A group of us visited for lunch recently. The service for drinks was attentive and friendly but not intrusive, which was a good start. It all started to go down hill from there. Wrong order for oysters, average risotto and over cooked pasta. Additional bread was a struggle (arrived after we had finished), as was the salad (no dressing) and... More

Estivo is a very nice establishment, pleasant surroundings and a comprehensive menu and wine list. We have been here a number of times in the past (one of our locals) and have always previously found it to be very good. We came on this occasion for a dual-birthday dinner with friends - unfortunately they did not live up to previous... More

Waiter was friendly, but the food ordinary. The antipasto was pretty ordinary, but the big disappointment was the beef cheek. Supposed to be served on mash as usual, but they "ran out of mash" and served it on chats. Totally the wrong combo and taste and just a lazy uncaring attitude from the kitchen.

Dinner for 2 Saturday night, the food was excellent , but the service although friendly was not professional. The ambience was not improved by a crappy sound system with poor background music

Just found this place. What a bargain We had the pork belly with a side of roast beetroot which was delicious. The baramundi beautifully prepared and presented both with a glass of wine. The creme brulee was great and all reasonably priced. Looking forward to going back.

For once I write a disappointing review based on the food rather than the service.This is a well presented restaurant that was comfortably warm on a cold wet night.Service was quite elegant in fact but the food somewhat disappointing.My Oysters Kilpatrick had too much sauce drowning out the bacon.My wife's scallops were chewy and her double cooked pork also somewhat...

First time come to this restaurant for dinner. The best carpaccio ever had. The slices of beef were not too thin and all covered with cheese powder. It's yummy.

I visited this place with my friends over the weekend and really liked the ambience and service. Food was great specially soft shell crabs. Also liked their byo deal so visit again on a weekday next time to take that opportunity.

I visited Estivo for the third time last night and had an equally wonderful meal. Since I was last there they have bought the most comfortable chairs I have ever sat on in a restaurant. As always the services was relaxed and friendly. I had a delicious prawn risotto and a sublime creme brûlée.

Have considered whether I post this review as I don't like posting negative reviews. Nor do I actually have many negative dining experiences. However some of the positive reviews led me to make the booking so in the interests of balance, here goes.Well maybe we were just unlucky but we were a party of 4 and had a shambolic dinner... More
