Went for dinner as Tapers. Very nice food. 4 of us had Cajun Calamari, magnificent. Also Smoky Pork Belly. Ok. Marinated Lamb Skewers. Tasty. Chicken tenderloins. A bit dry. Thought they would bring out individually at intervals. Instead they brought it all out together.

We didn't eat here so can't comment on the food. We went here because of the live entertainment. We had 3 cocktails (espresso martini was not that great) but others were good. The entertainer was a bit sombre and I get that he writes all his own music and doesn't know any covers (his words) but for a Saturday night... More

First time I went, the girl on the bar was SO nice! it was mid week and not many people out and she was working and keeping conversation with myself and partner pretty much the entire time.

Saturday night 18 February we were looking for somewhere relaxing with some nice music playing to have a nice drink and a bite to eat. We weren't disappointed Matt Stillert was playing. His style of music is definitely chilled. He has an amazing voice. We didn't want to leave. We moved from a table to the lounges to be more... More

Well.... Not all bad but will say the waiter was the only staff member.. The wine was great. The dishes were okay? Lacked a little flavour. Waiter was kind of floating around not really paying attention to anything or to a table's dishes that left 20 mins earlier. Our dishes sat empty at our table for 15 mins. We were... More

Went here for valentines dinner. Food was AMAZING and service was even better, very friendly, nice and funny people. Shout out to Marrisa, Aj and Jimmy, thank you for giving us such a great dinner and night. If you go here, try the calamari! Definitely will be back, and would recommend.

Maybe it just wasn't a good day; but the food tasted bland and stale, with plastic pieces in the tapas and mould on cheese that shouldn't be on those types of cheese. Unfortunately the cocktails didn't match up to expectations either. Hopefully things can improve because we love to support local.

I had a business lunch here and will definitely return. It was a great place to talk and eat. The food was great and the service attentive but not intrusive.
