Cuisine: A La Carte, Grill, Share Plates
Price Point: Mains from $20 - $35+

An intimate eatery with a big heart, Monkey Farm is the sort of place everyone wishes they had in their ’hood.

Comfy chairs pulled up beside a cosy fire and an enormous beer garden filled with squishy bean bags mean this spot works as well in winter as it does in summer. Whatever the season, a homely feel, cold beer and tasty, home cooked food are guaranteed.

Menus are small but perfectly formed, with a selection of small plates, comforting pasta and mouthwatering meat dishes fresh from the grill.

We reckon you can’t go wrong starting with the spinach and ricotta wontons before sinking your teeth into a flintstone steak with onion rings, fries, slaw and your choice of sauce.

Whet your whistle with a selection of bottled and tap beers or perhaps an ice cold Peroni on tap, as well as refreshing serves such as Spiced Whiskey, Pimms and local wines. Iced chocolate milk finished with whipped cream and marshmallows is sure to keep little monkeys quiet too!

Reviews

Delicious food shared in a great atmosphere with very friendly and attentive service. Shared plates and gourmet burgers were attractively served and very tasty. One of our party had the Squid salad as a main and rated it the best salad he has ever had. We were well satisfied with the first two courses and reluctantly couldn't fit in a dessert. A very good range of local beers and wines. Staff more than happy to pack up any left overs which came back to us in enviro-friendly containers. Can well recommend - we will definitely return. Thank you Monkey Farm team.

The food was tasty, the service was friendly and the restaurant was warm & cozy. It was a nice place to hang out with my family and friends. We went again the following night and for breakfast a few days later.

Love this restaurant with the very spacious setting and relaxing decor. The service is top notch with very friendly staff that are not over the top with invading your meal out but keeping an eye out in case you need anything. The food is just fantastic especially the squid for me and the lamb for my husband. We were really impressed that when asked how our evening was I mentioned how great everything was but one of their toilets needed some attention and the manager himself was straight onto it. That shows to me a real team behind providing a great service for our enjoyment. Well done guys we will be back.

Service was quick, and friendly. Food was reasonably basic but well made. I would recommend giving their chicken parmigiana a try!

The food was very tasty and the presentation was equally lovely. The servings generous and great service - attentive but not intrusive. A nice venue Our only minor issue was that a number of the dishes on the menu weren’t available as they had run out. Aside from that absolutely no complaints and would definitely return and recommend.

Great service as always, steak was a tad dry and was surprised to see they had increased the price on the meal, considering the meal had become a lot smaller

We had dinner as a family at Monkey Farm on Sunday night. The service was great, as soon as we were seated we were brought felts and colouring pages for our 2.5yr old and given a great amount of time to order. The lovely waitress told us about their Happy Hour which I wasn't aware of and I had a lovely glass of Sommersby Apple Cider which was delicious (even more so being cheaper!)

We ordered a range of the sharing plates rather than a main each and the food was hit and miss. The pork wontons were lovely and came with a great beetroot sauce and aioli and the sliders were perfect little mouthfuls of burger. The salt and pepper squid wasn't fried well and was still quite watery unfortunately and the fried chicken was bland and tasteless, although cooked well.

The ambience of the restaurant is lovely, my husband hadn't been before and really liked the setup and layout. Overall a good meal out considering the good service, the total price we paid for a family dinner for 3 (under $40!) and getting dinner over and done with in under an hour without feeling rushed.
