Let's get all the negative stuff out of the way! You pay for the bread here, a bowl of chips (for 2) was $15 and corkage is $17 wine only. We went instead for their wine list and ordered a 2011 Wynns Black label for $52. We were presented with a 2014 I asked for what was on the wine... More

We go here about thrice/year. $80-90/head with BYO no desert. Two person team. Quiet ambiance. Excellent steaks and Australian prawns from the grill which is fastidiously attended to by the Chef. Never had a bad meal. Sorry to let the secret out but they deserve it.

This restaurant is not for everyone. The menu is limited, there is no ambiance and the prices are high. However they have certainly perfected what they make! Best steak I've ever had! Dinner for 2 set us back $108. We shared tiger prawns for entree. These were cooked to perfection. Delicious. Both had steak for main (scotch fillet?). Steak comes... More

Came here for an evening of steak, wine and catchup with three mates, and not disappointed on any front. The steaks were excellent, in fact it's hard to remember a better porterhouse. Wine menu was a bit limited, but not bad. Ambience sucks a bit, but we went there for other reasons and we're not at all disappointed. We'll be... More

My partner took the kids and I to dinner here. It was lovely. The atmosphere was so cosy and was like having dinner at a friends place. Big enough for an atmosphere but small enough to still be intimate. Now I have to admit... I have never liked steak, but obviously that's because I'd never had one cooked properly! Dinner... More

We recently had dinner at Zagars. To me, when you have a meal at a restuarant you judge the results by the amount you pay and whether you believe you had achieved value for money and where the ambience is very limited, you judge the result more sharply on the quality of the food and the perceived value for money....

Ever since I've experienced zagar, I will never doubt that a good steak needs no sauces to go with it. I've since brought families, friends or visitors here and loved the establishment. Our most recent visit, a party of 7, all ate with gusto and agreed that this place by far has beaten most steak places. Don't expect sauces or... More

David, the chef/owner is very amiable and cooks a delicious steak. Our party of 4 ordered different cuts and each was served to the requested "done-ness". Dave came out to make small talk. Turns out he is very much a closet Physicist. Had very interesting conversations on energy and discussions ranged to Nikola Tesla and many other famous and accomplished... More
