We didn’t wait long to be taken to our table. The place was packed. Our waitress was attentive. I had the grilled prawns & panacotta & enjoyed both immensely

    My group of 9 friends booked here for our Christmas dinner. Big plus that we didn't have to order off a set menu or pay any extra service fees because we had over 8 people, so that was good. Food was quite delicious. We all ordered a variety which included pizza, pasta, steaks and calzones. The food was good and decent sized and the steaks were cooked perfectly. Only negatives would be that it was a bit hot where we were sitting which was all the way at the back corner of the restaurant. Also it was a bit difficult to get the attention of any of the workers. But that was it really. I would consider coming back here.

    Faulty Towers from start to finish. From not having our booking to bringing incorrect order. The experience was underwhelming. Great setting, disappointing outcome.

    Food was pretty tasty and generous in serving. But service was dreadfully slow, especially for office workers who are on the clock. It took nearly 30 mins for the single entrée of calamari to arrive and another 20 mins for the mains to show up. To their credit, the servers were friendly.

    My biggest disappointment was the extensive wait at the bar for drinks, waited 25+ minutes on numerous trips to get drinks. The 2 for 1 offer was great but understaffed. 2 bar staff with 40 people in line ordering cocktails clearly not enough. Also was not happy the waitress mentioned I had a discounted booking in front of my business clients.
