    Not only is everything on the menu gluten-free, but it's also delicious. My non-gluten-free friend said she actually preferred Meantime's gluten-free pizza bases over regular pizza!

    Greeting on arrival was fast and friendly, but service went down hill from there. Our drink order was simple, yet one was forgotten and then took 10 more minutes to be received. When drinks were delivered the server spilt the $25 cocktail and then asked if we wanted it replaced, rather than just getting a new one. When taking the order was taken it was like the server wasn't really listening. One entre was supplied incorrectly. Once empty, our starter dishes remained on the table for the duration of our visit and were still there when we were leaving. When main meals arrived the server struggled to find room on the table due to the starter dishes still being there. Her comment, "I'll just need to put these where ever I can find space". We needed to ask three times for the ice cream that was include with the Kid's meal to be provided. While I love that the restaurant is 100% gluten free, giving my coeliac son peace of mind to be able to eat without issues, I did find the menu options a little limited when it came to lighter options, with only a few meals available that weren't either crumbed or deep fried. Salads were not even available for consideration. I would definitely eat here again, as I saw how comfortable it made my son for his birthday dinner. I would recommend it for Coeliacs and those with Gluten intolerances etc, but I wouldn't be rushing back any time soon for a simple family meal.

    Have been to Meantime a few times now. Every meal we’ve had has been great. Highly recommend. Love that the whole menu is gluten free. Even people who don’t need to eat gluten free can enjoy a delicious meal. Bonus that they are in the entertainment book and NRMA rewards as well

    Food was absolutely amazing. Great find for the celiac niece. Service was a little slow and I’m being generous. Nearly an hour wait with only 2 other tables seated. Asked for takeaway containers and they “forgot “. Could have been a one off, but will try again.

    Visiting from Brisbane and loved this place! It was my friends birthday and the lovely girl who was greeting at the front desk and served us was amazing and kind. She deserves a bonus!

    Staff were unsure of dietary guidelines and weren’t sure what was and wasn’t gluten free and dairy free we asked for a dairy free sticky date and got the dairy version we were then told there wasn’t a dairy free option and to pick something else then a few minutes later told us there was the dairy free option. My $45 steak was overcooked and chewy. The burger was burned and the Camembert cheese was solid instead of a dip consistency. We’ve come to meantime before and waiting 2.5hrs for our food and this time we came back and it took almost an hour just for half of the food to be bad. Overpriced as well. The staff weren’t sure if the icecream was gluten free either. Having celiacs at the table it wasn’t very helpful with them guessing what was and what wasn’t gluten and dairy free. Next time we will be going somewhere else as that was the second chance we gave the restaurant and it was just as bad as the first time. Also the garlic bread supposedly has a df option available but when we went to order it she told us it would just be bread and nothing else. Everytime we would ask if something was gf or df the staff kept saying “well did it say it on the menu” which was quite rude and we just wanted to make sure it was as someone of us could’ve gotten very very sick if eating the wrong thing

    The waiter was lovely and honest. The food was delicious. We went on a Tuesday night, so it was fairly quiet. Food came out quick and LOVE that it is all GF.

    We were totally blown away by Meantime’s commitment to providing quality gluten free food. This was our first ever family dinner experience with our 4yo coeliac son and we were super impressed, the pasta was exceptional- could not believe it was gluten free! We will be back without fail every time we visit Newcastle, thanks Meantime!!
