Hadn't been to this restaurant for several years. Now wish we had been back sooner. Friends recently reintroduced us to Argo. We were very impressed.

For the hungrier ones an entre and... More

Dinner at Argo, reservation not made but we were squeezed in on a busy night. The service was excellent and the meal was amazing, would recommend the oysters and or the prawn entrees, delicious and the chocolate dessert was 'wow'

We had a casual dinner here grazing through the entree menu The oysters were the stand out for me and the wine menu was good and the service friendly We enjoyed ourselves and would definitely return Can see this would be a lot of fun in the middle of summer with cold beer on tap and good food

This place has food to die for. I ordered the seafood stew, which was so full of flavour and tasty. For dessert I chose the Trio of Chocolate. OMG this was sooo amazing. The meal is quite large so ended up sharing it with my daughter. The staff are attentive and helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This place was amazing, Turnesd up on a cold Monday evening and had the place to ourselves to start with, but filled up over time. Obviously a popular place to go. The food was amazing, of masterchef quality. Beautifully presented, but good quantity and flavoursome. Te desserts were to die for! Very pleasant waitress served us, was friendly and helpful....

We went with no expectations. It was surprisingly busy but that did not detract from our experience. I had oysters to start followed by Scotch Fillet with Beef Short Rib and both were to die for. My husband had fish of the day which was fresh snapper followed by Brulee and for quite a good fad he rated the tastes... More
