It's a. Wet cool place with a great combination of drinks and Tapas. The mood is very cool and the Bar Staff are very clever and they all have a great attitude, as it really comes through. It's a great place if you take someone out on a first date, or you have been married for 20years. It's refreshing and... More

Love this little place in Chirn Park, the staff are very friendly and service is excellent. The tapas and cocktails are delicious, its a great place to stop by with friends on an evening. You can sit outside on benches or inside and it has a nice relaxed vibe. Only disappointed that I'm no longer walking distance away.

Great little Bar/Restaurant..very busy for a Thursday night but our table of 4 had terrific service from the first over the phone booking to being greated on arrival to attentive service throughout the night. We choose share plates and everything we ordered was delicious and was delivered to our table within 30 minutes and was well worth a 4 star... More

I have been here many times since i used to live very close, and now that I have moved to another suburb, I still continue to come back. My partner and I perched ourselves at the bar last night and ordered some tapas and which ever cocktails they were making. They made us a Tim tam cocktail, amoung others, which... More

Tonic is a quaint little bar with funky art on the wall and is nicely decorated. My food wasn't anything special, some tasty Vegeterian/vegan dishes would be nice. Get a little creative 😊 especially for the prices.

Service, cocktails, atmosphere and food are all exceptional. Staff are friendly and it's easy to tell they enjoy their job, The menu is great. Only small problem was when we went they were very busy with everyone ordering cocktails that had to wait for drinks. Not the staffs fault but shows how popular it is.

This is a nice little local find, easy and relaxed - although quite noisy. Service was good. We ordered tapas and were told by the waiter that 'they come out pretty quickly' so easy to order more if we needed it. Tapas sounded good on the menu, came out quickly as promised, and presentation was great. It was disappointing that... More
