We had a party of 10 enjoy our Christmas 2019 Ladies lunch at NOTA on Sunday, we found the service from staff to be excellent and the $55 per head menu fantastic. The quality, variety, presentation and quantity of food was excellent. Nota was also very accommodating around dietary requirements. We all had a wonderful afternoon and I would definitely recommend NOTA to others. Thanks for a great afternoon.

Well thought out clever menu with just enough choices. Food was as described and beautifully cooked and presented. Flavours were clear and distinct rather than mushed together. Service was friendly and unobtrusive with good knowledge of the menu and wine list. Wines were again cleverly selected and chosen well to match food. Lovely ambience and value for money dining experience. Thanks Seb and team

Best lunch I’ve had in a long time! Food was absolutely delicious with fresh ingredients and beautifully cooked. I had the octopus and my friend ordered the white fish ceviche. Even the mixed salad we shared was amazing. The menu has lots of interesting and innovative dishes. Excellent service. Can’t wait to go back.

Lovely dinner at NOTA. Service was particularly good, food super tasty. I wish it was slightly more atmosphetic, (darker,) with the music a bit louder.

Would highly recommend !

The food and service at this place was outstanding and reasonably priced in comparison. Our only complaint was that the noise level inside was high so in retrospect it may have been a little quieter on the footpath. Will definitely be back !

We had a lovely night at Nota last Friday. Our group of six first balked at the set menu which is a requirement if you have 6 or more in the booking. However, there was lots of choice and the servings were generous. Overall, the food was fantastic, and the service friendly and efficient.

The food and the service were excellent at Nota. My only complaint is that it was very noisy and thus very hard to have a conversation.

I would recommend Nota as the staff were extremely helpful on the night. The food was excellent and brought out on time. The banquet of 55.00 per head was normally for 6 people only but they catered for our party when only four could show up. They also allowed us to stay over 4hrs due to the second sittings being cancelled.

This is simply an excellent restaurant. The food is well prepared with care, the menu pleasantly surprised you and the quirky wine list well curated. I have recommended this restaurant to my friends and they have had the same experience. I look forward to seeing how it evolves.

Outstanding in every way. The Nota team go beyond in service and food quality regardless of how busy they are. A modern menu and great value wine list make it a must for casual dining with silver service food quality.

Service was great and food was good, snacks were all delicious but the mains lacked seasoning and were a little bland compared to the other food. Cocktails were fantastic and wine recommendation from the waitress was great! Will definitely return.

Second visit to NOTA. We have been overly impressed on both occasions with the chef's selection. Each course was delicious - especially the fish burger, salmon and beef bourguignon , small but interesting wine list - we had bottle of Beaujolais and Cab Franc and they were both terrific. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Fast becoming our favourite restaurant....

Excellent food, of note was the slow cooked BBQ octopus. The wait staff knew the food and wine options very well and were attentive without being obsequious. I felt it was good value for the quality of food.

I dined with a group of ladies on a Friday lunchtime. We all felt a little pressure to have the chefs suggestion which was a set course of $55 or $75. This was recommended as were a booking for 6 or more. None of us wanted an entree or desert. Other than that the food was delicious and service was very good. The restaurant was quiet however so we expected good service.
