Truly tasty steaks. Side veggies were just ok--- over cooked and nothing special. This is a cute location in the Rocks historic neighborhood. Service is friendly and helpful. Pub/historic ambiance. Fairly small restaurant with inside and outside seating (but too cold in July to sit...More

Went with some US friends and ordered the seared kangaroo for entree, and the shared pork belly for a main. The food was amazing and the staff very professional. Great little restaurant in the heart of the Rocks.

We dined on a cold winter's day, 4 adults and my 6 year old grandson. We were seated outside initially but asked to be moved inside because one member of our party finds it difficult to tolerate cold weather. Staff were happy to accommodate us...More

The hotel concierge recommended this as a casual place nearby for dinner but it was definitely not casual. Most people were dressed in suits or business casual. We were wearing jeans and felt quite out of place. It has an interesting decor with an open...More
