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.

And not a jam jar drinking vessel in sight! Baked eggs; Breaky Bowl and Our Place breakfast are all winners. Smoothies and Frappes are original and tasty but glasses too small for their $7 price tag. Coffee is good too and service is friendly and brisk. Far better than a couple of its trendier near neighbours and the Parkside location... More

As you can see from their photo, the hanging steak is spectacular and very tasty! Neat place with it rustic interior and old harvest type tables. The food is of high caliber, albeit fairly rustic itself. Do be warned that this is not an inexpensive place.

We've been enjoying coming here for the last couple of years, food is always good and usually great service. Unfortunately the last twice we have come for dinner, the food has taken far too long to arrive. At our most recent meal, the entrees arrived promptly but the mains took over an hour and ten minutes to be delivered. They... More

Dined here with family (10 persons) on a wed night. Staff were great and catered well for all our diverse needs. BYO wine kept costs down. Food was very good but a couple of meals were a little cold. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

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.
