I came here for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed the starters of the grilled mushrooms and salt and pepper calamari. My salmon was overcooked. I asked for medium and it was well and truly well done. I am not the type to take food back and it was certainly edible but not so appetising when it is overcooked. My... More

The cocktails here are delicious. I had the Fairy Floss Martini and the Hundreds & Thousands Martini. At happy hour they were only $10 a piece. I would definitely go back. The service is great too.

Service was good with friendly staff. Food was incredible and drinks were good! Happy Hour offer of $10 cocktails on a friday night after 9pm was a real highlight. Will be back soon!

We went to Lil Darlin on Saturday night as we live locally, we arrived around 6pm, we received our starters and our wine, whilst eating a couple arrived and asked what our starter was, they then proceeded to order the same thing, they had eaten theirs, and had received their main meal, we were still waiting on our starter plates...

We live close to this buzzing little place and thought we would give it a go. We sat outside and tried a couple of tables but all were either on an incline ( so much that glasses were slowly sliding off the table) or wobbly - a pet hate of mine! We sat at the window counter and ordered some... More

We went as a family to celebrate my daughter's completion of year 12 as she saw it as "cool and trendy" and was attracted by the cocktail menu. It was packed for a Tuesday night and the restaurant apologised as they said they were down on staff. However having to wait 30 mins between ordering a cocktail and getting it... More

My first time here was on a blind date so it was lucky the venue was nice! The food was ok I had the calamari, risotto balls and a pink fairy floss cocktail (which looked super cool). The only issue with the restaurant is its VERY noisy so it's hard to have a conversation. But there were lots of people... More

Normally I'd walk straight past a restaurant when I'd already eaten, but I saw their bar and felt like a nice drop of red. I wasn't disappointed with the setting, the wine, the music or the smiling and welcoming staff. I found a reasonably good Pinot Noir, and surprisingly had three quality Pinots to choose from. Most bars or restaurants... More

Went here Sunday night for some tea after the beach. Place looks beautiful from outside. Lovely atmosphere. Friendly staff. Didn't have a cocktail but they looked and smelt delicious. There were only 2 issues, the weird toilet set up where you have to go outside down a back alley and the food. Unfortunately the food was what we were after.... More
