    This could be a fabulous restaurant, as the food is lovely (if not a bit small in its portions). However, on both occasions I have been the service has been very slow, especially when ordering drinks. We waited at least 10 mins to get our first drink and my fizzy wine was flat when it finally arrived and it took almost as long to receive my replacement. If they can improve their service I think this place would be higher on my list of places to go back to. The staff were friendly but service slow.

    The meals were interesting and more than one option for the vegetarians in the group. I tried a watermelon cocktail, definitely recommend it. And the waiter offered a mocktail version for my kids which was equally enjoyed.

    Limited food options for dietary. Very small portions for share plates and quite expensive for the amount of food. Not great value for money.

    The food was great, exciting and something you do not find in most restaurants. Loved it! Plenty of options if you are vegetarian. We also had a coulpe of drinks with gin and they where briljant! The staff was very polite and warm towards us, Thank you for that. Greetings from Sweden!

    The food was okay, nothing bad, just nothing delicious. 5 course sampling menu chosen but too many of the same flavours uses in the 5 dishes made it all a bit the same. Many individual elements of each dish done well, but not what I would call well balances dishes. Presentation was also good. Staff were amazing! Best restaurant staff I have seen in years. Hats of to you guys. Really nice atmosphere and great music at a comfortable volume. Improve the food and I would come back in a heat beat. With the current menu, I wouldn't return for dinner, however a nice place for a few drinks in the bar downstairs.

    Our selections were very tasty but disappointingly small for the price charged

    The food was absolutely amazing and good portion sizes. Our waiter was really lovely and knowledgeable on the food and drinks served The only thing that could have made it better was more comfortable seats, we were sitting on the high chairs up stairs (your back start to get sore after a while) and more offering of next drinks, we had finished ours for a while before we were offered a next round and we really wanted try so many more.

    we were a party of 4 (5pm res) and each of our meals came 30-40 min apart, so we were there for 2.5hrs without even getting dessert and not eating together! Our fries never came either! Apparently this is just their format and made no accomodations to allergies! Food and cocktails was very tasty though at least!

    Excellent selection of gin and knowledgeable staff. Great service. Yummy food and the Lamb Cigars were one of the best food experiences I’ve had in a long time.

    We had our regular 'boys night' gathering of six sixty somethings at Dutch Courage. They could not have been more helpful in selecting our meze menu. Service on the night was outstanding. Thank you very much to the server and bar staff for putting up with us. It was a memorable night.

    A lovely dinning experience, beautiful food - very fancy without costing an arm and a leg, plus the service from Amelia, our waitress, was outstanding. Only criticism was it was maybe a touch too dark, and it was difficult to read the menu off the phones

    Loved this place! The cocktail masterclass was a hoot. The service from Cam and Amelia was fabulous. The food was delicious, great flavours, only slight negative was the portion sizes of one or two of the dishes but the flavour and cocktails more than made up for it

    I don’t usually write online reviews but I had to make an exception for this place. The staff were super friendly, super knowledgeable on gin and the food was superb. Recommend 110%. The only shame is I live interstate and won’t be able to come back anytime soon!

    Wednesday night quiet dinner for 2. Very tasty food, well presented. Would really rock on Friday/Saturday nights and that would be a great with all the different types of gin, Only tasted 4 this time though.

    We booked this restaurant thinking it was going to be a Gin bar and we nearly didn’t go in because it looks like any ordinary cafe. Soooo glad we decided to go in, the food was ridiculously good- lamb cigars and other things I can’t spell or pronounce just made our tastebuds sing. Have eaten out a few times in my life but this was palette perfection ❤️❤️ Loved it and can’t wait to go back. Not what I’d call an intimate drinking bar but the lads knew their Stuff and made great drinks.
