Always such a wonderful and consistent experience at Glasines. The staff are fabulous and so is the food. I've never had a meal there that was not absolutely delicious. If you haven't dined here yet, you're missing out.

As out of towners, the restaurant was easy to find and it had a pleasant atmosphere.....would probably be a bit more noisy if we'd dined later though. Our waitress was also running the bar, so she did well to juggle. The wait was a little excessive, but thankfully well worth waiting for. The steak meals were lovely and my kids enjoyed their meal too. Thanks for a nice meal out.

This small local diner is a gem we have been here a couple of times and haven’t gone past the great Southland rib-eye steaks with plentiful awesome sauce and Fab sides.
The service was also friendly and helpful so pleased to have this little gem in our neighbourhood.

Nice food, but unfortunately experience was a bit soured by other customers who were quite rowdy and intoxicated at the bar. On weekend nights it's expected but at 7pm on a weeknight, you don't expect drunk customers approaching you and loudly commenting during the meal. It's a pity, as staff and food were quite nice.

Yet another incredible experience at Glasines. This place is seriously underrated! Amazing portion sizes and the flavours in my steak meal were phenomenal. I always have a well done steak so most cuts usually get a bit tough with the amount of cooking done. Well this was the first time i have had a lovely charred well done steak that was tender and juicy. One of the best steaks i have ever had, and i am suuuper fussy so that’s saying something!!

We dined at Glasines Café and Bar last night. The service was top and we were treated like all there other guests even though we were there with a voucher from First Table. The meal was beautifully presented, Steak cooked to our requirement and the mushroom sauce was so very tasty. We would recommend this venue and will definitely be dining there again. Well done guys.

Best Regards and Happy Eating,

We both had a steak meal and they were definitely tender big steak meals. There was plenty of delicious creamy mushroom sauce in fact next time will ask for less sauce. No problem delivering a GF meal. The service was very relaxed. Definitely be visiting to try another steak meal.

Glasines was a surprising and super enjoyable experience! The service was amazing, they even let us come earlier as we had another commitment afterwards and Matt was very welcoming and attentive to our needs. The food was lovely and even made to our liking, we both had bacon and mushroom carbonara with chicken as well as bread and spreads on the side. The portions were perfect and the taste was the best we've had in a while! We will definitely be back! The place was clean and tidy and buzzing with other dinners... Thanks for an enjoyable evening!

Thank you everyone at Glasines that made this experience wonderful.

Meals were lovely, we had drinks then ordered a chicken burger, beef burger and two steak meals. Steak was tender and cooked to our requests. Burger eaters were fussy and had requests for exclusion of items and that was followed.
I was hesitant to choose Glasines as I thought of it more of a cafe/bar with pokie machines being more of a highlight than the food but was pleasantly rewarded with delicious food and competent service. I will return.

They do a good steak here. Well cooked, with a generous amount of sauce and mushrooms and BACON. It was a very good plate of food. Casual surrounds, friendly service. It's a shame this place isn't better known for its food. Thanks, will definitely be back!

We are first time diners at Glasines Cafe & Bar. What a great meal we had. Steak egg chips and salad. It was huge. My husband cannot eat cucumber and was delighted in the way that his request was handled. They made him a special salad with no questions asked. We finished with a well made coffee and would have no hesitation in telling our friends to eat at this restaurant. Well done Glasines and you will see us again. I might add that my steak was so big I couldn't finish it.

Took myself and my mum out for tea. We don't go out all that much and to be honest i wasn't expecting a huge amount. We got ourselves some cob bread and spreads for starter and mum got the Pork roast and i got the Garlic Ribeye with bacon. It probably ranks on the top 5 meals out we have ever had! And the steak was the best i have had in town by far. Cooked exactly the way i wanted and tender as can be. The serving sizes were massive and we basically had to roll ourselves out the door! Service was friendly and efficient, will be back again for sure. Thanks so much!
