Perfect place to head to when you're craving a dose of Australia. Friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere inside - plus a mean avocado on toast!

We had a very warm welcome on a cold, wet Friday evening. Th cocktails are great and there was a good choice of food. The service was friendly and efficient. I would certainly make a return visit.

Decent list of cocktails and a range of different brunch options. Did enjoy sitting at the bar watching the barman and other guests.

I remember when Dante was an old school Italian joint where you would get the most fabulous cappuccinos and desserts. It had opened in 1915!!! It’s now completely reinvented itself, focusing on cocktails and a scene that is definitely for the 25-35 crowd. Chat up...More

Had dinner here. It's a cute place. Food ok. There are so many other places in NYC that we love, so I wouldn't be inclined to return for dinner. It's in a great location and is probably better for drinks with friends.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
