    Service was relatively quick and ordering is easy with tablet at your table. Food was good but most meals did come out barely warm and slightly on the dearer side for what it is but it’s worth it for the cocktail menu and the overall vibe of the venue which is great. The live music was fantastic. Only feedback would be the booking process for us, it was incredibly difficult to get hold of the venue for a group booking.

    Had my first experience at The Cambus Wallace last night and it was such a good experience! We will definitely be back! I had the Salmon dish and I never wanted it too end! My partner ordered Scotch Fillet Steak at medium rare and it was cooked perfectly! The variety of cocktails were delicious and the vibe was just right, it wasnt too loud and the music playing made for such a chill vibe! We will see you lovely people again soon!

    The drink selection is outstanding in the cocktail and spirit genres. 3 tap beers and fridge selection compliments the range enough. The food is very tasty from a select menu but still a nice variety. Its the ambience and the staff knowledge that make this place special, well done...

    We went for my husband's birthday and had a great evening. The ambiance is unique, the blues band were top quality (and you could still hear), the bar guy's were friendly and efficient, and there were quite a few people in there for a Wednesday night which led to a fun atmosphere. We'll definitely go again on a weekend night to see how that goes too 🥳

    Moody dark quirky bar in Miami, awesome old school music like The Doors. Great food, maybe a couple more shared options would be welcomed. Would be awesome if it was open to the street as we're in Qld after all.....will revisit again.
