    A fantastic Mother's Day lunch at Stella's. A set menu but with several choices including vegetarian options. The serving sizes were generous and the food tasty and liked by all 6 of us. The service was exceptional considering how many diners were present. Friendly and not rushing us at all. I can highly recommend this place for any occasion

    No sign on the website or on text or email communication that there was a mothers day set lunch. Pretty disappointing as the food was definitely your standard "what can we churn out really quickly to guests" no proper thought into this, just a little all over the place. Chicken with Gravy and mash... really?!?! Shocking!

    The service was terrible. It took ages to be served, waiters were standing around doing nothing while our table was ready to be cleared for 10 mins, we were asked if we were waiting for food 5 times during service, the waiter came back 3 times to check the order. It was like the waiters had been plucked off of the street and asked to work for the day. The food was completely overpriced. $65 a head for cold arancini, gnocchi with Napoletana sauce, and a small chocolate fondant.

    Booked a table for 8.15pm and we’re rushed from the time we arrived. Shortly after placing our order and before commencing our entree we were told desert would not be available as they were closing the kitchen. A waitress asked if we were ready for mains before we had even finished our entree. During our main we were asked if we would be wanting tea or coffee as the kitchen was closing….. Very disappointed and will not eat here again.

    Birthday lunch with a friend on my recommendation…my friends lunch was awful.she had gnocchi and it was swimming in sauce…not very nice.I was totally embarrassed. She should not have been charged for her meal. Have been there for breakfast recently and was lovely that’s why I suggested to come here.

    Great location and very helpful staff - helped us move our party of 7 outside without fuss. Service was excellent. A bit noisy inside. Some meals were great but the seafood platters were overcooked and, because small pieces of squid, whitebait and octopus were used, much of the for was too crispy. Also, there was salt sprinkled over the whole platter, including the salad.

    Love Stella. Service is always fabulous, the host is welcoming. Food was ok, has been better on other occasions. Could have just been the item I had as the other meals looked amazing. Won’t put me off going back of course. Brekky is always a winner and the location is perfect.

    Had a window seat inside- not many people on Sat lunch which was perfect for us. Good menu: we had platter and pate and bottle of bubbles. Platter was a little expensive $65) for what was on it - a lot of filler foods - chips, salad and bread and not much of anything else. The pate dish was the opposite, a large block of pate… so the balance could have been much better. We may have had a better food result if we ordered a mains each…not sure. Excellent service except for one waiter who tried to hurry us in ordering - I could understand if they were busy but they had very few for the entire time we were there and when I booked there was no time limits. The waitress however made us feel very welcome and comfortable and was very accommodating. So for a lazy relaxing Sat arvo with girlfriend overall we had a lovely time.

    While the overall experience was good just a few things were missing like cutlery when our main meal was served. We had to ask for this and also water was not offered to us. Small but important things. Some of the staff seemed very young and inexperienced.

    Disappointing . The waitresses didn’t have any knowledge of the menu, contents of particular dishes, and no interest in the customer or their job. Disappointing. It was the wrong thing to do to go to the toilet before I ate!… the back area including the kitchen area was absolutely filthy. Not just disappointing but disgusting. The food was ok, but, what was a really great restaurant with a stunning position is now very low class. Disappointing.

    Had the lamb shoulder, meat was braised and reformed into a cube. Even though it fell apart the meat was quite chewy. Highlight was the polenta , but did not justify the price of $32. Wine was also very expensive $13 a glass Partner had a burger at $26 which she enjoyed. Very noisy, but service was good

    The outside seating is great to enjoy the square. My barramundi was overdone and dry unfortunately. The toilet area and access corridors are in need of a makeover. Very tired and grubby. Front of house was good.

    Valentines Day - understand it’s probably the busiest night of the year, but…booking was stuffed up, table service was abysmally slow, had to continually ask where our food was, waiting staff appeared overwhelmed, didn’t ask if we wanted drinks (apart from when we first sat down), kitchen clearly couldn’t cope with the number of meals to be produced. And they were packing up the tables and chairs around us as we ate - overall poor. The maître de was nice though.. Couldn’t recommend this restaurant to anyone based on our experience this night.
