    My boss recommended this place so I was very excited to give it a try. They have great selection of wines and beers and they support Australian makers. Wish we had big appetite as there were excellent dishes on the blackboard meant for sharing. Definitely a great place to go to with friends. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Amazing food!

    Food was sensational and the service - think the atmosphere would be better on a weeknight as it was a little quiet (also school holidays so CBD not that busy.) Loved it.

    A really great meal; best oysters I have had for a while and the shared T-bone with Colcannon and broccolini was sensational!! And finished, as always, with rice pudding and honeycomb. Foodie heaven!

    Kitchen by Mike CBD

    Loved the starters but some of the mains had sold out which was disappointing. But overall good experience.
