    Food was outstanding. We had the premium feasting banquet and there was not a bad dish across the 12 plates that were served. Great that you don’t have to travel into the city to experience a restaurant like this!

    The food is always exceptional and service is generally fantastic however last night it took over 30 minutes before we had a menu which is not normally the case. Once our waitress was assigned she was wonderful she catered for two of our party with allergies and the kitchen staff also ensured the food was suitable for them. We dine here regularly so the hiccup in the beginning we can overlook.

    Do yourself a favour and get down to The Arsonist. Have been several times and it absolutely never disappoints on food, service, atmosphere - this is a fine tuned operation and I'd challenge you to find it otherwise.

    The Arsonist is hands down one of the best restaurants we have ever been to. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted with a warm and inviting atmosphere. The food at The Arsonist is truly exceptional. Each dish is carefully crafted with the freshest ingredients and bursting with flavor. The menu offers a variety and the desserts are decadent. The staff are friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable about the menu. They go above and beyond to ensure that your dining experience is nothing short of perfect. Overall, I cannot recommend The Arsonist enough. Whether you are looking for a romantic date night spot or a place to celebrate a special occasion, this restaurant is sure to impress. We will definitely be returning in the future.

    My wife and I went for our anniversary, something a bit more upmarket than where we would usually go. Got one of the shorter feast meals. Quality of food and service was excellent. Was quiet when we went as we had to book early on a Sunday afternoon as all night dinner times were booked out. Food was beautifully presented, cooked well, great flavours and came out at reasonable times for each course. Overall a slight bit much food for my wife but I thoroughly enjoyed it all, the volume was okay, but I certainly did not go away hungry.
