Service was fantastic, meals were very disappointing. Gnocchi was bland, salty, gluggy and full of large slabs of lamb was fat. Chorizo pizza had so much chilli on it that it was actually inedible. Not great value for money. Minimum spend per person was $55 per head. We sent 2 meals back and received a $5 discount. Only saving grace was the desert. The Creme Brûlée was delicious.

Service was really good! But the food was just ok. The seafood linguine was disappointing, pork belly was dry... it’s not easy to get out for dinner so unsure if we would go back

The physical menus are damaged and dirty and need to be replaced
The physical appearance of a menu is like an introduction and in this case not a good one

I was stuck in traffic in the way there and rang them to cancel. They very kindly reorganized my booking and then had a most delightful evening with wonderful company.

Recommend very highly and they deserve kudos for going above and beyond to ensure I had a great Valentine’s Day.

We booked a late lunch. I could see the kitchen unfortunately. There was a very lazy chef who kept wiping his nose on a tea towel. He was also texting. One half of our meal sat waiting to be delivered for over 5 minutes. Unfortunately it was the calamari and chips - these things cannot sit and wait. Finally, while we were still eating, they started preparing the room for the dinner service, discussing where things were going to be placed. Not nice.

We booked The Girl & Bull for my son's 18th birthday. The food was divine, the service was perfect in terms of timing between courses and the atmosphere is really up-beat. Special mention to Katrina who really looked after us and made it a special and memorable evening. Will be back again.

The food could not be faulted, it was delicious. It was very loud, however to be expected considering the place was full of patrons. Service was great considering how busy the place was. This was our second visit and I would certainly recommend it highly.

Ordered a bottle of Chardonnay. It was not cold but the girl who served us told it would cool down in the ice bucket...

Asked the gentleman next to us if his beer was cold...He said JUST..

Need to turn up the refrigeration to keep your clients.

My husband & I love our ‘date nights’, & G&B is the perfect place to have a beautiful meal with great service & an exceptional wine & cocktail list!
The menu is diverse as you can choose to have tapas or entree & main meal with gorgeous desserts, if you have room!
The mains are generous in portion size & we enjoyed every mouthful.
Thank you Mikaila, Adam & staff for your ever consistent food & service!
Always a pleasure to return!

Great meal and service so close to home. The only criticism I have is that it would be great if more vegetarian options were included on the menu. The only main was a pasta dish which was not appealing. Otherwise, terrific. Will definitely be coming again.

We don't usually go out for dinner as it can be quote pricey, but this was a special occasion. Was worth every cent! The interior was inviting with mood lighting and the staff were very friendly. The food was amazing!! with so many option and very accommodating for someone who is Coeliac . We will definitely be back.

This was a first date venue for us. Very relaxed, great service and excellent food. A little noisy but this didn't detract from a good night.
