“Great Experience”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We went out for a few drinks and grabbed some dinner as well. The staff were on the ball with and delivered great service, the food was quite nice, I would definitely recommend most of the entrées and the Moroccan crusted Salmon fillet. This place is suited to friends and couples as it is a boutique wine bar, with a boutique beers as Well! I will be visiting again.

Only had a tapas, but it was so tasty and the wine was good. According to my husband, the organic beer he had helped his bad thoat. (Also was very enjoyable). First night of holiday only, so hope to go back.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

I met a friend there to use a voucher he had received as a gift. Staff seemed a bit reluctant to honour the voucher and we ended up paying for as much as we could be charged for. 'It's really for an evening meal,' was the first off-putting statement, even though this was not on the voucher.
If places like this expect first-time visitors to return, some gracious customer service wouldn't go amiss. Needless to say, we have not returned, even though the food was acceptable and my friend lives in the area

“Very Im-Presse-d”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

Like some other reviewers it was a Cudo voucher that first attracted our interest in the Presse Café Wine Bar and what a good investment it turned out to be. The staff were friendly, the prices very reasonable and the food excellent. We started with the chorizo & olive bruschetta topped with crumbed goats cheese which was simply sensational followed by the eye fillet which was cooked to perfection. The servings were very generous - neither of us could have fitted in a dessert. The only negative was that it was very noisy but this was due to the fact that we were eating early and the café was still full with the afternoon wine bar crowd who all seemed to be enjoying themselves. We will definitely be going back.

“Don't judge a book by its cover”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Using a Cudo voucher for this Wine bar, we were more than happy with the meal and service. While the décor was typical of a period wine bar the meal was excellent and you could not complain about the friendly service. we chose the croquetts as an entrée and Atlantic Salmon and Barramundi for mains with a side of thick cut chips and finished with cheese platter (larger than normal serve)and coffee.
it was a great meal and the staff were excellent, well done Presse Café.
