Was a good place to go but currently not open so not sure why reviews are still showing for it. Good place to catch up with friends and esp convenient to park underneath and then go up for a quiet meal - can be as...cosy or good for groups too never fealt rushed or pressured to leave like some other placesMore

Had a wonderful night at platform 818. Great service with our waitress Alice being bubbly and very friendly throughout the night. The food was delicious with five different courses and all complimenting the next well. Had a few delicious cocktails too and the setting was...just beautiful. Will be back again for another lovely meal. Recommend this place very highly for a dinner at a great price.More

I dined on the $79 5-course menu. The 1st 2 courses were a bit uninspiring. A warm roll with hummous and panfried haloumi with drizzle of honey. The 3rd course of smoked trout was lovely but would have appreciated just a little more. The beef...tenderloins were medium rare and tasted delicious. It was beautifully plated and I cannot fault it. The piece de resistance was the bread and butter pudding. We expected a boring dish of dried fruit and soaked bread pieces. It came out as a small slab, with ice cream, sauce and theatrically finished with a pour of dry ice. It was just flamboyant. It was a lovely end to the meal. The entire 5 course was just nice, nothing too heavy and we went home contented. I had the 160ml Cool Wood Shiraz which I recommend. There is also a $39 beverage package for selected choices. Kumar and Anne were our servers and they both were lovely. Enough attention but not too intrusive. Great staff.More

Great location, great service, great cocktails and delicious 5 course menu especially the honey haloumi which was our highlight. It's a shame the restaurant was not at full capacity.

Food is good, won’t rush back, however we didn’t mind as it has friendly staff and service, good ambience for a chit chat and location is easy to find. Pannacota had a theatrical presentation, it was epic!! Loved it :) :)
