    Amazing oysters, so fresh and juicy. Great happy hour deal between 4-6pm. Atmosphere buzzing and great location for people watching with a glass of wine!

    Our waitress was great but food very disappointing. We won’t be rushing back. We have now tried several times and realise it’s all just hype. May have been good years ago but now sits on its laurels. Good for drinks and cocktails but no more.

    The Balcony was not full but still very loud and lively on a Sunday night with the drag queen and ultra loud music. We had a wonderful placement on the Balcony itself but beware this is a very noisy venue and yelling is the only way to be heard above the racket. Service by our waitress Barr was excellent though both the main courses (porchetta and mussels) were disappointing. Beetroot humus (a share plate) was very good, Wine by the glass was awful, no sign that at $18 a glass - pub wine standard white and red. Margarita cocktail better and obviously Balcony is most popular for the cocktails,

    The staff was welcoming and helpful. The food was mediocre and poorly executed (eg salad had too much mayo, fries were cold). Wine was pricey for quality.

    One of our favourite spots in town! Great vibe and atmosphere, tasty food and drinks and good service. Location is central and the happy hour deals (especially the oysters!) are awesome. We'll definitely be back on our next trip!

    The food and drinks were fantastic at the Balcony. The atmosphere of the venue was great with live music, and this was complemented very well with the friendly and attentive service from the staff.

    We went for dinner last night for our anniversary. The greeting, service and atmosphere were good. Some aspects of the meal were excellent. The main course however let the experience down. The fish and chips were over cooked and the ratio of cards to protein about 10 to 1. The seafood foragers platter was a good pick but the fish was a very small serve. For the price point we expected a bit more. Thanks.

    An excellent evening to celebrate my partner's birthday. Having given them a little heads up we were welcomed on arrival and treated wonderfully. The food was great. The only small shame was that there was a clear shift change part way though our visit where the ball was dropped a little, and the offered birthday treat didn't eventuate. Lovely food and atmosphere and would certainly return
