    A delicious menu, attentive service and delightful atmosphere. Serves were well proportioned without being excessive. The food was both tasty and satisfying.

    We had the sharing platter for entree, which was very good. Mains were fresh and tasty. Service was very efficient and fast. The restaurant is very roomy and parking out the back very handy.

    The steak was well done while we ordered it medium rare, but the sauce is really nice. Risotto was very nice cooked. Staffs attitude is great!

    Superbly delicious food, nice and comfortable environment/atmosphere. We were especially impressed by the 60 degrees lamb rump and the chicken Parma. Also loved the crab spaghetti and arancini. A very delightful dinner and highly recommended.

    Food was quite acceptable, nice flavours in the steak, but the lamb was overdone for medium rare. Kids meal pizza great, but calamari tiny for a 5 year old. The most dissapointing part was that the waitress allowed me to mull over the wine list only to be told that they only had 3 selections available. Basically a house white, red and sparkling. Also did not have the beer my husband chose from that menu.

    While the food was in general acceptable, the service was not. We were served the main course before we had anywhere near finished the entree, so that by the time we ate the mains, they were luke-warm. We also had to remind the manager to serve a glass of wine we had ordered some time before; the restaurant was not full and the waiter who took our order was collecting plates instead.

    Serving size was quite decent in size but the food not so much. I had the spaghetti pescatore and there was no taste. The pasta just tasted like boiled spaghetti. My husband had the crab spaghetti and that was quite tasty. My younger son had the spaghetti carbonara and that tasted quite nice. My second son didn't like the taste of the lasagne and when it came out it wasn't that hot. My older son had the cannelloni spinach & ricotta and the pasta around it was quite dry.

    Food was acceptable. I was hoping for great coffee but came away disappointed for a place that calls itself "Short Black Café". Lamb rump was the outstanding dish for the night.

    We just had lunch here with thefork discount and had no issue at all. The pasta, pizza, gnocchi and burger are all good quality. Will come back for sure.

    Service was good and layout of the restaurant was nice. But the food didn’t seem quite there. The banana bread seemed more like banana cake slathered in Nutella. Berry compote was also missing. Partner ordered the big breakfast, poached egg was slightly over cooked. Ice chocolate was a bit too milky. Overall food presentation was not great. With a little bit of work on the food the restaurant could be great. It’s in a lovely location.

    Lovely place with calm atmosphere. We were surprised how big the lamb came out. Meals very good and my husband and I enjoyed it. We booked on the Fork, and with the discount so could tip more.

    Not too many people know that this place is open for dinner and serve quality meals! Fast service and tasty food. Prices are like at fine dining, but you won’t be disappointed.

Best dish: mini chorizo croquettes
