Lovely staff, great cocktails and their cinnamon donut is amazing. Definitely a place to re-revist time and time again.
Amazing food and cocktails, our waiter was so nice and accomodating. Can’t wait to go back
Food was great last course was not as good as the others
Amazing food & drink, catered to our dietary needs with no issue and such great service!! Thank you!!
Absolutely amazing food and drinks, as well as the most beautiful staff
Could not speak more highly of the experience my friends and I had at Recess for my bottomless birthday lunch. The staff were outstanding both friendly and helpful, always ensuring we had a fresh cocktail in hand!! The rooftop location was also great - thank you Recess!
Also love going to Recess!! Had never had cocktails there before but they were amazing!!!!
Delicious food on the "Feed me" option. Cocktails were divine. Great service. Will be back for sure.
Place was very efficient, service attentive and food interesting and delicious. Duck was a little dry. Lots of local wines to choose so didn't have to supplement the SA, WA or QLD economies.
Great food and service was just as good . No delays on drinks or food being served and extremely nice staff
Amazing food, amazing cocktails and even more amazing service.
Caters for varying needs - gluten free, vegan etc - with enjoyable dishes
The ambience was great considering the restrictions on number of diners at the moment. Couldn't fault the food or drink - we did the 2 hour bottomless brunch option which was $80 per person for 5 courses and unlimited cocktails/drinks, which we thought was great value. Thank you!
Beautifully presented and delicious food and drinks! Excellent service and great vibe to venue. Have been raving about it to everyone since, I will definitely return!
Loved every bit of the experience, best range of cocktails and food
Amazing food and service as always. Despite the restaurant being subject to covid, the atmosphere was cozy and lovely. The service was great - we were constantly asked if we wanted any more drinks as well as given some tips regarding the menu.
Recess Bar & Eats has exceptional food and great ambience! Absolutely stunning every time!
Perfect selection of share plates for varied tastes. Cocktails are expensive but delicious and worth one treat. Staff very pleasant and informative.
Lovely vibe, delicious food, lovely attentive staff
Great service with attentive servers! Food came out at a good time and space between each meal.
Food was really yummy perfect portion sizes.
Absolutely delicious food. We were 6 people so needed to order the chef's pick however it was so good to try so many dishes I wouldn't normally have picked. Gluten free food and you wouldn't even know it was gluten free.
Fun day, nice food and cocktails. Will be back :)
For our first night out, it was the perfect spot on the roof top. Awesome food and service. Not to mention the best cocktails for miles
Delicious Food & Amazing Cocktails
The Bottomless Lunch was Fantastic & can't wait to do it again
Great selection of drinks, excellent service & menu options to cater for all dietary requirements
Impeccable customer service, delicious cocktails, food not quite at it’s usual fabulousness but super attentive to allergies - so appreciated! Definitely recommend and will be back!
Great food delivered quickly to our table by attentive and enthusiastic staff. The whole experience was amazing and we will be back again soon!
Love going to Recess Bar and Eats, the food and service is always amazing.
Amazing food and service, every dish was as great as the next.
Went with a group of friends and we literally couldn’t believe how good the service was. All of the servers were so kind and friendly. We got the chefs special where food was brought out to us and everything was incredible. Good vegetarian options as well. Could not fault it. We’ll be back!!
Will 100% be back. Table service was immaculate as we were never waiting to get another drink; always great timing. Food was so delicious and looked like art on a plate. Thanks guys!
The last 2 dishes weren’t great but overall we had a good day
One of my favourite places to eat and drink cocktails!
Great, professional service, beautifully presented and tasty food, delicious cocktails.
A fully gluten-free restaurant is such a buzz. You don’t have to search through the menu to find something you can eat. But the beauty of Recess is your gluten loving friends won’t know the difference or care because the food tastes so good. They’ve some new dishes on the menu, two of which we tried along with my personal favourite, the fried chicken. All were exceptional. The service was great, the price is always good and it was a great first night out from Lockdown 2.0.
Always super lovely. If I could give them more stars, I would.
Wonderful cocktails in a relaxed, intimate atmosphere. Nice selection of tapas/share plates.
As always great food, service and a wonderful place to catch up with friends. The new menu is fantastic with a great choice of flavour sensations!
Delicious gluten free food (hard to come by) and the service was amazing!
Great food and atmosphere, can’t recommend enough. We eat and drink here all the time, not once have they disappointed.
