    Have been to Gerties many times over the years and sadly the experience has been steadily declining. This will def be the last time. Food was inedible. Pizza was just badly cooked bread with an inch of melted cheese. Waitress not bar tender knew what a vodka martini was. The table next to us ordered fish and it smelt so strong and off that we had to leave. Toilets were absolutely filthy. Such a great location and love the live music but this time we couldn’t leave fast enough.

    Go for the cocktails, yum The food was nice but a bit difficult to eat. The ambiance inside was great and the service was fantastic but the road noise was deafening.

    The fish was very dry and the noise level was not energetic but hectic. The service staff couldn’t be heard or hear. Hard to have a conversation without yelling. I would tell friends to give it a go but advise them of my last experience. Previous experiences have been much better.

    Servers continually asking if we wanted another drink. It felt intrusive at times. Charcuterie board was very basic. Such a great location!

    Such a gorgeous bar with great music, but watered down cocktails and cranky service. Really quite disappointing. No need to be hostile and treat patrons like they're a nuisance.

    Gertie's Bar is a great corner location at just below street level with wide open windows to take in everything. The staff are really nice and the food and drinks are varied , tasty and interesting with a central / south american theme. Good selection of local and international beer's and wines. There were enough people there on a late Sunday afternoon to provide a good atmosphere. It is good value . Definitely worth a visit on a lazy Saturday or Sunday afternoon

    Food ordered from viewing on line menu. What we got did not reflect the pics. In fact, we thought they'd delivered the wrong servings. The waitress said she'd speak to the chef and get back to us, she didn't. Coconut crumb fish beautiful but other mains just ok.

    I went with my partner (a Latino) and a couple of our friends (one of whish is also a Latina). We were excited to find a place that did South American style dishes. The food was nice but because they were entrees, they were small. Fair enough, but that meant it was very expensive for those kinds of dishes. I had hoped Gerties would be somewhere we could take guests to show off some of the wonderful flavours of South America, but it isn’t very good value for money so I don’t think we’ll be back.

    The food is solid, tasty but not overly inspiring. Prices are fair and I’d say the food matches it - no complaints at all. Service cheerful and good - the place was very busy and the atmosphere a lot of fun. A great pace for a dinner with friends but could only stay our allocated 90 minutes which is fine and we understand it but a bit frustrating. Really nice night out.

    Was a great night, lovely staff and great food. Was sitting next to a loud party which was a bit distracting but not the restaurants fault as the place was small so if they sat anywhere it would have been the same. Overall great night would recommend.
