    We had a great evening at Para eating the feed me menu. We enjoyed every course and when the chicken was dry and cold - they were pretty busy - it was no problem to replace and it was well worth the wait when it returned. We will definitely return

    We had the tasting menu. Each course was very we’ll presented and tasty. Standout for me was the zucchini flowers, heirloom tomato salad. Everything was great though.

    Great food, great variety, great presentation. Excellent service. The way they do things is a little different and may not suit everyone, but it was right up our street. The space itself is a little cavernous, but that's the only negative for me. Would gladly dine there again.

    Every aspect of our lunch was perfect - the table arrangement, welcome, service and meal were wonderful. Lauren was an exceptional host who helped make our experience comfortable - friendly and professional - all food yum, but the foccacia was awesome.

    Had the shared chefs choice offer. The flavours were interesting and delightful. (Just found it difficult to cut food on the rounded saucer plate, as it topples if not cutting directly in the centre) Great friendly and knowledgeable waitress. Food pricing was reasonable. Definitely recommend !

    The food was to die for and the service was magnificent and personal. Not to mention the restaurant itself was stunning. Nothing to fault! Will be returning.

    I went with my family for a celebration and Para is perfect for a special occasion. Lovely fit out, great service, great food and wine. We had the chef’s selection which was reasonably priced and a lot of food! I also love that the ingredients are locally sourced.

    Thoughtful and helpful staff. Sophisticated decor. Food was flavoursome and well-presented. Prices were very reasonable. Wine list was interesting and I learnt a thing or two. Highly recommended.
