Excellent food with a fine dining twist from a local instutition. The dumplings are particularly impressive, as was the pork jowl. An excellent date night or catch up with friends!

We had the $45 lunch special and loved it. Great food especially the beef cheeks and the chocolate mousse dessert. Very quiet afternoon but staff were attentive.

Had a fabulous dinner Saturday night. The staff were genuine, attentive and very sweet to treat me with a complimentary glass of bubbles to congratulate me on a special occasion. Everything we ordered was delightful in taste and presentation and they even snuck in a palette cleanser in between courses as a treat as well.

The interior is stylish, the music was upbeat and perfectly suited to the environment.

The staff invited us back for breakfast the next day and I can't wait to go.

We enjoyed lunch on a winter's day. The restaurant was quite cool and drafty. The menu was interesting and the food tasty. I would recommend adding more descriptors to the meal ingredients to avoid disappointing customers, ie. if chilli is used. Overall our experience was good. My friends enjoyed the gnocchi while I had the cos salad with caper dressing. Yum!

An absolute pleasure.
The Saturday night was cold and wet outside and once we were inside we were treated with the utmost attention and tremendous detail and honesty.
On the night, front of house manager Santiago showed us a gastronomical experience with starters through to mains. My partner an I shared everything and every dish over delivered with detailed care and technique that had its own unique techniques and expressed the excellence of fresh ingredients.
We both look forward to bringing our now friends to enjoy the experience as there seems to be great movement on the menu in regards to seasonality and its apparent the chef and management have a great feel of how to run a vision through to service.

When I first made this booking I didn’t expect the place to be so small and quaint, however I don’t mind the space, it was a lovely and intimate environment, with easy listening music in the background and they definitely delivered. The Service was immaculate, very attentive and polite and the food was amazing, actually it was to die for, I had the fish and I hadn’t tasted something so heavenly for a quite a while, the fish cooked to perfection and the flavour was everlasting. Definitely a place I would come back to and definitely would recommend to all!

Our arrival was greeted with smiles, the coffee was great, the food both different and delicious (think brunch classics given a fresh twist) the service friendly yet unobtrusive... My husband, myself and our two boys aged 8 and 11 had a fantastic and relaxing experience at Acacia - highly recommend!

OMG! It’s all about the staff! Plus the food was amazing. Our guy knowledgeably guided us through the menu and we three were delighted. Confit duck with crumpet? 10/10. White bean purée with chorizo. 10/10. Salmon with devilled eggs 10/10. havent stopped talking about your venue. Read the lunch and dinner menu on way out, planning our return for sure.

We had the degustation menu. Four entrees, two mains, two desserts. Some dishes were better than others but all were good to outstanding. Service was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. All the dishes were interesting either in presentation or content. The fish was outstanding.

The place was great and the menu had some really interesting and different dishes. The crumbed and stuffed mussels were the highlight. The downside was the the restaurant didn’t have my opentable booking in their system but luckily they had a table available

The food was truly outstanding and we have now been there for Brunch, lunch and dinner. The owners and staff are lovely and the restaurant layout is simple but nicely done. A few more things to try on the menu so will be back again.

Everything was AMAZING! We did the Chef’s tasting and every course was so so good. I cannot say enough good things about our experience from the food to the service and everything in between. It was, hands down, one of the best meals we had in Australia.
