What a cool little place tucked away off Victoria Street. Our meals came out super fast and were absolutely spot on. We also ordered the camembert which had a 'secret sauce' on top to die for - I could have had it as dessert! Waitresses were lovely and very accommodating as we were tight from time (as were the chefs)... More

On 21 January I held my 60th birthday celebration dinner here with 30 of our good friends. As always Tony's were very accommodating. The food and service was great and well timed and the staff were very attentive and helpful. We had a wonderful night in our own area upstairs and the staff were all happy to hang around quietly...

Us 4 get to order different steaks which all were cooked property and taste great. However for the oyster dish, it wasn't as fresh as we were expected. How unfortunates that it was pricey dish as well. So... Great place for steak, but not so much for oyster.

Would never have seen/entered this place if it wasn't for trip advisor! On the recommendation of the lamb chops, hubby and I checked it out for dinner. Food was delicious! He loved the potato croquette but wished there was more than one! The chops were so meaty and there were so many of them! I wished mine were a little... More

An average place for steak and dessert. The steak and fries were ok. The dressing on the salad was truly horrible. Dessert (apple pie) was good. We spent roughly 50 dollars per person.

After work drinks in the city and needing some food we headed for our favourite inner city go to place. Arrived at 9:45pm before closing and received amazing service and great food. Have been here many times and have never been disappointed. It's not flash, but it's consistent and reasonably priced and the service is always top.

Very outdated, British style decorating with very few customers. Food items are mostly fried or generally unhealthy. Food was just okay, nothing special.
