    Food was outstanding however the service on arrival was quiet poor and one of the ladies was rather rude asking why we had sat where we were sitting assuming we had just walked in where as one of the other staff had sat us down. Probably should have checked before approaching us being quiet rude! They had forgotten one of our drinks so had to get up about 20minutes after ordering and check on this and they advised that it had already gone out which it hadn’t. The food however made up for the poor service it was amazing and the green smoothie when it eventually came out was incredible. I would recommend this place it is reasonably priced for the quality of food you receive. The atmosphere is also quiet nice light and bright.

    Monica's Eatery has the makings of a great restaurant, but the meals didn't come together very well for us. Our steak was meant to be medium-rare, but was well-done...but we couldn't be bothered sending it back. The fish was cooked well but super salty. For the prices we paid, I would expect a sensational eating experience. The best aspect was the gin cocktails!

    Enjoyed our dinning experience, with a menu that had something for everyone. The food was delicious and would certainly go again.

    I guess my only criticism is the wait after being seated. It's nice to be welcomed in and given water but, if it wasn't for the maitre d catching my expectant eye each time a waiter walked past, I think we would have been waiting much longer. I'm glad I ordered 2 coffees straight away after that. Our drinks arrived quickly and distracted us from the wait for our meals...which were both interesting and well presented. Thanks for catering to us with little notice :)

    Usually love this place. I booked for lunch on a Thursday and when we arrived it was full to the brim and it all looked a little chaotic. When we sat down to breakfast menus I asked to see the lunch menus and was told that because they had been so busy the chef hadn’t had time to prep for lunch so there wouldn’t be any and it would only be breakfast. So we left not very happy customers!

    Great food and atmosphere. Was super busy so took a little longer to get menus and water to our table, but totally understandable.
