Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We ate our way through most of the menu as were a group of 8, everything was exceptional with standouts being the pork dumplings, fried rice, sticky lamb, bbq fish and the oliebollen. Exceptional service and great wine list, we’ll be back thanks for a...great family dinner!More

My favourite lunch venue when visiting from Auckland. Never disappoints. Food, beverages and service are five star.

Fab food, husband liked the beer selection as well. Couldn't fault anything (had oysters, small and large plates, and desert).

Extremely tasty food .the pot stickers were outstanding ,chinese ribs were good .Nice buzzy atmosphere with very good service .Would have been good to have some craft beers on tap rather than in cans . Its certainly popular so you need to book .

Delicious food, great service. Nice that they often have the option of oysters. The sharing situation is fun, and the variety they have in their dishes is also very good.

Friendly staff, cool setting and delicious food. Had the boots and all rib-eye that was perfectly cooked. Have been here many times before and the food is consistently great.

What an excellent restaurant! The Cook gives everything on the menu his own special twist, wanting you to try everything on the menu. The cook (Koen) appeared to be Dutch; so you can for example order 'oliebollen' as a desert... Koen made something very special...out of it. Yummie! Thank you all the staff of WBC for this marvellous food adventure!More

So blown away by amazing food and a gorgeous atmosphere and the service was top notch. Loved the small plates as well as the sticky lamb and the burnt cheesecake was absolutely devine.

Our waiter for the night welcomed us us warmly and offered to take coats and bags. Great start! WBC is one of those special restaurants that you know of through word of mouth, hidden upstairs on that stretch of Victoria St opposite World. We love...it for it's seafood dishes, but last night we dined with friends and chose an exceptional beef fillet, bone in, to share, along with a few tasty small plates. Our waiter was up-beat and attentive, the atmosphere buzzy but intimate. And the desserts were, as one of our group exclaimed, the best she had ever eaten!More

You could easily walk past this place and we nearly did as we found on the internet and the entrance doesn’t look that interesting . Staff are superb at describing their menu and couldn’t be more helpful . The food would not be my first...choice but pleasantly surprised by the high standards and taste . They do a superb job give them a try you won’t be disappointedMore
