In all fairness we did only come for a drink, but the three staff that were on were incredibly rude, No hello or anything just asked us what we'd like. When my cocktail was ready it was shoved at me so it spily over slightly by the bartender saying "this yours?" And we felt like we were being judged as... More

I quite like this place at the end of Colombo Street, sitting at the corner of a busy roundabout. It is a mixture of sports bar and restaurant, with high tables and chairs, big TV screen(s), also normal restaurant tables and sheltered outdoor seating. A bit dark inside. The selection of cakes for an afternoon coffee is minimal. We often... More

We enjoyed a brilliant evening - party of 7 - with just one other small group dining at the same time as we were. 7:30 on a Saturday evening. I was surprise the restaurant was not busier. The food was truly delicious. Between us we ordered 4 different mains with 3 of us choosing the twice cooked pork belly. This... More

A group of us went for dinner to protocol ( previously elevate). Very good food and all round a good night. I had blue cod which was very good. Only down side is it's quite noisy in the restaurant - tends to echo. Other than this definitely worth a visit with good food and service.

First visit since this restaurant became Protocol some months ago. Never a regular haunt but in our hood and always served good food. Happy to report this has not changed. Tonight we had a steak and a simply divine cervena main. Beautiful presentation, very tasty and reasonable portion sizes. Wine is not cheap - $11.50 to $13 a glass and... More

We were a group of 4 who booked a Saturday night out for dinner. Easily managed to get a a reservation. The place is in our area so we were excited to see what the new Protocol management was like. We left disappointed in regards to the ambiance and food. The service however was prompt and friendly. The restaurant was... More

Now called Protocol, nice to have a restaurant close to home but really they are trying to be to fancy! Just serve up normal good tasty food! Weird to had a $36 steak on the menu of a place you can go to and wear track pants! For the price you would also expect amazing service but below average is... More

We wanted somewhere on a Monday night that for a good meal to celebrate a family birthday. So seven of us arrived at Protocol on a cold night and had a fantastic 3 course meal, with attentive, professional service and excellent food that everyone enjoyed. Highly recommend this place - we're lucky it's so nearby.
