    It needs improvement in taste. Taste is not worth the price.

    I was very disappointed that there were basically no GF options except a salad and very limited vegetarian options. Your menu suggests that you can adapt for these needs, but when I arrived (with a large group) we were told that you could not meet these dietary requirements.

    Thought this was in Customs House. It is part of Marriot hotel. There is a room inside for quiet conversations. You need to order from the bar. There was a bit too much cheese and olives in my salad but the taste was good. Portion was great. My order was speeded up so that I could go for a show on time. Will visit again.

    Great place for a group lunch or quick drink. The bar and restaurant staff are excellent. Food is okay, a bit on the expensive side for what you get.

    Simple fare for lunch which is not hard to present well. At $32 for a counter lunch consisting of overcook (burnt edge chicken) and a few chips there are better places to be.

    Easily booked a table for 11, we set up inside in a quiet corner, perfect as we had 4 kids with us. Great quality, tasty food and good wine. We had 2 pizzas, the smoked fish salad, tomahawk lamb, roast chicken and the sablefish to share.

    For a quick lunch this place is great. Service is fast. The specials add value. The online booking serviceworks. Heaters in winter make it cosy outside. Can't fault it.

    Extremely loud. The hard surfaces ensured that the sound bounced all over making it unpleasant and most difficult to have a conversation. Also the menu was quite small. Not even a simple steak

    It was a busy evening. We ordered our own food and drinks at the bar. Food was good quality but the portions were smaller than other pubs and bars. Toilet was very clean.

    Sterile modern addition on the left of main area felt like we were sitting in the garage. No ambience and a sports tv doesn’t help. Really depressing. Staff were helpful and friendly and the beer selection was extremely good.

    I am not sure what happened there, whether it was short staffed and untrained staff but it was really bad unfortunately. The bar service was terrible and the food was not good. In saying that, I felt sorry for the staff because they were trying they just didn’t seem to know what they were doing and there was no one in charge to guide them. Hopefully they get it sorted out soon.

    Food well presnted and flavoursome. Outdoor seating on a slope not very comfortable/practical especially on high stools. Music too loud leading all patrons to raise voices in order to socialise...adding to the ambient noise.

    Good food and options for a cost-effective dinner out not far from Circular Quay. Staff were excellent. Best garlic bread I've had for quite some time, The calamari was delicious, as was the swordfish with tomatos and olives.

    No issue despite last minute booking. Food was of great portions and delicious. They cooked and served promptly. Staff was polite and helpful, excellent service. Love the covered outdoor seating which is a plus in view of coronavirus.
