This place really works. The food is good as well as the service. I only gave this a rating of 4/5 due to the occasional fly situation outside.

Popped in for lunch earlier in the week.... it was a beautiful day in the courtyard and the blackbean beetroot burgers with haloumi were to die for. The nachos looked good too ! In fact, it was difficult to make a choice as the menu covered all bases. Service was efficient and friendly, as always. This is the type of... More

The regular menu hasn't got an overwhelming amount of options - which I really appreciate - and everything is delicious. The pasta is famous is the Newcastle area. What really stands out is the specials board - get your waitstaff to explain the story... More

Food is always good but service was poor-menus dumped with no return for the order. Staff then spent time talking socially for long periods with passers by

We always have a meal at Goldberg's when visiting Newcastle. Service is always top notch. Coffee is good & meals are yum! Great little courtyard out the back. Located in the trendy Darby Street precinct so can always have a little shop afterwards.

We went in search of somewhere to have breakfast - got drawn in by the inviting main room & courtyard back! Service quick & efficient, meals tasted great and coffee was good too!

Have visited here multiple times over the past 6 months, the quality of food is always really good and the atmosphere is great, plus it's decently priced for the area. Great for a meal and chat with friends, a date or just for somewhere casual.

Got in before 10am on a busy Sunday, staff were friendly and accomodating. Service was prompt. Considering it was busy was surprised to get food so quickly. Eggs benedict were great, Sweet bruschetta was fantastic (strawberries, pomegranate sauce, mint and raisin toast), good range of foods available. Coffee was good and strong. Not bitter. Highly recommended.

Thank Phil_Montafia
