Last night we had some food at Fig restaurant. The staff were nice and friendly. However the food was a disappointment. We had two nice entrée Dumplings and Ceviche, surprisingly the ceviche was served with nachos from the supermarket.After we did order the main dishes and the waitress said: the vegetarian curry will take 30 minutes to be prepared which we agreed.When the mains arrived to the table, firstly the meet portion suppose to be 220gr but the sizes were smaller than that and poorly accompanied.Secondly the vegetarian curry was small portion as well, in fact it was dry and tasted like flour and poorly presented, we certainly could not finish the dish.The desserts were average but coffees were good. Sadly we would not came back again, or recommended to anyone.

The service and food were amazing! The staff were absolutely lovely. For entree we had the homemade garlic ficelle which was very tasty and enough for two people. For mains we had steaks with sides. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the sauces tasted amazing. Dessert we had the chocolate marguise and the butterscotch creme brûlée. Both were extremely delicious. Overall we had a wonderful time, the service and food were 10/10

As per our other visits, food (salmon, chicken and curry) were perfectly cooked and the service was excellent. The staff were very helpful to accommodate our last minute change in the number of people due to family members visiting us and also the request of a cushion and a special dietary requirement.
Lovely ambience and would definitely go back again!

Having dined at Fig previously I knew I was going to enjoy my meal. The menfolk both had steaks and they were not disappointed. The ladies had chicken breast and although it was a little on the luke warm side it was delicious. My only real disappointment was the dessert. It was Crème Brulee which was lovely but for the warm coulis that was on top of the sugar. Of course it didn't crunch like it should because it had started to soften with the heat.

Another First Table experience. We have dined here before. New Menus are small and very clear. We were excited as they sounded so good. Unfortunately it stopped there. We had the popular chicken salad and the Indian curry. Both were tasteless. No sauce with the curry and no spices. Very dissapointed. The dessert was the best of the whole experience. Good service.

My Mother used to work at The Elms in the 80's so I thought it'd be a good place to go for dinner. Hoping for great food and nostalgia, we weren't disappointed!

Friendly wait staff, good delicious sounding menu items, good service and well presented and good tasting food!

We'll be back :)

We had a FANTASTIC experience! The food was top notch as always and the staff superb. Minimal waiting time, we were very well looked after by all the staff but Trish was our main waitress and NOTHING was a bother. I casually mentioned it was my partner's birthday so we were celebrating a special night out. Before we ordered dessert, out came a waiter with a plate on which were a couple of yummy chocolate brownies with candles lit on top and a "Happy Birthday" message written in chocolate (by the chef) on the plate! Thanks to FIG for a most enjoyable evening. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

One of a number of visits as diners – each time with different companions.
I must say that we experienced amazing service from a petite but very bubbly waitress. From the moment that we arrived, this young women was so positive and helpful and we couldn’t ask or expect more. I feel that she may have been of Indian origin, very easy to understand and if I was her manager, I would give her a raise and try to retain her for her outstanding service quality. We eat out a lot and this lady is a standout.
We all shared an entree of pork belly which was very tasty and we finished smacking our lips – a great start.
For mains I ordered a chicken curry , a generous servicing and no complaints there.
My better half had a well cooked Monkfish dish with Rosotto , too much risotto perhaps and made for a small imbalance to the dish. Our guest enjoyed a lamb shank which was well cooked and said to be very enjoyable- so he left well satisfied.
With no room left for dessert, we decided to leave desserts for another Day.
A number of features should be mentioned including good car parking off the road.
Also the restaurant has several areas – we dined at the far end away from the bars and it was so nice to be able to enjoy conversation without straining to hear. That makes for an enjoyable meal and occasion.
We will be back again with friends to introduce to the Fig Restaurant.

My friends and I had a great meal and the waiter and waitress were very attentive, happy and helpful, even though it was very busy. We will definitely be going back there again and I will try the duck leg next time as one of my friends had it really enjoyed it. Having said that I would recommend the sticky beef ribs.
