    Tucked away in The Rocks, this is a modern restaurant to dine in for their small plates to share. Great vibe

    If you don't have a reservation you can sit on the patio in the bar area. The put a board on a little table. A bit awkward, but the food is worth it.

    "can we order some wine?" "Oh, I'll come back for the wine." 25 min later, stop other waitress; order cab sav and Tempranillo; 5 min later "was that a Chardonnay?";10 min later bring Sav Blanc. WUT?

    So disappointed- we asked for a medium steak it was overcooked, and the manager tried to argue with us about our order. I won't be going back!

    Possibly the best scotch fillet I've ever eaten, the beans were perfectly cooked. Everything was delicious and the service impeccable. Highly recommended.

    Desserts are the go and must choose the fresh Mango Roulade and the Dark Chocolate Tart!

    On weekdays in October, get a set main course, a matched glass of Brown Brothers wine, Coopers beer or San Pellegrino sparkling or Acqua Panna still mineral water, plus coffee, for just $38.

    Make sure you book or be prepared to wait. Ever a favourite Pony's menu changes with a regularity that keeps even the locals interested. Good wine list-go buy the bottle and the beef cheek is gold

    The food is always amazing, wood fire oven locks in all the juices of the fish and meats. Staff friendly and helpful. Great vibe, schmick & classy but not arrogant and still relaxed. Impressive.
