The food was very delicious, especially the entree which were the scallops. The beef sirloin was very tender and juicy. While, the pork belly was full of flavour and aroma.

In addition, the environment was very nice and relaxing.

Staff are friendly, prices reasonable, ambiance magnificent, food almost perfect. Calamares too salty, but other than that, our family night was remarkable!!

Delicious food. Didnt have our first choice of the shared rib eye but steaks were delicious. We shared the 3 desserts and the unanimous favourite was the chocolate mousse. Definitely would return and recommend.

Our server was very friendly and attentive explaining the menu to us and what specials were available. The dining area was pleasant with enough space between us and the next table. The menu was concise and there was something for everyone. We started with the pate which was lovely and smooth with a lovely homemade pickle which cut through the richness of the pate. The special was steak on mushroom.puree with broccolini which came cooked as requested which is no mean feat in the day and age. The sous vide pork belly was also very tasty with the bed of lentils and carrots. Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert but great service and good food.

It was a great Summer evening, we enjoyed a glass or two of Rose in the dappled sunlight in the courtyard and then dined inside. Very nice and efficient waitstaff. The pate and arincini risotto balls were delicious, followed by a huge portion of fish and chips and the shared steak dish which was wonderful. Too full for desert - great evening and a highly recommended venue.

We visited the Commons for family dinner first time. We ordered 4 entree and 4 mains, and 2 deserts for 4 of us. The entrees were calamari, arancini, scallop. All nice and tasty. The mains were Lamb, chicken, market fish. All mains were also nice, but portion was small for the price except chicken. Especially fish (snapper) cooked beautifully but portion was very small. We had bread & dip for share. Nice breads and interesting dips. The desserts were cheese cake which was strawberry the day, and chocolate mousse. Both were tasty and good portion for share. We want to come back again.

The four of us had a lovely evening at The Commons. As we were arriving early we had a drink in the Garden Terrace next door and were lucky they had Happy Hour.
Our meals were all excellent - Fish of the Day and Chicken. Despite it was only the second working day of our waiter, he answered our questions professionally, albeit some of them after consulting the more experienced staff. High marks to him!
All in all we highly recommend a First Table at The Commons and we will be back again.
