It's really not a review of the restaurant because we never went there. I would not recommend it after today's experience. They rang two hours before our confirmed reservation through Open Table to saying they weren't open on Mondays. However their website advertises 7 day trading...... Pretty poor really!!! We were lucky to get a reservation at Uncle in St... More

We enjoyed lunch in a group of four. The food exceeded expectations - the pulled pork and hand cut chips were excellent, as was the wine list. Service was friendly, slow at times but very genuine. For a casual lunch, highly recommended

Rose Diner is the magical living room you wish you had. So, if you don't have that place, you'll love Rose. Stopped in with friends after a yoga retreat, and found the staff (Paul) and ambiance like a long time friend. Totally worthy of a return visit 🎉👍🏻🍸

We came here on a Groupon deal and had the 3 course dinner with wine. Was really pleasantly surprised by the quality and presentation of the courses. Both the duck and salmon mains were excellent. The pavlova passion fruit dessert was beautifully presented and refreshingly yum. At the end of the meal, we were very pleased and concluded that we... More

Booked for Sunday lunch at Little Rose Diner. When we arrived they had no record of our reservation however it wasn't busy so we were seated outside on a beautiful sunny day. Menus took about 10 minutes to appear. Ordered o/j and a latte to start. Other people came and went. At least half an hour before our order was... More

Bought a Groupon with the usual expectations but we were really surprised with how great everything was! The place itself was quaint and personal with a nicely restored Art Deco interior. The service was spot on, our two hosts were very attentive indeed. The food was delicious!!! The entrees, mains and dessert ALL perfect. We will be back for sure,... More

We visited Little Rose today for brunch. They were so busy, and very informative of how long the order would take, which we were grateful for. Their milkshake and deluxe milkshakes are delicious. We had avo lux and the breakfast burrito. Both were very yummy and I would highly recommend visiting this cafe!
