The food at the urchin bar is always so lovely. My friends and I have been quite a few times for birthday functions or just dinner. It's nice to go somewhere a bit different and the urchin bar certainly has character and a nice charm.

Lovely, relaxed atmosphere, nice garden seating out the back. Dog friendly. Happy to make hot coffee if you ask. They bring water to the table without having to ask. Friendly, cheerful staff. All good.

We strolled along Hampton Street one balmy night, intending to eat out - no booking in place. The restaurant we had in mind seemed noisy, with a bunch of party goers enjoying drinks in the foyer. So we opted to keep walking and see what...More
