Enjoyed a lovely meal with fantastic service and good selection of refreshments. Do not recommend going there for a quiet dinner though.

I really do love this place. I was a little disappointed with the Stuffed olives that we ordered as they had changed their receipt from our last visit and were not as pleasent. The truffle Pate was Excellent!
I was a little disappointed in the fact that when I booked I requested normal seating as I recently had Back surgery and got given a place on a stool. Other than that all else was good!

Everything was great but your app directed me to a different location, about 3 or 4 Km away from the actual location.

Can’t go wrong with a $15 ribs/ steak deal! Loved the atmosphere and the live music, service was great and there was a really good vibe for a Wednesday without being too crowded. Loved it, thank you.

What a wonderfully quirky little bar and restaurant! Friendly staff, whiskey Wednesday specials were awesome ( we had the ribs but comments by the other diners about their meals were just as good), and the place has a nautical / prohibition feel about it.
What a great little escape.

Great vibe and attentive staff. Good that there were vegan options but the food wasn’t very good considering the cost. Great venue otherwise

Awesome themed bar, great food, but just let itself on the night - our opentable booking for a standard table was changed into sitting at the bar, the special (whiskey wings) was already out of stock by the time we got there at 7:30, and both courses took 30 minutes to arrive. Still recommend it, but probably victims of their own success!

Hi Jon, we're really sorry that you had this experience. We are a small local business that prides very much in our service and hate that you didn't enjoy the night as much as you should have! We did have an unexpected demand for ribs on Wednesday but the other two specials we offer were in stock - including the $15 sirloin and $10 Arancini. I'm sorry that you were at the bar for 10 mins while waiting for your table but I assure you that you did get the table you were booked for after that.

So sorry you were underwhelmed by our service; it's something that we take alot of pride in! We train our staff regularly, so we can only hope this was a one off. As you can see by other reviewers, our service is normally top notch! Hopefully we'll see you again to give you some of the hospitality that we are well known for.

I booked The Cambus Wallace to try one particular kind of rum, but I'll be back for so many more reasons.

Fantastic rum menu, meals were delish, atmosphere was awesome and all the staff were great. Might become the new local, thanks team.

Great food, an excellent choice of beers and spirits that have been turned into unique cocktails. Fast service with attentive staff and the James Street preachers playing live on a Wednesday night topped it all off as not only a great speak easy style bar experience, but an overall great venue to come have dinner, drinks or both. The menu is limited in such a way that you know that anything you order is going to be done to perfection.

Not to take anything away from the outstanding overall experience, it would be preferred if dinner plates were cleared only after everyone has finished (only 4 at my table on a quiet Sunday night).
Cannot thank our Uber driver enough for the recommendation.

Ambience and interior is great. Live music playing. Quite busy and vibrant. Drinks menu is good. Food was just average. Want to try the vegan menu. Probably would not recommend the food (unless the vegan food is good) but great place for a drink and some live music

Great vibe, great cocktails and food. The service was friendly. Cambus Wallace has a great atmosphere and they know what they're doing with cocktails, they also have an excellent beer selection. It was good to see locals popping in for a drink at the bar after work.
