I would have given the restaurant a 5 star except that the wait staff seemed to be covering so many tables they only made it back to us once in an hour. We came at 5 pm and ordered the wine special and when someone finally returned after our initial round of wines she said happy hour ended 5 minutes... More

The menu provided a variety of tasty options so I couldn't resist the lemongrass and coconut chicken and a chargrilled lamb with lemon, feta, yoghurt & hummus. The servings were plentiful and quick to arrive.

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. The vibe of Atticus Finch is speakeasy meets metropolitan bistro. Our house was made for entertaining - situated in the middle of "Eat Streat", taking advantage of the geothermal under floor heating of the concrete outside, retractable awning and covered walkway. Our dining menu is designed to share, a combination of carefully selected ingredients that allow a series of tastes to be passed around and enjoyed together. 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.
