After years of trying to get into 13 steps, we finally got in to fine the venue only dose tappa style food at the price of a full size meal anywhere else. Wine was crazy expensive. Unfortunately worth the experance

I was looking forward to revisiting this place after visiting it as 13 Steps 4 years ago. Great memories ! Seriously, if you have reopened 2 weeks ago and the kitchen is closed at 8.15, well, I won’t be back

The new layout of the bar looks absolutely fantastic. It is located right in the middle of town in a cellar which adds to the experience. The wine list is extensive with quality wines. Well done to the team!

Fabulous night spent at Thirteen Steps. From the great service to the amazing food to the delicious wine! Highlight dish was the broccoli with field mushrooms & the chicken! Dessert was phenomenal!

We dined recently at this restaurant. Very unique atmosphere. Highly attentive staff and owner. We were seated very promptly and our drinks order was taken soon after. The food was served in a timely manner. Most recommended are the Zucchini Fritters with yoghurt. Amazing flavour...More

Spring clean and a new vibe. Thirteensteps has closed its doors. The business is now Walker bros wine bar, the new name is a salute to the history of the building.

The owners said it was time for the restaurant to reinvent itself. It’s sad to say goodbye, as we have built a strong following, however shifting the culinary inspiration, and reimagining the space feels right. Thirteen steps which took over the cellar under barnard street over 5 years ago will undergo a frantic refit in preparation for the new offering. We will reincarnate as a funky, friendly bar with a new name, look and menu. Co-owners Roy and David are bringing you a relaxed approach to great food and wine. We invite you to come share in a great quality casual feed, with local produce, awesome wine list, craft beer and beer on tap.
