    Dinner was excellent. We shared the salumi platter, sardines and olives, all were very nice, the kingfish was perfectly cured , presented and the combination of flavour and texture was delightful, my pick of the dishes for sure. Only small dislike was the romesco on the squid being too rich for us, but that is personal taste, not a complaint against the menu. Wines were good too. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

    Being elderly people we found the share tables very unsettling and the menu very confusing especially being told the dishes were for sharing. The food was excellent what we had and the staff very good but it is not our type of restaurant I am afraid.

    The staff were great and well versed in what they do which makes it a great experience. Food was great but some dishes maybe a little pricey for the serving size. Overall I would recommend.

    We dined at Rare Hare for dinner one Saturday night and had mixed feelings about the experience. The food and wine were both delicious but the service was very average. I'm not sure whether this was because they were understaffed on the night however throughout the whole night we were continuously trying to get the attention of the waitstaff along with everyone sitting around us. Also another note was that as the acoustics in the room are terrible (hard surfaces everywhere) we had to shout across the share table to hear each other where everyone else was doing the same so it didn't make for great dinner atmosphere.

    Incredible food and loved the Willow Creek Brut and the Rare Hare take on an Aperol, very yummy. However I wasn’t overly fond of the seating arrangements, everyone on a few big tables!

    Rare Hare is fantastic, right from our initial warm welcome we loved the place! We were early for our lunch booking so did a leisurely wine tasting first. After being seated we discussed the menu with a couple of the floor staff who were super helpful and advised us away fro ordering too much food THANKYOU! The food and wine were delicious and my friend really enjoyed her birthday lunch. Highly recommend the beef tartare and the barramundi wings and for dessert both the lemon custard and choc chip cookie were amazing. We’ll definitely be back.
