We breakfasted twice at the Emporium, excellent service and personal attention to our needs. A good breakfast in a nice environment, plus an interesting water bottle, and yes, it was water.

The food was amazing. All 5 of us enjoyed our meals. Sadly the meal was let down by the very slow service. We waited 45 minutes for a beer and a coke. And no they hadn't been forgotten about either. If the up their drinks service then the food is worth a visit

We only popped in for a glass of wine but what a lovely building. Well worth doing the same. Good wine and beer choices too. Food looked to be very good. We simply weren't ready to eat when visiting. Nice spot to people watch.

A quirky venue and décor with hints of a bygone era. Lovely food and cheerful service with great outlook to Marine Parade and differing opportunities from bar seats to comfy lounges and dinner tables.

Within 10 minutes of ordering our food arrived, nicely presented however warm on top and cooler on the bottom. Maybe these dishes had been prepared and were being kept warm. Staff were friendly but the restaurant was very busy and noisy. Lovely surroundings.

We didn't have a huge appetite so we went for two entrees, or small plates as they describe them, accompanied by a couple of cool lagers on a boiling hot day. We sat in the sun outside. It's a lovely place to sit. The marscapone tortellini with salmon and peas was delicious, so much so that a larger serving would... More

Great food but make no mistake about it we are talking about a fine dining place. Service is fantastic but if you are hungry go elsewhere or head to Emporium with a full wallet.
