Service was terrible. Food was slow. Extremely overpriced. Don't bother with the double bay restaurant , kingsford is so much better!

We had a very good meal and a bottle of wine. The price was reasonable with 50% off the food in January. However, I would never pay the full price; $5 per oyster is a bit rich for the quality of service and the surroundings.

I dined here on the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. This restaurant accepts bookings. Service was prompt and the food good without being overly expensive. I would definitely go back.

Beautiful restaurant in tree lined Double Bay. Sit outside on a cool night under the heaters and the fairy lights. Incredible food, great wine list, exceptional service. Will be recommending.

I came here when it first opened a few years back and the atmosphere was amazing. The cocktails, the dishes, the music. It all made for a great night out. Do not make the mistake of ordering sushi or baby rolls or anything after school...More

Double Bay
Located in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, Double Bay is a
one of the city's most beautiful harbour

open air cafes for a latte or a meal and enjoy the
people-watching. Double Bay was once an exclusive
enclave for an older, elite population, but new
