This restaurant has very good food, friendly service, but the ambient/environment and location is a negative. Dinner at week day is an experience, is such a big restaurant that have not many patrons ... so feels a bit out of source.

I called restaurant for table availability - they were busy, but said they could accommodate 5 people. On arrival, we waited on the lounge and chose the wine. Our table was ready in 10 minutes. After sitting at the table for quite a while, the waitress finally took our drink order, then we had to ask for the menu. When... More

It was David Byrne of Talking Heads fame who wrote the song "Life in Wartime". The well known line "This ain't no party, this ain't no disco,this ain't no fooling around" came to me whilst dining at Sprout last night. We have dined their before and the food is universally good. As it was last night. One quibble, the coffees... More

My wife decided to take me here for my birthday. We had heard some good things about Sprout and they were not wrong. I love going somewhere and where chefs have thought about the dish and the flavours meld together, this is what we found in our dishes. Even though you pay a bit more for the food, the meals...

My husband and I first noticed this restaurant a couple of years ago and it changed venues and we kept missing it but now it has found a home upstairs at the Crown & Anchor hotel on Hunter Street. It is a lovely bright room with a high ceiling and plenty of space. I had the duck entree followed by... More
