    Very well organised given there was a major event on at Stadium Australia with orders processed quickly and drinks and food served quickly. Excellent diverse menu choice - even allowing for the more limited Events Menu. Some tables, near the kitchen, feel a bit disconnected from main area and outside, but maybe some customers will prefer this type of ‘privacy’. Great outdoor area.

    My go to place before or after events. Predrink and a couple of share plates before the AFL. $16 for 3 arancini balls may seem a tad expensive but they are amazing ! The homemade sauce 🤌🏻

    Booked online for a late lunch. No indication that the slot offered was between sittings and we could be served only coffee for first 25 minutes. Also no mention that only the limited “event” menu would be available. Disappointing! Food OK.

    It was a nice cafe, I wouldn’t say the menu was inspired. The food was average my partner had the burger which was nice, I had the pasta which was over cooked, although the texture of the pasta was perfect and it was yummy just a little over cooked.

    We had a table booked for 6 o’clock and had ordered our door by 6.10. Drinks came out 40 mins later and we had to cancel our food order by 7pm as we had a show to watch at 7.30. We were told to be patient however we had ordered the cold meats which required no cooking so not sure why we were told to be patient. Would not even consider going back

    We booked for four people and were greeted with a smile and a bottle of water. Ordered via the app which was convenient but asking for a tip was a bit rich as the prices were high. Table was unstable and small for four adults. Food was good but mains came out before entrees. It was an events menu so food was pre - prepared. Drinks prices were good and came out quickly.

    Malone, Friday 21 for 10 people Everyone enjoyed the food. the Lasagne was particularly good. What some of us didn't like was the ordering scenario. Whilst we are all are computer literate, none of us like having to order from phones or ipads. If we went back there I would like to see some hard copies (paper menus) please. It should be no effort for you to have some available and offer the option. Overall, an enjoyable night. Kind regards Marian Malone

    Hi JmWatson, Unfortunately we have lost a number of trained staff that weekend due to the effects of the recent Omicron outbreak. We have been undergoing some training of new staff and as a result, had to switch off the cocktails on this date. I'm sorry your experience at our establishment was affected. We are doing the best we can to keep our doors open and appreciate your understanding. Regards, Andrew - Management

    After walking around checking out the other food venues we decided on Abattoir Blue for the outside ambience of the old building and the mosaic tiles. Service was extremely excellent, beer ice cold and the food excellent and good value. Highly recommend this place.
