    We had a very nice dinner at the Whistling Sparrrow. The grazing plate for 2 was excellent and the dessert of Chocolate Bomb was truely amazing. We would certainly recommend to friends and family. The staff are very welcoming and give good customer service.

    Friendly service and decent prices and atmosphere. Food was well presented and of acceptable quality. For us it was a quick dinner which we enjoyed, although my wife would have preferred a less spicy sauce.

    Food: excellent! Chicken buffalo wings with tamarin sauce and deep fried mushrooms for the entree. Fillet steak and lamb shank for the main. Honestly they are all perfectly prepared and cooked freshly. And the service is very friendly, the owner (?) has a lot of recommendations. Overall we are very happy and would return to this place for any occasion, also would highly recommend for a good quality food.

    After being told the prosciutto wrapped ribeye was not included in the deal upon arrival, I ordered the lamb shoulder which was disappointing. Wife enjoyed the salmon

    The service was slow. Waited for about 1 hour before our mains came out. But the waitress was polite and friendly.

    Great service, staff was so friendly but food was unfortunately mediocre. I ordered Lamb shanks and it was lukewarm inside. Fisherman basket was bit too oily and salty. Serving sizes were small for the price

    Friendly & courteous staff. Generous food portions. Food itself was quite delicious but lacked seasoning, it was bland. I didn’t mind but my hubby had to keep adding salt & pepper. Cocktails were quite expensive & tasted more like mocktails. It is essential to order beverages to avail 50% through Fork booking. So, best stick to cheaper drinks. A pleasant neighbourhood gem, warm friendly & clean.

    The service was friendly and the food was good. However, the price was a bit high. To be honest, I wouldn’t go again without The Fork 50% discount.

    I had been to The Whistling Sparrow before; and had one of the best burgers and great chips (I am fussy about chips: I am fussy about food). I had tried the popular restaurant next door on two occasions, but on both occasions, my meat tasted like leather; and the service was very poor. Yesterday, Valentine's Day, my wife and I took advantage of The Fork promotion and revisited The Whistling Sparrow: the food is very good, the service is excellent and Ithe Manager is very personable. Value for money: hard to beat. I plan to make The Whistling Sparrow my regular "go-to" for a night out: I am a local.

    Staff were very welcoming, dinner a little slow however this was due to a booking for six that turned into fourteen which they managed quite well. Presentation of food excellent.

    The staff were welcoming and with The Fork 50% off deal it was okay value, however if I’d paid full rate, I certainly wouldn’t have been happy. The share platter we ordered for entree was lacklustre. The two mains that we ordered (Beef Wellington and Seafood Pie) were not available. The beef because the ingredients were too expensive for the half price deal (although this was not mentioned on the deal) and the pie because they no longer do the pie! So, selected the salmon and lamb flat-bread. The salmon was well cooked and delicious, but the vegetable bed it came on were obviously pre cooked because they were cold. The flat-bread was okay but nothing exciting. The wine was surprisingly nice and incredibly reasonably priced - like local club price, which is not what you expect in a restaurant.

    Most dishes that we ordered were delicious however there’s still plenty of room for improvement. Customer Service was immaculate. I was so looking forward to the wonton prawn stack but unfortunately It was a little disappointed. Very good value for money with the 50 percent off offer. I was happy to adhere to the terms and conditions of the offer which I found very fair. Thanks team at whistling sparrow.

    My partner and I enjoyed our dinner. We were welcomed on arrival, the waitress was attentive and the food fresh & tasty. I ordered prawn risotto and my partner ordered the chicken and prawn curry.

    Great food and fantastic service. Was looked after so well, even if i was getting 50% off i didn’t get any less attention and servings were great. Will definitely come back. Would love more options on the menu though so there is more to try.
