We enjoyed a two course dinner here on Saturday night. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and every staff member provided excellent service. For mains we ordered the Confit Duck with Lentils, Pancetta and Poached Egg and the Braised Beef Cheeks with Carrot Puree, Artichoke, Piselli & Shiraz Sauce. Both were well seasoned & executed and we thoroughly enjoyed them!... More

They were all booked out for dinner but still managed to draw out a table for us hearing we drove from Sydney to get there for dinner. Beautifully made fresh pasta melts in your mouth. The waitress were very friendly and take their job as if it's their own business. Nice romantic ambient for couples and friends to enjoy.

We ended up at Onesta after a disastrous attempt at a meal at another restaurant and I'm so glad we did. Not only did they manage to fit 6 of us in with virtually no notice, a rarity on any other day, they made us feel so welcome that much of the disappointment from the previous place disappeared. The menu... More

Good food, good service, definitely worth another visit. It is a small restaurant but has a great atmosphere. They welcome small groups, work parties etc, which is the reason we were there. Very accomodating

Enjoyed a quiet evening at Onesta with my husband. The service was a little cool on first arrival, however warmed throughout the evening - very friendly overall. The food was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening - highly recommended.

Wait staff were friendly and the food was divine. My partner had the beef cheeks which he said melted in your mouth. I had a pancetta wrapped chicken dish with asparagus which was also delicious. We both had dessert. I had the Eaton Mess, which I enjoyed even though the merengue was a tad too sweet for my liking. My... More
