    A delightful Sunday afternoon experience. Staff engaging, knowledgable, and naturally friendly. The menu enticing enough for you to want to order all. A great meal, wine, beer, wrapped up in a relaxing atmosphere.

    Enjoyed a lovely dinner at Parlour, bit of a different feel tham last time I visited, though just for cocktails.. we were away from the crowds a little, which was nice to catch up but felt a little left by staff at times.. A good menu, with delicious choices and a great cocktail and wine list..

    Charming uncrowded atmosphere full of character, excellent food and service, despite being a staff member down on the day. Highly recommended.

    Delicious food that looked great and was presented in a great ambience (decor, music). Aubergine with crunchy chickpea and beetroot, pasta dishes and cod all had the thumbs up

    Parlour dining is an experience for the senses and the palette. Ambience and exceptional food and wine combined.

    The food was excellent! We enjoyed some tapas for entrees and then mains. Best meal we’ve had in ages. Drinks were lovely too. A great spot for dinner and drinks before a movie.

    Great spot for a quick lunch on a work day. Quality food and good value for money. For two, we shared two mains and one dessert. Food came out relatively quickly too.

    Nice ambience and friendly staff. An interesting and delicious combination of tapas options that did us nicely. Dinner for two and a bottle of wine was $120, so average value. Overall, recommended.

    Totally unexpected as it is a little nook among other food establishments and it has been revamped. Loved it! The staff were awesome and the food was marvellous. The only niggle I had was where we were seated felt a little intrusive or obstructive. I thought we would be in the way, but the staff negotiated around us very well so it didn’t dampen the mood at all. Overall, a lovely experience. Definitely recommend it and the prices were reasonable for the quality of food. Very impressed.

    The Parlour Room had a lunchtime special which included wine and a main meal. The staff were friendly, courteous and professional. We didn't have to wait long to be served and the chairs were comfortable to sit in and enjoy the experience. I would definitely recommend the Parlour Room to future patrons.

    The lunch menu offered an excellent choice of very tasty and appetisingly plated dishes with a glass of wine for $20. As always, the service was very friendly and efficient, ensuring our return in future to try more of the Parlour’s dishes.

    The service was rather slow, however the food was quite nice. The atmosphere was good though, I really liked the couches. I would consider coming back, perhaps at a different time of the day.

    Main course took 1 hour to arrive. Restaurant ran out of snapper, spatchcock was more like chicken. The cauliflowers on the spatchcock were burnt and were consistently cold among all the guests. When my main arrived, I told the waitress what dessert I wanted and to be ordered straight away just in case it took another hour, waitress said it won’t be that long. But waitress only put in my dessert order once we finished main course and so had to wait another 30 minutes for dessert. At the end, we were billed for one extra main course. Two visits in a row, both were disappointing to be honest.

    Liked the way the restaurant space is divided with curtains etc. however the noise level is not able to be moderated especially when there is a large group in one section, as was the case last night. The group dominated and appeared to be oblivious to other dining in the shared space. A pity. Food and service remained very goo to excellent.

    My ex wife and I were commemorating what would have been our 50th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have made a better choice of venue. Food, service and ambiance all excellent. Frank Latham, ACT

    Waitress never paid attention to the tables. Chocolate fondant was over cooked that there’s no chocolate laza oozing out when cut.
