Lovely balmy evening, sitting on a table outside, with dappled light and a light breeze. I love where we live. Staff quickly take our order, giving kids colouring in to do and bringing the kids spaghetti Napoletana out first. They love it. They're busy. Saganaki with chilli jam is delish, although not a generous serve. My croquettes were more moosh... More

We were taken by friends who regularly wander in for a nice meal. Good food, well cooked and nicely presented. Good selection and an atmosphere that is open and friendly. The restaurant is as much on the pavement as it is inside, but that is part of the beauty of Balmain life.

Even though we were 20 minutes early for our booking, they were happy to seat us at a lovely table outside under the tree. Despite it being a busy Sunday morning, they did not rush us to order.

I came here for brunch with friends who had a young daughter and the staff were very accommodating despite being quiet busy. They made us feel as if we were at home, with toys for the children and just their overall friendliness. The food was great, I had the breakfast bowl, which was lovely. Would definitely recommend.

The food, service, ambience is always friendly, high quality and consistent. The wait staff know the menu and confidently make recommendations and Marco the boss man is always energetic, engaging and runs an efficient team! Always a memorable experience especially sitting outside opposite Gladstone Park with the bats jostling amongst the branches in summer.

I will say that my sister lives this restaurant so I am not sure if I just visited on a bad day but I found the food quite underwhelming.

We had breakfast here 2 days running. The food was great and the service was friendly. The location was very handy to Darling st shops.

Staying in Balmain

Neighbourhood Profile
Take the ferry to the inner west suburb of Balmain and be enchanted with this picturesque and eclectic waterside area. A stroll down Darling Street will take you on a tour of coffee shops, boutique delicatessens and shops offering wholefood products and organic cuisines. Yoga studios abound, and live music emanates from the hotels at night. As the place where the Australian Labor Party formed in 1891, Balmain has commonly been known for its “working class culture”. It has evolved into a health-conscious heaven with a laid back attitude, offering one of the most vibrant food and bar scenes in Sydney.
