We had a large platter of pork belly, small platter of salmon, garlic bread, olives, chips & aioli, a beer and a glass of wine. All dishes were prepared to a high... More

This is our second visit and it was just as awesome as the first time! We love this type of food. Fresh combinations of modern food. The kids are a little challenged by this food, but our 11 year old tried some new things and lived them. Fries and garlic bread for the little 6 year old. Great vibe on... More

Think I had the last free table, they were taking a wait list after I sat down, lucky me! I chose the Low Rider beer as I was driving. Tasted lush. Had whipped goats cheese with beetroot/rhubarb relish and rosemary cristini. Also 🐷 had halloumi salad. Desserts were sounding divine but yummy couldn't cope! Maybe another day!

We had dinner here over the Easter long weekend. The food was nice - we had the chicken & roasted cauliflower for small fishes and the fish & beef shin for big dishes, I'd highly recommend the beef shins, they were delicious! The only let down is that they're right next to a pub/ club where the music is pumping... More

Atticus Finch was created for your enjoyment in mind! The Atticus Finch team turns dining into more than just a meal - Where you can linger over lively conversation, playful plates and thoughtful concoctions.

Our food is fresh, innovative, flavoursome and made from scratch. The beverage menu showcases inspired selections of local craft beer, wine by the glass and seasonally crafted cocktails made with our own syrups, fresh fruit and herbs. Simply put, Atticus Finch is a great place to gather with friends and enjoy the best pours and plates in town. Drink with us, Dine with us, Share with us.
