We had a most enjoyable experience at Our Table. The food was excellent, as was the service. A bit noisy, but that's what happens when everyone is having a good time. Yhe gnocchi with pumpkin and spinach was outstanding and the honeycomb cheesecake was divine. We would definitely return and highly recommend this restaurant.

A group of friends had dinner at "Our Place on Darling", they suggested we take the private dining room which seats 10 people and it was perfect . We loved the food and it was great value for money, byo wine was a bonus as well. The staff were very friendly, we will be back.

We love this restaurant. Great atmosphere and really good food. The staff are friendly which makes the experience better. Another great aspect is that you can book a time when you want to be there and not one of those places with only two sittings! A great place to eat and relax and highly recommended.

Loved this place! It was my second time there. The food is delicious. They know how to cook their proteins and the skin was crispy on the fish as promised in their menu. The flavours are wow as well. We had the barramundi with crispy skin which was yum, the lamb was pink and juicy and the confit duck was delicious. The desserts were yummy particularly honey comb cheese cake was to die for. Great espresso martinis as well. The service was very attentive and polite. It just felt like one big happy family everyone who worked there. We loved it and would love to go back again at some point.

Prompt and friendly service, great food. Interesting menu with good variety and options. I appreciate that they allow BYO (wine only). The place has aged well and shows a few signs of wear & tear.. but that Our Place!

Food was superb, staff were under the pump & restaurant was full. We had the oysters & polenta chips to start (oysters are freshly shucked & amazing)!!!! I had the duck confit salad which was divine, other guests had the burger & the pesto gnocchi. Topped off with dark chocolate truffles & coffee & the chocolate fondant. Well priced for the quality of the food. Repeat customers- love the incredible quality of food served here. A little noisy if you are looking for a quieter ambience- but this was not a problem for us.

Our group from Canada were celebrating 2 fiftieth birthdays and had a great time. We originally began going to our place for the welcoming and fun ambiance and delicious home made food but we've continued for the excellence in service, and welcoming hosts and servers.

This time, the owner and his son even took time to visit with us and share some personal Australian stories. We loved that they were running in a marathon for men's mental health and had a promo on for anyone NOT using a cellphone at the table.

Our entire crew feels that "OUR PLACE" is our place! 10 out of 10 - I recommend!

Our Place was a good experience overall, however they did run out of a couple of dishes relatively early. Food we got was very good, service was acceptable, room is loud but mot unbearable. Overall a good dining experience

Second time eating at this place and thoroughly enjoyed it again. Brought some friends this time and they loved it too. So good that its byo wine which keeps the cost down. It was a little too noisy though as it was a cold night and the front door needed to stay closed. But overall a great night. The staff and service was top notch as was the food.

We love this place for offering vegetarian options. (And not just the usual mushroom risotto)

food was more than average. It was hard to identify what kind of meat was in the beef burger... definitely not beef

Enjoyed our meal however it was not quite as good as the last 2 times we have eaten here. The first couple of times the gnocchi was outstanding however last time it was not quite as good. Service was excellent as always. Corkage at $10 per bottle is a little steep when only 2 people are drinking.

This place has been our favourite for over a decade. Our Place manages to keep a modern menu while sticking to their roots as a cosy local gem.

I've been dining at Our Place for a long time, and the owner has always impressed me with his impromptu sense of fun and repartee. The food is consistently good, and it's reasonably priced. If you want less noise, go after 7.00pm after the kiddies have gone home.

Fantastic Xmas in July dinner. Had originally booked just a normal night but was later rung up by Marco as they were going to make it another Xmas in July night due to popular demand. We were offered the choice of rebooking but were happy to stay with our night and the special meal. And boy are we glad we did. A party of 8 we had a wonderful night. The food was superb and plenty of it. I loved the second helpings that were offered - just like a real Christmas dinner!. Sean our waiter did an amazing job. He was funny as and super attentive. We have eaten here before as a group and had a great time with great food. The special theme lifted this even higher. Thanks to Marco, Seanand all the staff at Our Place. You will be seeing us again that's for sure!

Its always great food at 'Our Place' but more than that are the friendly staff and cosy atmosphere, which together make the perfect combination for a night out with old friends.
