We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal here. The man waiting on us was extremely patient considering we were indecisive and a bit tipsy! He was really helpful and recommended a cheaper wine than the one we were going to chose, which is always a good sign! The starters were very tasty, particularly the halloumi wrapped in bacon. For our main meal, we ordered the twice cooked pork belly, and the beef medallions, both delicious. The desserts were equally scrummy, the honeycomb cheesecake was a real hit, and we decided the chocolate truffles were the best we'd ever tasted! We will definitely be returning!

The green and clean drink is a really refreshing start to the day. The Balmain East breaky is tasty with fresh grains, asparagus and greens. The big breaky is big!

I visited Our Place for the first time with a friend last Saturday. I enjoyed my meal: a nice rustic chicken and mushroom pate for starter, and the duck ragu pappardelle for main. Went well with the light Tassie pinot noir we'd brought with us.

My friend wasn't so lucky: the zucchini flowers were tasty, but she would have preferred them served warm. Her main was a salmon fillet, which was a generous size, but past its use-by date. She didn't finish it.

The staff were friendly, but the kitchen was having problems coping with a busy Saturday night. Our entrees came out quickly (because they were cold), but the wait for the mains was a bit long.

My friend would give 2 points, and I'll give 3.5. I've averaged it out to 3.

First visit to Our Place on Darling & we couldn't fault it. We had tempura zucchini flowers followed by 3 different beef dishes which were all delicious. The espetada (beef skewer) with red wine sauce, chips & salad was mouth-wateringly tender & tasty, a completely satisfying dish. The staff were great, the atmosphere was buzzy, it is byo if you want to and the prices are really reasonable. Couldn't fault it :-)

Warm welcome. Ordered lamb and espedatta (beef) . The kitchen was slow and when the food came the beef was tough and tasteless. The lamb was a small portion and fatty. Disappointed as there were great reviews. Think the kitchen was under too much pressure. Not a great night out.
