A comfortable and classy place with friendly staff and good meals, although small and not cheap. Nice spot for summer sun. If you are here for a while, a Craft Card gets you a half price meal on Tuesdays and cheaper drinks. After dark it has a more relaxed feel than the surrounding night clubs.

I've been here twice recently, and both times was satisfied. The first time was with a group of friends for dinner, and the place was PACKED! Even so, service was prompt and friendly, our food and drinks came out quickly, and our meals were delicious.

More recently, I went to Craft for a weekday lunch. We hadn't intended to go there, but after looking at the menus of the places around the Octagon, the Craft had far and away the more interesting one. Ironically during this very quiet period was when the service was a little poorer than when we visited during a very busy shift. The waitstaff were friendly and eager, but possibly new so seemed somewhat frazzled. Having said that, the meal was again really good and something I'd order again.

Overall the place has a nice ambiance, good service if a little spotty at times, and the meals are interesting and well-prepared. Some meals are on the pricier side but others are more modest and worth the money; price-wise I'd say they are consistent with other Octagon restaurant/bars. They also have a good variety of drinks, which is probably what they're best known for. I would definitely go back again and would recommend it to others.

Lived and worked here for 3 months. Adored craft bar, with its lively student staff, selection of Monteith's beer, great menu options including a kilo steak and bluff oysters! At night the music is loud and there's a good club next door. The octagon is a great place to be!
