As regular visitors to this restaurant, we like its local location, ambience and design, and food quality, as well as good service. Keep up the great work,...but above all, the focus on food quality, taste (we like food well seasoned, and interesting flavours, as in the gnocchi dish with truffle and mushrooms).
We also appreciate the specials menu at dinner that keep things interesting, when you are a regular.
Super dessert,....The Choc Brownie,...one of the best..!

The most amazing food and customer service. We sat at a table overlooking the water, and even lost track of the time after 2 hours as it was such an enjoyable spot for a catch up.

Great atmosphere. Service was friendly and efficient. The squid was absolutely amazing, so tender and delicious! I had the eye fillet for main, nice cut of meat, very tender and juicy and the red wine jus was rich and complimented the meat nicely. Had the brownie for dessert, would have it again!

Very disappointed actually especially given we have frequented the cafe at Mermaid Waters. Staff member not interested/not helpful and really not good value for money at all.
It wasn't that busy and the meals took over 50 minutes...won't go back sorry.

We love Double Barrel and go there once or twice a week and have done since it opened. Unfortunately yesterday (Sunday Lunch) was the worst experience we've had and it was so bad that it prompted me to write a negative review for the first time. Normally it's a 5 star all around. However today it was clear that there was no management on duty and the service was terrible. At the time the restaurant was not half full.
.
The food was absolutely delicious, could not be faulted.

On getting home with our take away order for one who couldn't make brunch, we had ordered gluten free and found that it was not gluten free after all! It was a very disappointing day.

If we had not been there so many times to know how great it usually is, we would not be going back.

Not an ideal venue during the cooler months. Hostess happy to help cute guys get better seating but not middle aged parents with kids. Didn't even get to order the food as the waiter never came back after delivering the overpriced wine which wasn't even a standard serving size. Venue was a miserable place and patrons leaving in droves rather than suffer the wind for overpriced eating experience.

A French waiter was extremely rude to me as I didn’t realise I had to check in even though my friend had , Asian waiter called my pregnant friend fat it was extremely embarrassing. Food was over priced , gluten free bread stale. The glasses had lipstick marks on it and when we asked to change them they were rude and forgot .

Wonderful ambience , good choice on menu ,very good drinks menu and my Fettuccine with lemon sauce and bugs keeps me wanting to go back for more . The Nasi Goreng I was told was very tasty as well but could have had a little more substance in it , eg the pork could have been more plentiful . All in all very good and I will be back
