Disappointed as this was one of our favourite restaurants. Everyone had been here before and everyone was disappointed this time.

Fabulous food and mood in no small part created by the attitude and care of the owner and staff. Terrific spot. One of those restaurants where every visit is an occasion to remember fondly.

Took a friend there as a surprise for her birthday, neither of us having been there before. We loved it, and I can definitely see myself returning one day to try all of the amazing-looking mains. Customer service on the night was impeccable.

Great food and service in a lovely setting. Ask for a table upstairs on the terrace - it's under cover and there are heaters.

Enjoyed my birthday dinner at Our Place and brought my adult daughter who was so impressed with the food said why haven’t you brought me here before now. All our meals were top quality without the top price and also BYO wine. Such a great location in Balmain and staff are fabulous. Glad this place survived the Covid lockdown where we need to support our local businesses.

Marco & his team never disappoint! The venue is a neighbourhood gem.
The gnocchi is the best in Aus, maybe the world.
Always such great specials it’s hard to choose what to order.

All staff love working there, possibly ‘cause Marco loves the customers & feeding us so well

Our Place always delivers. Delicious food, served quickly (we were dining with kids) and attentive service.

The night we were there they were giving away complimentary soup to members of the community in need.

I rated the ambience four stars because, although the restaurant tends towards a casual atmosphere, the staff are just a bit more casual (especially in dress) than I would expect for this level of good food, service and price.

Our Place at Darling is a great place for good food and friendly service. The venue is small therefore due to COVID19 regulations they cannot host too many guests. So book on time! Having less less guest at the same time actually made it a more enjoyable experience for me since it is not so crowded. The menu is limited, but the food is excellent!

A delightful experience celebrating a birthday with friends. Great food, wine, service & atmosphere plus special attention with a birthday candle in the dessert, staff singing Happy Birthday and a complimentary cocktail. Can't complain about that. Hats off to Marco and his wonderful staff. So great to have Our Place on Darling open again!
