Lunch outside with a great view of the Marina and hills. Our lunch was simple, fresh and tasty along with the house wine was just what we needed. The service was excellent. Would recommend North to anyone.

Lovely place to enjoy lunch with a view overlooking the marina. Beware the credit card surcharge added to the bill which seems common practice in Australia. Otherwise a lovely meal in lovely surroundings

Rather than judging North Bar & Kitchen by comparing it with other Shangri-La restaurants around the world, I compared it to its many immediate neighbours. It has a good menu, excellent food, effective service and is good value for money.

Is rows of restaurants with a great range of specialty dishes. Scenic & open air outside dining is most popular. Shangri La had a popular breakfast and I couldn't help notice North Bar and kitchen had very good specials.

After a huge dinner last night at Ochre, didn’t need a similar lunch. The $19.50 lunch was perfect, a choice of 1 main from a large menu plus a glass of wine was great value. Didn’t expect much but the seared scallops were superb and...More
