With overseas friends, found this place and was not disappointed. Wine menu was good, the size and quality of steak was excellent, everyone commented on just how good there steak was. Friendly happy service and would lock this in for next time

We loved our first meal so much, we returned the next evening. The smokey chicken wings and the beef rib are the standouts. Just delicious! We had croquettes and wings for entree and the shared land platter as a main. Its quite alot of food...but so delicious we went back the next night for more wings and a whiskey tasting.More

Went to Hunter and Barrel for a work dinner recently. The waiter had good knowledge of gluten free and was aware of cross-contamination issues. He brought me a large spreadsheet showing all the ingredients and allergens in all dishes so I could make an informed...choice. His wine recommendation was good; the grilled eggplant side was delicious; shame my expensive steak was overcooked. But otherwise a tasty and gf meal.More

Starters of octopus and chicken wings were excellent like straight off a grill. Thought about ordering more but... we saw our mains sitting on the counter for well over five minutes while our server did other not waiting duties which ramped up my impatience. As...a result of the wait, thick cut chips were cooler and soggier. Also only a scant serving received so not optimum. The burger itself was ok, the bun tasted rustic in that it was cold and leaning on the stale side. The wagyu grill was perfectly cooked.More

Amazing atmosphere close to darling harbour. The wagyu steak was perfect grilled and also the baramundi fish was delicious. The whiskey flight as a end if the dinner was an interesting idea.

We ordered mussels and octopus for appetisers. Both are, hands down, winners. The mussels were plump and cooked just right as was the octopus. I’d have loved seconds of each but I didn’t want to be greedy! We shared an order of pork belly, as...main, which was okay but paled in comparison to our appetisers. We rate the service good because they accommodated our request to hold the coriander that was supposed to accompany the pork dish.More

Dined here as a group of 4 on a Wednesday evening. The staff and service were amazing. This was my partner’s parents’ last night on holiday in Sydney before heading home and it was such a good one. 3 of our party enjoyed the land...feast, describing it as beautifully cooked and outrageously flavourful. As a non-meat eater myself, I thought I would struggle but there was a wide selection of things to chose from in the mains, a couple in the starters and lots in the sides. I opted for 4 sides creating a little tapas style dining for myself, but the portions were very substantial and two would have easily sufficed. I had the harissa cauliflower, roasted eggplant, fried Brussels and polenta chips - absolutely devine!! They were very accomodating to remove the animal items that were listed with these (for example the yoghurt on the cauliflower and the parmesan that came on the polenta chips). They were super friendly and seemed very open to requests. Would certainly recommend to anyone.More

We went to this restaurant after a day at the Maritime Museum. It is located across the Harbour from the museum. We have made reservations here on trip advisor and that gave us dinner at 50% off. Great view of the Harbour. There are outdoor...and indoor tables. We chose to sit inside because of the heat. We both had the ordered the fillet. Our starter was a melted cheese dip. Great. The fillets were cooked to order and were outstanding. I had chips with mine and my wife a salad. We shared an order of Brussels sprouts. Great meal. We finished with the brownie dessert with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, and caramel corn. Outstanding. Great service and with the savings, a great value.More

A bit overrated. Dry burger. Charred skewer. Well presented but didn't taste anywhere near as good. Then to top it off the staff dishonored a coupon which was the only reason we went there. They must not mind 1 star reviews.

No it’s set in cockle bay which is close to the harbour. They do cockle bay fireworks for NYE. I don’t know if restaurant is booked out you will need to liaise with the restaurant. I would expect it to be very expensive for... More
