We popped in before WOW for some predictably awesome food and their great wine list.

The only criticism would be the ndujo croquettes which were distinctly average next to the rest of the stunning dishes.

Hard to find any fault with Egmont Street. Very friendly, cheerful and helpful staff matched by equally fab food. As we were leaving, we were asked what dish we liked best. We couldn’t give an answer - everything we ordered was delicious! Best to share plates - both small and big ones.

Service was great,food delicious,beer delicious,rose yum.
Just had a good time.The tables are very close together,but if you have been in Paris to dine,you are used to it and won't bother you,otherwise you have to listen to other peoples conversation.

If you need a good helping of the kind of protein that swims or flies or runs around, Egmont St is probably not your best choice. Not that you’ll be short of protein, but it might be in one of their house-made cheeses. We started with their Tallegio profiteroles in a honey sauce. Salt-sweet. For our main we chose one main dish -the ricotta dumplings- and two side (vegetable) dishes. The potato tart was delicious. Actually, it was all delicious, and the flavours worked very well together. There is a good selection of large and small dishes. $12 and $30-ish respectively. There was one beef dish which sounded really interesting with a burnt butter sauce. Together with two glasses of wine, the total was $93.
Service was pleasant and professional. Bookings advised, and you can choose to sit on a stool right above the plating area and observe the chefs as they work.
I’d go back in a flash.

I went to try this restaurant as it is having good review. Location is nice as it was shielded from the usual noise near the busy streets. I have tried the pork loin and a glass of beer. Pork loin tasted very good except that some portions I believed need some more cooking because I want it well cooked. My personal preference. Other than that, it was tasty. It was so soft that it nearly melts in your mouth. Nice pairing with apple slices. And of course a glass of beer. Staff were friendly although the store manager could be a little more accommodating and welcoming.
