    Food was delicious and well cooked. Server kept taking dishes away when we weren’t completely done so that was a bit annoying.

    The food and general ambiance was good, except we didn’t receive one of the dishes we ordered ( the coca) and we still got charged for it. We realised this afterwards when it was too late. My advice is for the staff/ kitchen to be more careful when serving customers. Other than that the restaurant is nice.

    The food was good. However, the amount of money we paid and the service we received do not match. Unfortunately, some staff did not seem too happy to serve.

    Love the food and it was delicious. Come here with 30% off. Me and my wife ordered 2 entrees which were the field mushroom and octopus. Both were so amazing. Then we had the market fish of the day and the chicken. The fish itself was average But it is so good with the sauce and the condiments come with it. The other main we had was the chicken. It was so juicy andctasty. We also had the roasted potato and cabbage for sides which were good too. Definitely recommend to everyone. It is way too pricy If no discount tho. Overall a good dining experience.

    Food was nice, the starters were really tasty. Drinks were nice too and they do a good happy hour. Unfortunately, the waitress was very abrupt as soon as we arrived. We asked if we could sit outside (as the aircon inside was quite cold) she said ‘outside is full price, inside is 30% off - you can sit outside but only if you pay full price’. There was hardly anyone sat outside or inside and it didn’t fill up the whole time we were there. She also told us that the prawn dish was only available as a full price menu option. Whilst this could be the restaurant policy (which seems unfair), her delivery and customer service was very poor. We felt like second class customers because we had booked through The Fork. Such a shame!

    Food is excellent - the stand out that I've come back for twice now is the octopus with kifler potatoes. The rosemary potatoes (side) were great as well. Just a slight drop for ambience as we were seated near the wine racks (per my request) where unfortunately, we could hear the kitchen playing loud music alongside the ambience music. The noise of two songs playing simultaneously through the night was messy/clashy. Service was generally good. Thanks guys!

    One of my favourite restaurants for a special occasion - wonderful food, excellent and attentive service, and a lovely ambience. it was my friend's birthday and the kitchen surprised us by putting a candle on our dessert of spanish donuts and writing happy birthday in chocolate on the plate!

    Really enjoyed the variety of food and the cocktails were delicious. The waiters were very attentive and made us feel very spoilt It was not very noisy which made it easy to enjoy my friends company.

    It was a wonderful experience for three of us to have a lunch today, and everything was perfect especially service. We will certainly return near future.

    Excellent CBD lunch spot - main was average but doughnuts were lovely. Recommend it although quite pricey.
