The 4 (2 adults and two very hungry teens) of us all had the “Feed me” option on the menu. The food came out quick, was beautifully presented and most of all very tasty! The mushroom arancini were some of the best arancini I’ve ever had. There was plenty of food over the course of the whole meal. The service was very attentive, water constantly being topped up, food quality being checked. Would definitely recommend this spot for anyone that loves food.read more

The waiters were very professional and attentive, very good service. The food is very tasty, I recommend the brie baked in pastry and the arancini balls, also they have a great cider called Margot.

Friendly staff, good wine selection, great good. A little expensive, but worth it! Menu changes (although I'm not sure when) which is a nice surprise if you visit infrequently

Haven't tried the food yet but the zucchini fries smell fab. Great bar, great service. A very European feel to the place.

Been many times and the thing that worries me is value for money. It's a bit rough to charge $18 for a glad of wine that is pretty average. The crowd favorites of zucchini fries and zucchini flowers are awesome but there doesn't seem to be anything looking to take their place. Something that goes with Pinot maybe.

Nice and cosy venue. Food was delicious. We had the tasting share menu. A lot of food. The drunken chicken rolls were definitely the best! As for service this was very poor. Very disorganised. Asked for a bottle of wine and was brought a glass over twice, and that took too way too long and then two bottles arrived. Again waited too long when we ordered another bottle. The time between some of the course was also too long. Just seemed like people kept forgetting. Apart from that the venue is good. I would go back for the food as long as I wasn’t in a rush!read more

We have been meaning to go to Firefly for a while now and wish we hadn’t waited so long. Everything was great, atmosphere, food and friendly service. Try the Bao buns they are awesome 😎

The shared banquet was absolutely incredible - I asked for vegetarian options and they were absolutely amazing. The famous zucchini fries live up to their name, and my favourite course was the mushroom arancini

That’s the perfect wine bar! Been once but will definitely go there many more times. The atmosphere is amazing, the food is very delicious and wine is great selection. I tried the Shiraz Grenache and the red organic house wine - they were fantastic. All of the food is made to share, even the stakes. For food I would highly recommend the zucchini fries and the unconventional gnocchi. Yum! The the waiters are very kind and nice. :)read more

Great food, average service. On the two occasions we've been for dinner, we've been left waiting for half an hour or longer for any staff member to approach us to order even a drink, let alone take our food orders. Once we ordered drinks it was another long wait for them to come back to order the food. Just unnecessarily slow overall. The restaurant wasn't even half full??read more

Great place to meet up with friends! The food is fantastic and they have a good selection of drinks. They do switch out the menu regularly so if you loved the crab sliders they might not be there then next time you come!

Haven't been here for well over a year but have to say it's still just as good as I remember it. Delicious sharing plates. Mostly boutique beers and plenty of wine options. Parking is almost a waste of time so catch a cab. Very cosy venue.

Food was very good but service average. Booked a table for dinner but found we were seated at the bar in front of the drink service where the waiters kept having to lean over us to pick up drinks. They wouldn't move us and we were stuck there all night (maybe that was something they could have mentioned when we booked that no tables were available?)read more
