Staff way, way too busy - took an hour for our meals to arrive. Despite this the food was enjoyable, but the overall experience wasn't what we're used to. Coffee was excellent though. Hope it was a one-off due to being so, so busy.

                                                                My girlfriend and I went to Two Before Ten Aranda & 10 Yards on a Friday night for dinner. We shared the cured meats and cheese to start and then shared the confit chicken Maryland and the mushroom ragout. For dessert we shared the bread and butter pudding with ice cream and butterscotch sauce. The meals were fabulous. We enjoyed them. Each was prepared and cooked well. The chicken was fall from the bones tender and the skin was perfect. We loved the beans and sauna sage. Having the mushroom ragout with it was a nice pairing. My girlfriend also had a glass of wine and a glass of beer which were to her liking. My only problem is personal, I suffer from tinnitus and the noise levels were quite high making it difficult for me to enjoy conversation. I think fellow tinnitus sufferers would experience the same problem which is not unique to this restaurant. Knowing the produce used is fresh and local makes up for any inconvenience 😊

Calamari didn’t appear to be cooked properly either. Very unimpressed and unfortunately we won’t be going again. We spent over $200 for 5 people, including drinks so it was very disappointing. We all wondered if the chef was off sick and they had someone else cooking the meals!!

The poached eggs were cooked to perfection and the sourdough toast was delicious. The coffee is good. Many of the vegetables used come from their own gardens which surround the building. It is fairly noisy inside but not outside in the garden.

The garden environment is outstanding as are the staff and the food often coming fresh from their own gardens.

After I complained we were offered a complimentary drink while we continued to wait but no apology or discount on food ordered. Food is always good, but not happy with the service,

The lass who served us, was very attentive, helpful with my friends gluten free diet options, and my second cup of coffee was nice and hot as requested. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. I attended with my husband a couple of weeks ago and had similar service. Well done!
