    We had dinner here based on word of mouth recommendations. Happily, it was fantastic. The food was superb, great service and very good value for money. THe barramundi was the best I have EVER had. It was fresh, perfectly cooked and juicy....Yum! My only VERY MINOR criticism is that a couple of the dishes were a little lacking in seasoning but I could't give a 9.5 and a 9 would not have been fair. We will definitely be back.

    In any good restaurant the bread should be fresh and of good quality but if this "French" restaurant wants to charge for bread then it needs to be extra good. The bread in this restaurant was neither good, nor fresh. The entree of cured salmon was too small for the price and tasteless. The desert soufflee also disappointing. The gnocchi however was delicious as well as the amuse bouche cauliflower veloute. We have eaten here on four previous occasions and been very happy however this time was below standard.

    Had a really enjoyable experience here, the food was sublime and the staff attentive. If I was being picky, they could do with one or two more options.

    Food excellent and classy but restaurant was let down by the awful smell upon entering. Hopefully this is something they could rectify. Otherwise food, wine and service top class and special 3 course set price menu makes it affordable for all.

    A beautiful furnished and decorated restaurant with soft mood music. A warm welcome from a well presented waiter. A well set table with linen tablecloth and napkins. Our party consisted of two couples and each of us had what we considered the most delicious entrees and mains that we have had in years. Each dish was superbly presented and could not be faulted. The only complaint we had was the foul odour we encountered on arrival. The waiters were oblivious to the smell . I soon discovered the source... the diners toilets which lacked any form of fragrances for either the toilet bowl or the room itself. I pointed this out to the waiter and about 20 minutes later it appeared they rectified it with disinfectant. Unfortunately the smell of the disinfectant overwhelmed our section of the restaurant. Hopefully the restaurant will rectify the lack of fragrances in the diners toilet before our next visit. 4.5 out of 5.

    Loved this restaurant. We went there for a belated anniversary dinner. The service was warm, friendly and welcoming. The food was very good, the pavlova was the best I’ve had.

    Our little group meets for birthdays and Christmas and for the past 3 years we have chosen Little Truffle due to the food, the service and the fact there is no loud music assaulting our ears! - we can hear each other speak! Our waiter (and unfortunately I do not know his name) greets us like old friends and goes out of his way to be accommodating.
