Comfort Food
A place that feels like home.. I don't mean that in a sense that the place is covered in dog hair, the tv is blaring, the kids are screaming and there's lego all over the floor; more in a sense that you feel welcomed, content and at home from the minute you enter, right up until you leave. We wanted to create a place, that I myself, would want to visit on a regular basis. A place where your name is more important to us than your money is. A place where you feel like a regular from your first visit. A place where you feel like a part of our family. A place you felt you've been before. A place that feels like home.... Ok, so we have fancy wine glasses, twinkling candles, nice chairs and really shiny cutlery, but don't let that fool you... We're humble, both in our service and in our food, and pretentiousness and oversized egos were banished from the premises the day we started trading. We like looking the part, but life's too short for airs and graces...

    Fantastic service and outstanding service from the team at The Kitchen - we went for dinner and followed up with breakfast coffees the next day. Food was excellent - the vongole linguini as good as the reviews suggested and the barramundi the real deal, good superbly. For some decadence, we had the cheesy garlic bread - oh my! That was excellent. Good range of wines/local beers by the glass on tap and ambience with the fire going just what we wanted on a cool Satuarday night in Winter

    Extremely slow service even Beers took 20mins to arrive, ordered 3 Barramundi's which which were extra salty, kitchen didn't bother to inform us for any last orders before closing for lunch. Extremely unlikely that we would visit again.

    Busy - public holiday. Service great. Food was good. Bit noisy but added to ambience. When the weather is good the outside area is really nice to sit at also. Terrific place for our area.

    A big table for 7 of us. Dishes are fresh and hot., panfried fish is exceptionally cooked. It only takes us 19 mins from Arthur Seat Lookout to The Kitchen. Service was remarkable too.

    Good food. Friendly service but a bit inexperienced. Wine list not great, no moscatos at all. We’ll come back and try different dishes. Barramundi undercooked for my liking.

    Fabulous service and atmosphere. Very cosy and hearty meals. Highly recommended for relaxing evening out. Kid friendly. Should be nice to have more local wines on the beverages list.
