    Pros: Nice place, my son loved the restaurant and his steak (it was his 21st, so that's the important thing) Cons: only one waiter and i found him rude and annoying when asking about food options. He also convinced my 18yr old to have a vodka with his coke when he only ordered a coke. Water was $9 each bottle. Not much to choose from the menu. No gf pasta avail,

    Loved it! What a hidden gem. The food was delicious and service impeccable. It was like a fine dining experience for a very good price. The express lunch is very good value.

    The food was great but the waiter was terrible. A while after ordering , he told us they didn't have broccolini and then later told my friend the kitchen had put breadcrumbs on the barrumundi despite us telling the waiter she was gluten intolerant. Instead of saying the kitchen will remake it up front, he asked if she would still have it . He said he'd make up for it with dessert. Then the wine we chose wasn't available. After the mains we asked which desserts he recommended factoring in the gluten intolerance and he said creme brulee or wine jelly. We said yes to creme brulee only to wait 15 minutes for him to come back and ask if we'd decided on dessert. At that point we just asked for the bill.

    Everything was stellar, the only thing I think could've been improved was the water. I'm not a fussy person but I heard a lot from others present that it was lukewarm and unfiltered. To me it was just water ????. Besides that I loved it completely

    We loved the food, quiet atmosphere and choice of music in the background - combination of a great play list and live pianist! We appreciated the patience of the waiter who cleaned up after we accidentally broke a wine glass too!

    The food itself was good, the service was terrible. It took time to be seated (the place was empty) took time for our orders to be taken. Drinks took ages to come. Wrong meals came out, we were not offered additional drinks or a dessert menu.

    Wonderful place to eat. This is my fifth time eating there. Service was excellent - waiter was very attentive. Had the Barramundi. One word - yum! And the strawberry tart for desert was just as good! My dining companions were also impressed! Can highly recommend The Den!

    Wonderful atmosphere, intimate yet relaxed, with a balanced and colourful menu. I had both lunch and dinner here on different days and attention to detail was foremost. Service was excellent too.

    The burger buns were over toasted (or stale) and service was slow. The waitress who greeted us on arrival was not at all friendly and we were disappointed by the lack of service to our table. We were only offered drinks once the entire time we were there.

    Good food. Never really content when you order a main (not inexpensive) and then have to order side dishes with it (about $14 for a side of fries). Not a fan of paying for spirits (not inexpensive) and then getting charged for a "mixer" (around $2.50)

    A beautiful, classy restaurant with good food and great cocktails, and cakes. Service was brilliant! Food used to be tastier, menu was better. Still good though.
