Great food and enjoyable dinner - as good as anywhere in the city. There should be more places like this in Mt Barker. Girls love the cocktails

My husband and I would consider ourselves foodies and HMBL definitely ticked all of our boxes!
The food was amazing! Serving sizes were very generous and the prices were very affordable. We chose to go with the three tapas for $24 and ordered six between us. Drinks are also very affordable, I was drinking gin and tonic at $11 ea.
The staff were very personable and took the time to come and hang at our table, get to know us and also suggest other restaurants in our area that we might want to visit!
Will definitely be going back sometime soon 💖

The cocktails were unique. The food was delicious and filling, well priced, and the portion sizes were bigger than what we expected. The customer service is always fantastic and staff always friendly and happy to have a chat.

We went to HMBL last Friday for the first time We were very happy with this quaint restaurant I had the Forager mushroom dish with haloumi and it was delicious Well worth trying and far more filling than similar items at other restaurants and cheaper too. I’m going back to try the tapas menu after 5pm

THE FOOD IS AMAZING!
They cater for both vegan and meat eaters which is fantastic. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is very cosy. They even do takeaway if you can’t eat in. My new favourite place. You’ll love it too.

Simply delicious food and cocktails
We were very well looked after by Brad and his team for our 31st wedding anniversary ❤️
We were given a scrumptious dessert to celebrate the occasion 😁

The place is small, so when the staff talk about you behind your back you can definitely hear it.

This was due to us not wanting to finish the cocktail as we thought it was too strong. A complete individuals point of view. I was happy to pay for it.

But when the staff then question why and ask, “have you eaten today”, “there was only 45mls of alcohol in the cocktail” that doesn’t change the fact that we accidentally chose a drink we just didn’t like and had nothing against the staff making the drink.

Overall the food was delicious, the atmosphere of the bar was lovely but next time be mindful of accepting that when a customer doesn’t like a drink, it’s fine to ask if they want a different cocktail (which you guys did and it was very professional) but to continue to talk about it and question the customer why, was not professional.

Food and service were great. The place has a great atmosphere and good vibe. I would definitely go back. Only thing that could improve in my opinion is perhaps a palate cleanser option or two on the menu given the variety of dishes.
