    We had a delicious meal, the grilled sole and gnocchi were excellent and the crepes melted in our mouths. A wonderful dining experience. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great night.

    I really enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of The Waiters. The staff and are friendly and the service is quick. I've never been disappointed in any meal I've had there. It is the restaurant we got to with a group of friends.

    The restaurant was very noisy and very crowded. It is very popular. Some tables were too close together, with little room to move. Food quality was good but amount for price was not. I was here a number of years ago and loved it that is why I came back. I will not be back.

    As visitors from Perth we were told about The Waiters - a must visit - by friends who have children in Melbourne. Being great fans of our 'local', Ginos's in Fremantle, we were keen to compare and were not disappointed. However, at Gino's you get a wine glass which I think always makes for an even better experience.
