After a few hours shopping we came here for early lunch and sat in their covered terrace area facing the river. Good selection for lunch, I had the burger, but mum got a large decent looking vege salad too! Many different things to choose from And pretty decent drinks and wine list.

Over priced for the quality of meal received, we waited over 40 minutes for our mains and was disappointed because of the hype we had heard

We were staying close by at the Hilton, and this place looked tempting. Not disappointed. Friendly service staff with just the right level of chat. Offered a great special that night - the Tomahawk steak for 2 - which was huge, and more importantly absolutely delicious. Great spot on the river, sipping wine and watching people stroll by. Other tables... More

Had a nice dinner here with some business partners. The issue is that there are many restaurants in the Expo area to chose from, all very good I must say. Meat Market falls in the same category. I would really recommend the shared starter platter, it comes with a nice variety of all kinds of starters, all meat related except... More

We went specifically for the kangaroo dish. It was very good to try it. They have other selections too. The staff were very nice and friendly. We had a table on the terrace with river view which was great view during dinner. The food quality is very good.

Nice restaurant, speedy service and lovely location. I chose the chicken with gnocchi which was fresh however very bland. I'm sure other dishes are lovely but I was disappointed with this choice.

As you'd expect, the meat market does good steak and the fries are really good. We tasted a few dishes on the menu and this restaurant has more than one trick, its not just about the steak. Very professional and knowledgeable staff, great service, good wine list. Will definitely eat here again

We didn't end up eating here because we walked in and stood at the sign that said "wait here to be seated" it was 2:30 in the afternoon and we waited for at least 5 minutes. There was only 2 other people eating in the restaurant. The 3 guys in the kitchen only 4 or 5 meters away saw us... More
