    The atmosphere and staff were good. Our chicken and brisket were very dry to eat which was a shame. Dessert was nice. everything else was good. Friendly staff.

    This was our first visit to Counting House we had flies constantly annoying us at the table, we ordered garlic bread as an entree and it took a long time to come, we had to ask the waitress to chase it up. Main course was steak with peppercorn sauce and the sauce was exceptionally salty which I reported to the waiter and the chef advised that it was ok. It wasn’t OK at all.

    Lovely atmosphere. Fun and attentive staff. Would have liked a few more options on menu ( I’m a bit fussy) We wanted a dip share plate and they created one for us despite it not being on menu. Thank you! ( maybe add a dip etc small entree share platter) Would def go again.

    Noise was a bit of an issue. Busy because it’s a good eatery and pleasant atmosphere. Other wise couldn’t fault the evening. We will be back again soon.

    Always a pleasure going to counting house, friendly welcome and tasty food. I highly recommend going. Great happy hour during the week and steak night on Wednesday nights is always good. Best place in Mornington

    Good menu and good service —food was very good —good use of the old building’s characteristics. Steak was perfectly cooked —and good check from chef on exit on what we thought

    Lunch with close friends was a pleasure at Counting House. The fish of the day was delicious and perfectly seasoned. Pudding was super yummy- could have easily shared between 2 as the serve was very generous.

    This is our second visit. Initially the menu might seem lacking in choice but there is scope for either tapas style servings or standard mains. However, the Specials Board adequately makes up for what might appear to be less choice. On the drinks front there is plenty of styles and varieties to chose from. Finally, service is friendly and ‘spot on’. Will definitely revisit!

    Great spot on the Esplanade in Mornington! Catered for a large group of people with no dramas and extensive menu variety. Good value for money as well.

    Great night out, happy hour is a nice start, bar area very good, beautiful fire, nice vibe. Dinner was awesome, dining room very nice, it was a busy night. Our young waiter did not get flustered with the dietary requirements, and the changes we asked for were managed well. Wine choices were a bit limited, but adequate. Generous serves and great service. We will go again!
