Was recommended by a new friend. It didn't disappoint so we went back over the weekend. Food was great and well presented with good oration sizes. Coffee was excellent.

We have just had one of the worse meals ever at The Aarli. Three out of four were shockes. We told the staff and there was no response other than i am sorry. No offer to reimburse totally not interested. Will never return.

Delicious hamburger for lunch. The flavors were magnificent, lots of salad included in the burger. No chips accompanied the burger (as in many places ) but the amount of food was enough without. Lovely setting under the frangipani trees and in the shade on a warm day.

Worst rip off breakfast ever; washed down with a cold coffee. My poached eggs on toast (or should I say burnt cardboard) were disgusting. Had to ask for butter, salt and pepper to make it barely edible. Coffee was in a tiny cup and cold. Needless to say would never go back.

It was very pricey for the amount of food we received had to order 4 mains for two adults. Left hungry and a dent in our savings but they were very tasty.

Overpriced considering very small portions. Avoid the lamb if you've an appetite! Otherwise food tastes reasonable - nothing special given higher end prices.

We had the tasting plates and really enjoyed the pork belly buns, coffin bay oysters, green beans and deep fried squid. Followed by tapioca pudding which was divine, Subtle and beautiful

We ate here last evening. Surprisingly good food. We had taste plates. Well priced and generous serves.Chicken dumpling were a hit. Fast service with attentive and polite waiters. Lovely spot despite a wet evening, outside under the beautiful frangipani tree. Not noisy. Could easily hold a conversation. I thought the wine list overpriced. I wish restaurants would allow BYO if... More

Had a lovely meal at The Aarli last night. Fusion of Asian tastes. Limited Vegetarian options. Waiting staff were a bit rushed & limited knowledge of the wine list. Lighting of the outside area too could do with a little attention.

The food at the Aarli is really good, if a bit expensive, but the service is woeful. We waiting ages for our drinks order to come and even longer (possibly an hour) for our food to arrive - and that was after questioning where both the food and drink were. They said there'd been a glitch with the computer. We... More
