Amount of food was great but quality was poor on some dishes. Particular our beef main, which was sent back cold and had to be redone. The bouillabaisse was warm at best, concerning when you’re talking about a seafood soup. Starters were great but bad food coupled with poor service & poor attention to detail, I have to say that overall it was a let down & a terrible waste of money. Furthermore, it was my 40th birthday dinner!! We have dined with libertine many, many times over the years and have always enjoyed the atmosphere, attitude of the staff & are very fond of this restaurant. I actually feel bad passing on a negative review! But I also feel that that’ll never learn if nobody says anything. The food can be rectified but inefficient and uninterested staff cannot if no commentary is passed on. I hope the restaurant takes this as intended - a curtesy so they can improve.

Place has a great feel and ambience, staff were friendly and polite but not overly helpful; food & cocktails were excellent, really great quality, but the wife and I ordered a share plate and an entree and before the waitress left my wife luckily asked if the share plate came with rice which it didn't. Entree, shared main and rice came out and the serving was very small. Reiterating great taste, but would have been nice if the waiter put that heads up to us that 1-shared plate doesn't quite fill you up. So in short, would recommend, but staff probably need to make the extra effort to ensure the customers will be sufficiently filled with their order. Is quite expensive too so just keep in mind, one for the special occassions.

I had a great night celebrating a birthday with my best friends (twins) on Saturday. My only suggestion would be to bring out the cutlery (spoons) when the cake was coming out. Ruined the surprise a bit. Other than that, food was wonderful and wait staff friendly.

If avaikable - id always recommend sitting inside for ambience - especially this tine of year - although they have great heating outside. The food is always fantastic and the service is great. Go the banquet for great variety and taste sensations... ( and make sure to try the eggplant.. its amazing.. and im not a vegan or vego! - just sayin!

We were given a fabulous couples table. We decided on the 7 course banquet menu which was an enormous amount of food and good value for money. Personally we enjoyed the entree meals more due to their flavours and I thought the Chilli Eggplant was amazing. If we visited again we would just chose a number of entree size dishes.

Delicious food and a vibrant lunch-time atmosphere all made for a wonderful get-together. Service wasn't as great as it could have been - when asked for a wine recommendation the waiter said it was this thing...?! And at the end of the meal the only coffee on available was Vietnamese.

We were the noisy table of 9 and we had a ball.
We lunch 12pm to late every few months and this was our first outing after Covid.
Libertine service was first class and the banquet food perfect for our group.

It was my wife's Birthday and they gave us an awesome table which was a small two seater booth. From our welcome to the table service it was all very polite and we never had to look around for wait staff. Our glasses were kept topped up and the food was hot, fresh and very tasty.
We would recommend this place for a special occasion or just a night out plus 2 hours free parking in the underground car park was a bonus!

Cheers,
Kevin

We've been huge fans of Libertine for years, but this occasion was quite disappointing. Loud music stopped us from having conversation that didn't involve leaning over the table, possibly they were trying to drown out the traffic noise. We're generally vegetarian but we make exceptions at great places so went with the carnivorous winter lunch. Each course left us hoping the next will be better. Definitely not the Libertine experience of the past where even the most basic dish was a delight on the senses, this was more like lunch at grandma's.
