We went to this wine bar after having a meal at 'Galangal Thai Cuisine' which is literally a couple shops down. This wine bar is just right in terms of size being not too large so it's intimate and great for drinks with a small group. The decor and lighting are perfect in making you feel like you were in...

Always wanted to give this little restaurant a try, so on Grand Final day decided to pop in for lunch, dare I say it was very quiet. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere and decor inside was really interesting and very cool. The tapas was fresh and full of flavor, we had Cod fish fingers, Beetroot salad, Chicken...

Lovely cozy setting, decent service and quality of food is fairly high. Cocktails were very good. Problem is price are very high and serving sizes are very small even in comparison to other boutique similar venues (where prices are the same but serving sizes are literally 2~3 times this venue). We had 4 or 5 dishes and every one of... More

We tried it because of the offer in the entertainment book and I was nicely surprised. It's got a real Canadian feel with moose heads on the wall, fire place, chesterfield lounges etc. I love the tapas style food but if you like eating a lot of food it would be quite expensive. The staff were helpful although the wine... More

We sat down for dinner at the Cabin and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. The waitresses were very attentive and had a good knowledge of the food and wine menus. When we saw the menu we loved the amount of variation we had to choose from and when our dishes came out, we... More

We went based on a recommendation and had the Wednesday night winter warmer deal. We sat basically right next to another table of 2 so it was like we were at the one table and when I ordered the special the guy said to me I'll warn you its a little underwhelming...I figured I'd see for myself! He was right...it... More

Came here with my girlfriends for tapas and cocktails. Initially, the service was so slow to non existent; however, it did pick up and became more attentive in the end. We shared a variety of tapas, which included the braised lamb nachos (tasty but needed more sour cream), quail breast kievs (delicious!), house cured meat board (tasty but very little... More

This is our favourite place to eat out, love the food, drinks and the setting. The staff are always happy to make my favourite cocktail - Aviation- even though it's not on the menu anymore, I really appreciate that! One of our all time fav foods on the menu is the quail breast kievs, and the pate is always a... More

Been meaning to try this place for a while after many recommendations - and it was great! Started off with drinks and ended up having dinner there. Tasty sharing plates and a cool atmosphere. Will definitely go again.

The Cabin is particularly nice in winter. With its cosy interior it is very inviting with a variety of seating choices, mood lighting, decor and general feeling of warmth. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We took their recommendation on choice of beers and it was delicious. The food was mixed. I wasn't a huge fan of their pickles... More
