I went to Acre with a group of three friends on a Sunday afternoon. The restaurant was packed but the service was friendly and prompt and the food was incredible! My only negative would be that it was very noisy, in part because it was raining outside so all the windows and doors were closed. In all, I would definitely recommend Acre and would choose to eat there again.

First time I went it was great, this was the second time and a total let down. It has gone downhill. The service was terrible and food was average.

The food is excellent with interesting and very tasty dishes on the menu.
However on the night we were there the service was very slow, especially with the drinks and with one vegetable dish coming out too late to be eaten with the main meals. We hope to see a sharpening of focus in terms of service on our next visit.

A very kid friendly venue with an outdoor area with a play area and a chicken coup. The food is very good for sharing. Everyone had a good time!

We just moved to area from Enmore. Table for 9. Service was exceptional right down to history of restaurant and food; details on suppliers; recommendations and general assistance. The food was “to die for” with extraordinary combinations and flavours and the food was fresh - some from their own garden and you could taste the richness. We are coming again and planning a corporate event there. Noise level was pleasant and ambience brilliant.

Food was excellent, at a reasonable price, and the atmosphere was welcoming and vibrant, in a great and quirky location. Love the sustainability and urban productive garden setting. It was let down by service that was very slow at times and somewhat inattentive, e.g. we had to ask for the dessert menu several times. Noise level was almost unbearable. Maybe some noise reducing fabrics may muffle the reverberating sounds of multiple conversations bouncing off hard surfaces

All of my guests raves on how nice the venue and the food was, the fact that you can also have a birthday cake made for you on the premises is an awesome bonus as well, that too was delicious, fresh organic and topped off our lunch, definitely will be back there on the next special occasion, thank you!

We've been to Acre a few times but this is the first time I've been disappointed. There was a wedding on, so I don't know if this was the reason for the extremely poor and slow service. 20 minutes to get a drink ordered taken (apart from the very expensive sparkling water), then another 15 minutes to actually get our drinks - no apology. Food as usual was very good, although my husband thought the steak (at $48) was cold, as opposed to room temperature. It was perfectly cooked though so I was ok with that. Its not a cheap meal by any standards, and normally I'm ok with that because standards have been high, but they let themselves down on Saturday! Would still recommend based on previous experiences but they are on notice!

Very noisy overall, plus a large group next to us were standing in the common area between tables mingling as if it was a private function. They were crowding so a couple of elbows nearly went in our drinking water, as well as it only added to the noise. Do feel staff could have managed the group just a * little * more.

But overall a great meal and place and lovely evening, table staff looked after us very well. The special order cake was to die-for

I had seen some posts on Facebook regarding Acre Eatery and my curiosity was peaked. I organised a ladies lunch with my beautiful friends who all love their food and were just as keen to dine here. Once we parked we were pleasantly surprised by the look of the place. A gorgeous, rustic farm like feel. We loved the entrance that was adorned with gorgeous grapevines, very European.
We were greeted by a very nice waitress who seated us in the main dining room. The room resembled a barn like feel which was warm and rustic.
What was a godsend was how well air-conditioned the place was, a welcome relief from the heat.
We perused the menu and were very excited about our choices. We started off with cocktails then progressed to share some selected entrees including the spiced carrot hommus, eggplant and burrata. The standout though was the delicious beef carpaccio. All the entrees were flavoursome and well presented.
For our mains I ordered the woodfired cauliflower which I really enjoyed. The shared fat chips were devoured in an instant. My party ordered the garfish, risotto and gnocchi. Nothing was left on our plates which t me is a good indication of satisfaction.
Dessert didn't disappoint either with us ordering affogatos, seasonal fruit, peach frangipani tart and apricot macaron ince cream sandwich. All were delicious.
Overall I would highly recommend Acre Eatery . I am looking forward to organising breakfast and dinner as well at this gorgeous establishment.

We went for the second time with family last night and the food was exceptional but sadly the service wasn’t great. It was poorly managed the first time round with bad communication between waiters but we thought we’d give it another go as the atmosphere and setting were perfect for a family birthday. The manager was curt and not friendly at all, the waiters all told us conflicting things about what menu we could order where and how. The table service was slow and again, confused to the point where the waiters had to ask the manager what was going on. Disappointing considering how much we paid. But can’t fault the food, delicious and perfectly cooked. Sadly the service tip wasn’t optional and was included in the bill....

Really great food and friendly staff. We were amazed that we were given one of the best seats in the house to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The young lady who served us was very professional and looked after us very well. We were impressed with the décor and the food and drink was of high quality. Even though it was a Friday night Acre was not overcrowded and the noise level was not excessive. All in all a wonderful dining experience.

We where a small group of nine people and the food an service was excellent. Had a vegetarian in our midst and he was very happy with his options. The Local ingredients where greatly appreciated. Good atmosphere and great waiting staff.
Downside: we got charged 10% gratuity on the drinks. Did not go down well with the members in the group. Understand 10% on the meal - ok. But then again on top of the drinks. Feels like fleecing the client.

We got married at Camperdown Commons a couple of years ago and have gone back to Acre for our anniversary dinner the past couple of years. The atmosphere, staff and the food keep us coming back (I also went for lunch yesterday). Fresh, delicious and ideal for vegetarians with non-vegetarians friends/partners. Also good value for such excellent food. Highly recommended!

The food was great, the wines delicious but the service from our waitress was awful. Possibly the most unhappy waitress i have ever encountered. She rolled her eyes continuously, walked off half way through a drinks order and then when she dropped the butter knife down my dads leg she rolled her eyes and told us it wasn't that bad. She was just utterly miserable her tone brought down the tone of the environment. Such a shame as its a beautiful venue.

A wonderful discovery! The food was excellent and fresh with lots of choices! The setting unique in the midst of the pocket gardens. We liked the farm-to-table concept and that all produce is local. The service was friendly and they left us plenty of time to enjoy a leisurely lunch. We will definitely go back!
