We feature a rotating selection of the best local brewers on tap, and classics by the bottle.

We love coming to Tonic and have been a customers for the last 15 years. We are vegetarians and was disappointed when the chef refused to substitute the pork dish on the set menu for another item. We would have ended up spending more money.

Hi, thank you for your review and your long term patronage (2010 was the year we opened). In regards to this issue with the course substitution, the kitchen understood that your table only wanted to swap the pork belly for a second round of the scallops and this was what chef refused. Whether this was a miscommunication somewhere I do apologise. We would have happily changed the menu for a full vegetarian adjustment to the 3 of the 5 dishes that have meat or fish to alternate vegetarian dishes.

We felt a little too close to the few other patrons who were there and would Hege preferred more space between our table and the next, considering there were many empty tables available.

Great share meal that leaves you wanting more, I highly recommended the aracini balls, they're my favorite. The service was good and there were plenty of cocktails to choose from. I'll definitely go back again. I thought the music could have been turned up a touch but it added a nice ambience to the celebration.

It’s a great place with great tapas but drinks are now much smaller at same price which is disappointing. But I guess relates to COVID-19
