    Food and service on point as expected. We took our daughter out for the Wednesday steak deal, she is very fussy with how her steak is cooked so we assured her she wouldn't be dissapointed. She ate hers before we did and then finished off mine. Will be back again.

    Back again for lunch this time. The lighter lunch meals were great - fresh and tasty. Great with a beer and cider. The restaurant was not so busy when we arrived (relatively early) and the service was very attentive. More people and a nice buzz by the time we left - quite full!

    Would thoroughly recommend, had a wonderful time and looking forward to next time. The only negative comment would be that it is quite expensive.

    As visitors to the area we saw the Restaurant as we were driving around and thought it looked cute. We checked it's rating and made a booking for dinner. Our meal was amazing! Two of the diners in our party said the beef medallions were 'probably the best steak I've ever eaten!' I had the pumpkin gnocci and it was absolutely delicious. The desserts were glorious. I haven't even started on the excellent customer service! It wasn't a cheap meal but was more than worth every cent! We'll definitely be back.

    It was my first time here. We were on a date night and had a great meal and cocktail. Everything was spot on! We had sticky lamb ribs, garlic bread, steak and a cocktail. We both could not be happier with our choices! Delish and would highly recommend!

    Living locally, there are a lot of good restaurants to choose from. We haven’t visited The Counting House for about two years but our visit last night was a breath of fresh air. The wine list, Linguini Marinara and my Pumpkin Gnocchi were excellent - city standard cuisine by the bay.

    First time experience was excellent. Food and service outstanding. Not a place you would go once a week due to price but you pay for the excellent quality.
