    Welcoming & friendly service, delicious food! One of the best steak I have had at a very reasonable price! My husband and I totally enjoy the whole experience!

    Sketches lived up to our expectations again. Our food was delicious. The steak melted in my mouth. It is a cosy restaurant with great ambience. We will return.

    We are regular guests and enjoy the Sketches experience at every visit. Meals are consistently generous, fresh and tasty no matter what we choose. Wait staff on this most recent occasion left a bit to be desired - put it down to inexperience. Not what we would normally get - much better usually.

    Second time I have been some time apart and definitely a hidden gem. Food was excellent and salads exceptional and menu nicely varied. Will go again soon

    Excellent food quality - both mains and desserts were cooked to perfection. Crispy pork belly and salmon was crisp and tender. Steak was tender and tasty. Service was good too. Will come back in the future.

    Small number of tables inside but still slow service. Food was average over all, but the calamari was good. Wasn’t horrible but I won’t be back. Oh and don’t order a vodka, lemon lime and bitters. You’ll be charged $8 for vodka then $5 for the lemon lime and bitters...

    Terrific restaurant with a small but interesting menu with something for everyone. The lemon merengue pie slices are huge so it is a good idea to share this one. We had the paella which was fabulous.

    I was pleasantly surprised at this restaurant. The food was lovely and I would certainly recommend this cafe/restaurant to any one. Service initially was excellent but at the end of the meal I was unable to gain the attention of the waiter so as to order a cup of tea. it is a lively cafe/restaurant with plenty of buzz.

About the restaurant

Chat me up What’s the use of eating out if you’ve got nothing to say? Sketches Café Bar will give you plenty to talk about, from the food and drink to the meaning of life and beyond. Its new and spacious restaurant accommodates both romantic intimacy and fun al fresco. The indoor area is neat, minimal and cafe-ish, and the outdoor area is cute and leafy; charming in the noontime sun. Sketches menu offers you a happy blend of modern Australian favourites and exotic innovations. There’s always something on the menu to suit your mood, whether it be the comfort of the old of the excitement of the new. Have some beef tataki to start (lightly seared raw meat) and move on to a crispy barramundi fillet. We love sharing French fries with aoli over a beer in the garden and ending on some lemon meringue pie. The food arrives in a charming casual presentation in the hands of chummy, fun-loving staff. It all goes towards making this a neighbourhood darling – the friendly vibes and food for thought. Best dish: Seafood and chicken paella
