    Cafe Latte is a local favourite and never fails to impress. The food is brilliant, beautifully presented and always something new to try. Staff are fantastic, attentive and friendly. Can't wait to come back again soon.

    Lovely contemporary quiet restaurant where we lunched. Enjoyed a tuna steak salad which was bursting with flavour & superbly presented. Don’t miss out ordering their potato fry’s, fried to perfection, crisp & light! Substantial servings, excellent value! If you haven’t been, I highly recommend

    Thought it was an Italian eatery. It has changed to an all-day breakfast menu plus a couple of lunch specials. Not what I was expecting. Good coffee though.

    Lovely cosy restaurant with professional attentive staff. Good wine selection and not over the top on wine by the glass. Fish was fresh and very flavoursome but a tad on the expensive side give the small piece of fish that was served.

    Cafe Latte is a place I love to go: it feels good, you can have a great conversation, convient location and great food. However, three things have changed over the years. 1. Hours, they appear to no longer open for breakfast 2. Chai, they no longer offer Chai Latte in their drinks selection 3. Service, and this is the important element, some of the waiting staff are dismissive, surly and they just don’t make you feel welcome. (and this wasn’t the newer staff). Our dining experience was great this week ... except right at the end when the service element played an abrupt negative role turning a great night into one with an unnecessary crappy end. So ... I’d say give it a go but be wary of the Service attitude and if you get rushed out some of that ... don’t go back because it means our experience has become common practice.

    We ordered Gnocci which was so salty that it was unenjoyable. We also ordered veal scallopine which was very good. Service was good and we were given a free drink each because of the poor quality of the gnocci, but it di not compensate for the failure with the food

    The staff usually so helpful and pleasant clearly had a problem. The service was painfully slow the meals took over an hour to be served and the restaurant was half empty. The food was delicious except for one dish the veal, it arrived 10 minutes after the rest of the meals, clearly forgotten and unfortunately over cooked to the consistency of rubber. I’m sorry to say a less then impressive experience.

    I found the restaurant to be very noisy. Table next with 3 men who were very unrespectful for other diners. They were talking very loud. The service was slow and food did not have taste and was not hot. I asked questions of waiter and he could not understand English and kept speaking Italian words and I didn't know what he was talking about. I have been coming to this restaurant for years and I was very disappointed overall.

    Food was Ok to pretty good. No issues with the attentive waiters. No-one seemed to know about the wines, ie the tasting notes or even having tried them which was surprising and disappointing. Management needs to invest more in education of their staff.
