Dining Bar
Our bar and kitchen focus on serving up big flavours, profiling the excellent brewers, winemakers and producers that Australia has to offer. Our food has a Peruvian hand but takes influence from everything, and is best shared with good friends and a good beer. The bar has a small selection of craft beers, wines and cocktails on rotation, and we sometimes brew a little beer ourselves.

Walk-ins welcome! We always keep a few tables free.

Great bar with helpful staff and good food. We always bring friends here when they come visit from out of town, and the staff are super accommodating every time. Highly recommend the kangaroo reuben!

Great menu choice. Great food, awesome service. Loved the shared plates!!
Plenty of drinks to chose from.
Music wasn’t loud so you could talk without yelling.
Something unusual on every wall to look at.
We will be back to try other menu delights and drinks.
Keep it up!!🥃

Service and settings was so nice but the food is pretty average. It was nice, but most dishes lacked flavour and took a while to come out even though it was pretty quiet when we went. Just kinda bland. Drinks and service were so lovely though :)

Awesome food, a great range of drinks and a wonderful group of staff who just topped off a wonderful meal before the footy.
We just got a range of starters to share as a group and it was amazing quality and full of flavour. Would recommend to anyone!

I usually find leave reviews but wow, your staff are rude and innatentive. Got the strangest look when I asked for cutlery and napkins of which I was only given one to ?share for the whole table so had to insist i ok n more which the guy wasn’t happy about. Same deal when getting water. Couldn’t see that it was self serve? Nor were we told it was when we sar snd I assume it isn’t? Most of your staff were just crowded around the front bar chatting and didn’t want too intrude on that but we needed cutlery so...
Really disappointed with this experience. Also you need to put way less sauce on your loaded fries it ended up purely tasting like tomato sauce and mustard.
