                                      The Lost Dice gives off a cozy and wholesome vibe- it was a delight to hold our weekly DnD game there. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the food was delicious. We will definitely be coming back.

                                      We thoroughly enjoyed our booking at The Lost Dice, the food and drinks service was very good and the ability to play both new and favourite games was great fun.

                                      A great little place to play games. The food was delicious (I had the homemade pie & sticky date pudding) and cocktails perfectly made (espresso martini & negroni) and the atmosphere was of a lot of people enjoying games with their friends! The only drawback to the place is the small tables - you have room either to eat or play board games, not really both at the same time. Though if you are playing card based games its perfectly fine.

                                      Very thematic Boardgame Cafe with very friendly staff. The food was great and served promptly. The owner even dropped by to ask about the game we were playing and answered some questions about game mechanics. We will be visiting again on our next trip to Adelaide

                                      Was not told that the kitchen was to close early due to the cook being tired until it was too late to order food for one of our group, which was disappointing. We were told at 8am that kitchen was closed but website said it closed at 8:45. One of our group had ordered a starter with the intention to order a main later in the evening but was too late as kitchen closed early.

                                      I think a lot of 5 star reviews are handed out too easy these days, but Lost Dice is top end of 5 stars. Easy to book, great atmosphere and the staff are next level. We got assistance setting up board games and our large party was well looked after. Our group will book in again later in the year for another catch up.

                                      The food was delicious, John was helpful in explaining our game of choice and we didn't feel rushed to leave after we completed our game.

                                      Had a really enjoyable evening. Staff were super helpful and patiently taught us how to play a game new to all of us. Good selection of games. Food was good: Pulled pork bun was tasty and my salad was fresh with a nice dressing. Good selection of drinks, including a locally breed nonalcoholic beer, which was pretty good. Only one minor suggestion: maybe a higher barrier between the booths as, when you are next to another group, you are all head height and very close, and it gets a bit distracting and impact's on the conversation. Will definitely go back to try more games. Had a really fun evening!

                                      The main lady who served us was amazing! So thoughtful and attentive. The QR ordering is the only thing I think needs changing- it’s cumbersome and often doesn’t work. Apart from that, The Lost Dice is great!

                                      Such a cool place. A quiet little building with an inviting atmosphere. Service was very prompt and the staff were very nice and approachable. Good selection of games. Limited menu items but it’s largely focused on games anyway. Would definitely recommend and will be returning again!

                                      pretty bland I had the chicken pie with no flavour. Service was very slow waited nearly 30 mins to get our drinks and nearly an hour for the food. chips were cold and again not salt bland. They said they were having trouble with the wifi so maybe that is why it was so slow. The tables are quite small we had to move tables to play the game. suggestion ask for a bigger table. We would go back and try it again as it's a great concept I just think they were having a few hassles the day we were there.
