Went to eightysix for my partner's birthday dinner (just the two of us). We opted for the $86 'all-you-can-eat' option so we could try a variety of dishes. This option allows anything on the dinner or dessert menu (except the lamb shoulder) and does not...More

Eightysix has long been one of our favourite restaurants, so naturally we decided to ring in the New Year there. We knew they changed up the menu frequently and checked it before we went. Disappointingly, they had removed a number of our favourites. We accept...More

Visited 86 again recently and am a little bit concerned that some things are slipping. The food was excellent; novel and tasty. However, the portion sizes have shrunk and it takes a lot of shared plates to satisfy one’s hunger! The staff are attentive and...More
