This was the third time we'd visited this restaurant. The owners are professional and friendly, down to earth people. The food,service and ambiance was outstanding. We each decided on the three courses and for only $55 who wouldn't? Started with Bruschetta we could smell the fresh warm bread and garlic before it even reached the table; the tomatoes, basil and...

Unfortunately due to the restricted size of the restaurant, it is not always possible to get a table. Well worth looking ahead to make a reservation!

A well known restaurant that has great food and service. We had a lovely meal and our waiter was friendly and obviously the long term server.... she was great. Perhaps its time for a makeover though. The overall experience could be improved with some better decorating or perhaps its time to move.

go out and splurge! Lotsa yummy stuff to spoil you! Not very kids friendly but quiet instead. Very upmarket.

Dear Smithpeter1932 Thank you so much for your review. I'm happy to hear that you enjoy dining here. And I'm glad that, in the title of your review, you mention that people should ignore me when they come here to dine. That's because I am always very busy in my small kitchen cooking simple honest French and Italian home cooking... More

The duck menu at this restaurant was the best I've ever had. My partner had pasta which was also great. The portions are not that big so there is room enough for a starter or a dessert. If you prefer excellent food instead of large average food portions this restaurant is the right address for you.

Ovation17, Owner at Flynn's Restaurant, responded to this review Thank you for taking the time to share your high praise of my food, namely the Duck, which I prepare here at Flynn's. For your information, the Duck is cooked slowly in it's own fat, with expensive sea-salt used by the world's top chefs, and some specially sourced Chinese five spice,... More

We live locally, but this was our first time at Flynn's. The restaurant is in a quiet road of the village of Yungaburra, I never really walked or driven past so it has not been an obvious choice for me so far. Finally, we decided to give it a go and we were pleasantly surprised! Sonia, the manager, made us... More

The menu displayed outside was different than the menu given inside, Pate was great, poor choices on the menu and the wine list was almost limited to $100+ wines. We were told that they were closing down for six weeks soon, but that is there problem not mine. I will be in no rush to return to this restaurant.

Ovation17, Owner at Flynn's Restaurant, responded to this review

Hi, First of all, the menu outside is posted sometimes just before we open the doors at 6pm. It changes slightly from day to day. When you were served you made it known that you were disappointed that we did not have a Rose on our wine list and the manager, Sonia, informed you that we would be closing for... More

Flynn's Restaurant has a small but delicious menu. The night we visited, we enjoyed an entree of Cognac and Duck liver pate with a red onion pickle served with fresh bread. We both agreed this was the best pate we had ever eaten. Mains were also delicious- my partner had the Prawn Linguine while I had the Ox Cheeks in... More

Thank you for your generous review, we do maintain a small menu so as to ensure that everything on it is presented to our diners at the highest standard we can offer. Everything is made here including our delicious pate and the red onion pickle. Our ingredients are mostly sourced locally which is another reason for the small selection that... More

This restaurant never fails to impress, the menu provides a small selection, but slow cooked and excellent. We both chose the duck as our main and were suitably rewarded as it simply melted in your mouth. The only downside, the wine list is a little overpriced.

Thank you for your high praise of the quality of the food we serve here at Flynn's. To address your comments on the pricing of our wine list, our wines are priced to make a profit as with ever increasing overheads and food costs, it is worth noting that I have not raised my prices on food since 2005.

These people know food, and know their business. The food is crafted by someone who understands the flavours and has taken the time to make them work together. Good selection on the menu. Great service, a really pleasant evening.
