Food was very good and the outlook is gorgeous it’s tucked away so very quaint. Staff were very friendly and helped us when our table was too much in the sun to give us another one without fuss. Will definitely be back

We love Double Barrell and appreciate everything about it esp since we live at The Concourse. Owners are friendly, food is delicious, staff are friendly and dogs welcome.

I have always wanted to visit from the amazing food I would see online.

My sister and I recently dropped in for Sunday brunch.

Had a lovely table on the deck, food was wonderful, staff were friendly and attentive.

We had our waters topped up regularly and we felt relaxed as staff seemed happy to have everyone stay and enjoy themselves unlike some restaurants that hustle you out as soon as you finish eating.

Would go back and woukd definately recommend.

We love coming to Double Barrel to enjoy the great service, quality food and lovely food presentation.
Sadly, during this visit these things were all not up to their usual standard. Hoping for better things next time we dine.

We watched multiple people be served prior to us and we had been waiting for over 20mins. Food was cold.
Coffee was average. We had booked a table but we were still positioned in between two very loud tables when there were so many others available.
Extremely poor service. Overall extremely disappointing.
No apologies from staff for them forgetting about us while we waited so long to even be offered for our drink order to be placed.

Very unlikely we will return.

We were well looked after.
The service was friendly and efficient. The food was tasty. The coffee hot.
This place is covid safe and has a high turn over reflecting how good they are.
We were able to sit for some time without feeling the need to move on.

We had a lovely lunch on Easter Sunday at Double Barrell.
The food was delicious as always (never had a bad meal here), the service was friendly and efficient, meals and drinks were delivered quickly, couldn't have been a better place for our Easter lunch.

the waiter who mainly served our table was pleasant, but the other staff just plain dismissive, with one waiter walking away while my sister was still in the process of giving her coffee order. all it would have taken was a waiter saying “i will send someone over to take your order”. we understand how hospitality works and staff being delegated tables, but it seemed very understaffed for how many diners there were. so before anybody starts abusing staff, i would look at supporting them with putting more on and training them better.

Went for Sunday lunch and have dined there often. Service from seating onwards uninteresting and void. Had to wave for attention just to get a drink let alone order food,..need to have noticeable manger in charge to direct things ...not like on weekday dining.

Staff were very friendly and helpful but the service was slow. Perhaps they were short staffed that day. Steak wasn’t cooked correctly but credit to the manager who gave a discount to compensate. Wind was blowing strongly but they didn’t close the doors for the comfort of patrons but rather left them open seemingly to allow staff to serve the outside area more easily. The menu and prices were different to the menu and prices shown on OpenTable - this is the main thing that needs to be fixed, otherwise it borders on deceptive advertising.

The location is great, pleasant view over the little lake. The service was very good, the wait staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. I had read the reviews and everyone was rating this 4 to 5 stars so I was expecting a really good meal. We ordered our mains and were really disappointed and underwhelmed. I had the Caesar salad with grilled prawns as an extra for $10 and my sister had the bug fettuccini. The salad came deconstructed and there seemed to be a lot of lettuce and the serve of the bug fettuccini was very small for a main. Both meals tasted nice enough but no wow factor. At $38 and $39 we were expecting a bit more. We shared a very nice dessert which was the chocolate brownie which I’m glad we ordered as it was nice to end on a positive. 2 glasses of wine, 2 mains, 1 dessert , a tea and a coffee for $120. Wouldn’t have minded paying that if the mains had not been so disappointing.
