Such a lovely interior, a mix of modern and cozy. Our food was good, the calamari we had for starters was a bit salty but so soft and tender. As heads we had pear pizza and beef Wellington (special) which were both tasty. A great arrange of cocktails and drinks as well. Service with a smile, some staff still pretty green but that's alright. Good price/ quality. Will definitely return .

This was our third visit to the girl and the bull. We felt the food had improved from our previous visits, thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was great and awesome being able to BYO on a Thursday evening.

Suberb service, suberb food, good ambience. Rib eye steak was to die for. Thoroughly recommended and will certainly revisit.

Very noisy. Given it was a 5:30pm reservation and it wasn’t busy, they should have sat us the opposite side to the bar. As it was, there was only a slat divider between the bar and us and we found it hard to hear one another. This was a disappointing experience as we normally really enjoy the restaurant.

I’d heard a lot about this place so was looking to trying it out. The menu was amazing, so much choice, I couldn’t decide what to have! My fiancé and I shared the saganaki and spiced pork for entree. The pork was generous in size but dry and tough. Saganaki was also dry and chewy. I had pork belly for main, it was also dry and not much crackling on top, what was crispy was too tough to cut off. My fiancé had beef cheeks and thought they were very bland. The atmosphere was nice, the staff were lovely and very friendly, great wine list with lots of Peninsula products. So overall just s shame the food was very average. I wouldn’t go back as there’s far too many options on the Peninsula, especially if you’re local.

Decor was trendy and stylish. Service was first class. Food was interesting and tasty but portions were on the small size, despite not being large eaters. Pricing was reasonable. We enjoyed our night at The Girl & The Bull.

Have eaten here a few times and have always been pleased with the quality of the food, the friendly service and the atmosphere. The food is fresh and innovative, well cooked and beautifully presented. I had the Tuna and it was very good, seared on the outside and pink in the middle just as it should be. We shared a few small plates and they were delicious. We will certainly return.

Thought the place was quite nice. Good variety on the menu, although a touch expensive, but they have a small serves section (which I really liked). Dessert was delicious, although because they were really busy, there was a bit of a wait. Probably could have done with more staff. The only downside from my point of view, it became very noisy, otherwise, liked the place

The stuffed zucchini flowers are to be enjoyed lingeringly - you don't want to actually finish them, ever. Great menu options suitable for a range of dietary loves and needs. Service was fabulous, never needed to flag anyone down because wait staff were preemptive. Ready to work my way through the menu!

There is a great variety to choose from on the menu. We loved our starters, mains and dessert. Everything was fresh and a generous portion. The saganaki had a sweet spin and was delicious! The host was friendly and energetic. The place was packed on a Saturday night and we could see why.

Girl and Bull was great - food was very good and the oysters were awesome, wine was nice but a bit better choice at the top end would have attracted us a little more, service was OK - needed reminders a couple of times and there was some confusion about bread - overall a good night out for the four of us - noise level seemed very high; maybe we are too old!

Love this restaurant, food is awesome, team is great and always have a fabulous time. Unfortunately after booking online and receiving confirmation (which I've done before), on arrival my booking didn't exist and we were turned away.
Saturday night, birthday celebration, wasn't ideal. Won't stop me returning, but next time I'll call for booking, as on this occasion it was a let down.

I wanted to give 0 stars, as I wasn't there, but the system only allows for a minimum of 1.
