The food was lovely, however they gave us the wrong bottle of wine and we're not sure if we were overcharged for what we did get, and I also asked them on the phone to surprise my boyfriend with a scoop of gelato and a candle for his birthday, and then they came and asked what flavour he wanted which ruined the intended surprise.

Had the lunch special, a main course and a glass of wine. Food lovely but the chicken dish could have done with a small salad or a few vegies.

Not bad, but not as enjoyable as eating in the adjacent bar at our last visit. The pasta dishes were a little more inventive than average but the execution was not as finessed as the menu suggested. Very convenient if visiting the Arts Centre but there are lots of other options nearby to try on subsequent visits.

A great pre-theatre venue. Excellent food with a reasonable choice. Very friendly staff who were very helpful and made sure we were out in time to get to the theatre without us feeling we were rushed. Thank you.

Most of the food was under seasoned and didn't feel worth the price

I went to the pre show early dinner with set menu. The menu was restrictive and unenspired, portions were small and flavours were limited. Service was average at best
