A great night in at The Cambus Wallace. The ambiance is very cool, the music chilled, the service expert and fast, and the food delicious and good value. My mate commented that we could have been in a bar anywhere in the world - Athens, Chicago or Rio, and when you can’t travel - that’s a great thing. 10/10

I had thought this was going to be more relaxed and a bit more upmarket. Menu also very limited.
Overall just ok.

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!

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.

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.
