After being stuck at home for ISO the past 2ish + months, our family of 3 decided to eat out the first opportunity we got. The food was well priced and delicious but in all honesty there was far too much food for me to eat. We shared the junk fries and cauliflower for entree. Then the mains came. The pork and fennel lasagne for me was divine (wish I had the recipe) but I only ate about 3/4 of it as I was too full.

Female waitress was very blunt and not friendly. We were seated directly in the sun. We asked to move to free table out of Sun and was made to feel like it was a big deal.

Great food but being asked to leave our table soon as there was another booking soon was a bit rude and unexpected. Nowhere on our booking did it advise we were supposed to be out at a certain time and I had only just been served my desert 5 minutes earlier.

Wonderful local eatery. Great variety and well cooked meals. The Angus Rib Eye melted in your mouth and was cooked perfectly. The pizzas have some great toppings and hamburgers are delicious.

Great pizzas, but inattentive service, noisy venue, and the varnish on the tables is sticky and unpleasant to touch,

Service erratic, offered water at the end of our meal after we had ordered coffee.
Cold coffee with no flavour, more like a glass of partly frothy milk.

First ever visit and not disappointed. Great spot to take friends to enjoy a very healthy breakfast spread catering for special dietary needs. The ambiance was peaceful so we could catch up without noise competing with our voices. Loved the enormous pizza oven...we look forward to returning to experience this next time.

We had a family lunch (ten of us) - and all I can say is - the food was really REALLY good! Impressive presentation and delicious! We thought it might be a little expensive for what it was - however when it came out - the quality was exceptional. We will definitely be back for more!

I booked a table for six and requested a quiet area. There was no table fir six reserved and we were placed in a noisy area.
The lamb pizza was very dry. Suggest drizzling a garlic sauce on top.
The Collective is our local and we go there regularly. It was just a little disappointing

This was the first time that l had been at this restaurant and l absolutely recommend it. The meal was delicious , the service was friendly as soon as you walk through the door. Did not have to wait long for meals, very professional and the beer was ice cold. I rate this restaurant 5 stars. You will not be disappointed.

Was a good night but the Only thing I can say bad was the jambalaya was definitely not great or what I expected! it didn’t taste anything like a jambalaya and it was more a cross between a gumbo/ jambalaya!

Food was ok.. I had a pizza it was good .
We where sat in front of the kitchen entry on arrival. We asked to be moved as noise level from kitchen was loud. I think that that table should not even exist. The service was only the delivery of food to the table as you ordered your own at the bar , otherwise all was good.

Staff were lovely. It was very cold inside and we had to keep our jackets and scarves on. The chicken wings were amazing but I had a chicken burger and it was burned. It still tasted ok but there wasn't much chicken inside the burned bun and burned seasoning.

Food was lovely which was the saving factor. The restaurant is styled nicely but was cold - couldn’t take my jacket off as I sat in an air conditioners breeze, on an already cold night. Service was basic - order your own food at the bar, collect your own water. No one came to our table unless it was to bring food and collect our dirty plates. No one offered dessert menu / coffee after our meal. Burger came out in a ‘diner style’ basket which was unexpected considering it cost $35. Very underwhelming ‘family’ vibe which was conflicting with the ‘cocktail bar’ tag on Facebook.
