Lovely food and atmosphere. A bit pricey. Only problem is they have limited if any vegetarian dishes. The ravioli was a highlight but they removed from the menu?

Paper Moon on previous visits has been outstanding but today it was less than memorable. Table service was abysmal, food was disappointing. When ordering a salad I don't expect the ratio of salads to meat to be 90% salad greens and 10% meat smothered in...dressing. A very disappointing lunch overall.More

If you read my other reviews you'll see that I'm not the complaining type. People rave about this place and it's always one of the best-populated places locally. But we have never found the food to be particularly great and we have never enjoyed anything...but bland service. We stopped going altogether but twice recently friends asked to meet us there and frankly nothing was different. Equally good or better food and friendlier service are available elsewhere.More

I was quite disappointed. There were no plant based/ vegan meal Choices. The gnocchi was painfully salty. The waitresses spent half the time standing in a corner chatting rather than checking on the needs of patrons. Our water was not topped up. I waited nearly...10 min trying to get my server’s attention. The restaurant was far from busy or understaffed. But the menu seemed good, the presentation of the food was excellent. We enjoyed our chocolate bomb dessert. But Im not rushing back.More

The food was good and the service to the table was also ok but we were told at 8.55.pm that we had 5 mins to order desert before the kitchen closed, then were told they would start sweeping/cleaning the area around us and then we...were told at 9.30pm that they were closing! What restaurant closes at 9.30pm on a Saturday night! There were 2 other tables of people still drinking who were also a bit outraged that we were being rushed off our table and out the door. Very disappointing when the food had been good and we had been having a nice evening as two couples catching up. It was like the young people left in charge had a party to get to!More

My husband and I went here for dinner. The service was good. We got one starter which came out in two halves instead of one which was a bit disappointing. We both had the pork belly which was lovely, but very small. The side of...vegetables was small as well, so, unfortunately, my Husband left hungry which was concerning considering we spent close on $100. One thing worth mentioning is that I saw a waiter eating with his hands while waiting at the service counter to collect food. He was scoffing so that he could work as well. Not good hygiene practice. This had deterred us from returningMore

Pleasant room, welcoming excellent service and simply good food, well prepared . Delicious duck leg special and fillet steak were our choices. We feel lucky to have such a good restaurant producing really delicious food, so close to us. Recommended. Maybe offer a couple of...new wine specials..?More

Myself and 5 friends went to Papermoon last week for dinner. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the food was amazingly delicious. Just a shame at 8.45pm a female staff member started washing the floors while we were still there we found that...a little off putting.More

Paper Moon has always had consistent good service and hospitality. This morning was no exception. However when we went to sit outside on the higher stools I noticed bird droppings on the seat back. No problem, just swap it out for another unused one, unfortunately...every one was the same. So just don't lean back. Then we noticed the table we were at was also sticky. Time for a bit more attention to cleaning might be in order. Coffee was nice and service friendly.More

Stopped in for lunch with the family. Best. Decision. Ever. The quality of food way surpassed our expectations. The prices were reasonable and the service good. Highly recommend.

It is legal, but I think it’s socially unacceptable. It spoils the ambience for everyone else.
