    The staff were friendly and attentive, the food was excellent. The pizza was great, seafood linguine was excellent and the swordfish was also excellent. Could not fault it.

    Good food and ambience. The waiters were helpful and suggested vegetarian options. Will definitely visit again. We ordered burrata / bread and polenta sticks ( a bit heavy) and a pizza - all the food was good

    Great for a catch up with a variety of dishes, this relaxed local ticks all the boxes, and its cool enough without being exclusive. Limited for drinks choices outside of wine, beer but welcoming

    Claudia was our superstar waitress, she was very attentive, funny and we took full advantage of her wine expertise. She truly made our night memorable! Thank you!

    Service was extremely slow and the wait staff seemed overwhelmed at the start of the evening. We were told on arrival that we needed to vacate the table by 730 so to have no service for so long was pretty unreasonable

    Service was disappointing. Little attention to detail even though it wasn’t very busy. Have been many times before although this visit was very underwhelming.

    Food is not bad but for the price paid, should have been a lot better. Forgettable meal

    Found our waitstaff to be abrupt, impersonal and rather unpleasant.

    went to the Dolphin for lunch. I've been a number of times previous to this and suggested it on this occasion. Food is always great!! But the service was really underwhelming this time. The staff need to smile a bit more and at least pretend that they enjoy their job...we really are not difficult to please.

    Really friendly. Food was great, wine was a reasonable price and service was cheerful and efficient. But it was, as is usual now, very noisy. So I don't call it fine dining because a lot of noise is not calming or pleasurable

    Limited Pinot Noir - on the wine list under $80 and then we chose something that is out of stock.

Open for lunch and dinner 7 days, The Dolphin is a great spot to catch up with friends. The Modern Italian/Australian menu offers a Salumi cabinet and authentic pizzas such as the marina with no cheese. While the wine and beer list, created by James Hird, is extensive.

Well, why are you still here? Get some friends together and head to The Dolphin now!
