Incredible! Cannot fault anything. Staff went above and beyond for us. I had some requests (organised surprises) for my parnters birthday and staff pulled it all off without a hitch and were more than willing to accommodate. The food was amazing and was brought out promptly. Staff ensured we always had drinks and were friendly and helpful.

Second visit to Shorehouse, and was not disappointed. We ordered the "Feed Me" $59 tapas special. Food was excellent, however we would recommend that the main course be delivered in two drops, as we couldn't eat all the food fast enough before it went cold. Great atmosphere, and terrific location on the Strand.

Loved it, great food and service. Chose to do the “just feed me”, what an excellent selection of foods from the menu to taste and good portion sizes! Highly recommend, Only things to improve was fresh plates for each course and server to pour/top up wine.
Can’t wait to be back with friends and family,

First time to dine at this restaurant and this will be our to go place now. Ambiance is good, love the decors and basket lights. The staff are very friendly and the food came fast. The foods are excellent especially the pork belly bao and chicken dumplings. The bandit chicken wings and chicken larb is too salty for my taste but overall experinced was superb. The wine selections are good. The villa marie pinot gris is the best pairing of the food we ordered for our lunch. Cannot wait to come back again after 2 weeks.

desert I wanted was sold out. For set menu night the kitchen could have been fully prepped or possibly pre book deserts to go with chefs menu. We love the surprise Monday nights. Good to see the place so busy on a Monday night with a fresh idea

Service was terrible. They brought out our meals 25 minutes apart. I will not be going back. They recommended the chicken dumplings; I was not impressed. For the price of the meals, it was not worth it.

As always shore house did not disappoint, great food and service.
I think that the portion sizing has gotten noticeably smaller making value for money border line almost not worth it.

We had the feed me meal and it was awesome. Starter, mains and desert. Yum. The restaurant is light and airy and the staff were friendly and helpful. Even though there were large groups of girlies on the terrace the expected squawking didn't reach us and we could hold a conversation without shouting. We had to book 2 weeks in advance which shows how popular it is. We will be back.

Ambience determines return custom just as much as the other deliverables.

The food at shorehouse is exceptional. It felt rushed this time, I've been many times and this was the first time that I felt we needed to go. We ordered, scallops (superb), fungi spring rolls (delicious, the dipping sauce awesone), pork dumplings (yuumm), fried rice, delicious, kapoaut chicken ( moist and lovely, probably only dish that didn't quite measure up. But we were finished in 37 mins! I'll be back though 😀

Food was too rushed. We had an 8pm table and couldn't seat us until 815. we were told that the kitchen was closing 9pm so had to order quickly. All the food came out at the same time. Very dissapointing for a $120 per head meal
