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.

The dining room is a great space and decorated with old radios and cameras. Love the brick walls. The food was ok. I think most dishes were over seasoned though. The lamb was nicely cooked as was the steak. The pork was tasty but a...bit dry. The presentation did let the dishes down though and could do with a bit more care and flare. Overall an ok experience.More

The chicken dish was excellent. The pork dish was flavourful but the meat was very tough. The beef rogue was disappointing. Nice atmosphere and good service.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at this restaurant. We were quickly seated even though we did not have a booking but it would be a good idea to book. The staff were very attentive and the food and wine was amazing. The decor is...rustic and moody with interesting old bric a brac on display. It is rather expensive but it is a great dining experience from start to finish. I would defiantly go back if I had the opportunity.More

Lovely service! The staff lit a little candle for me even though I was dining solo. It wasn’t super busy, the waiter was super attentive including checking the meal was to my liking. Very reasonably priced and the food was delicious! I went with the...Roman carbonara.More

A plate full of pepper, steak was over cooked yet had no sear on the outside, frozen vegetables and packet jus that had too much water added. Over all, terrible. Wont return.

I visited Gaslight on a Sunday evening with two good friends. The staff were exceptionally polite with low key, but efficient, attention. I felt the menu was rather limited with a heavy emphasis on meat dishes and no fish on the menu. I had the...risotto which contained seafood. I didn't want the spicy chorizo sausage, but without it the dish was rather bland. Perhaps the sauce could be improved. Other dishes had spicy chorizo sausage- obviously a chef's faboiurite, but sadly not mine! The cheesecake desert and creme brulee were very good.More

Our family of five went for a meal after the graduation ceremony. I ordered a steak, well done, my son said times two. My grandson ordered medium rare steak. Two other different meals were ordered. When my steak arrived the waiter said medium well and...I said no I had asked for well done. He then changed his mind and said well done. I asked how it could be two different things. He said for me to cut the steak and find out. It was quite hard to cut and he hassled me again to cut the meat. He was talking over my food which put me off my meal. Later he came back and said I had changed the order, the waitress had med well written down and i had changed it to well done. I had not changed the order. I was annoyed that either the waitress or the waiter had made a mistake and then tried to blame it on the customer. It spoilt the atmosphere of the evening. I gave my steak to my husband as i could not enjoy it after all this hassle.More

We had a really great dinner, ribeye and beef ragu, which were great! For desert creme brûlée and chocolate ganache, the desert were super too sweet, maybe add a little balance would be better. Great service, overall a good choice.

Went on a Saturday night, service excellent, food excellent all in all a very pleasant experience. The building the restaurant is in, has great atmosphere and the front of house was only too happy to tell us about the building. The food is extremely well...priced, beautifully presented, and very enjoyable. Came away feeling very happy with the evening. The, pasta and lentil dishes were excellent, plus the creme brulee and the Afogato.More

The restaurant is bright and clean, warm and welcoming. We were welcomed with a huge smile and seated immediately. The menu is small but there is a good selection. Perhaps a lemon dessert could be added - but that’s just a preference of mine. Entree...is a du jour - one choice which was shellfish. Instead we started with breads and spreads - there were 4 flavours plus aged balsamic. Gorgeous- my favourite was the garlic. Also included tapenade, honey butter and lemon, sun dried tomato. There are just 4 slices (half slices) of bread but the meal sizes are substantial enough you don’t want to fill up on the bread. I had Kraken Risotto (I wanted to say Release the Kraken!) which had calamari, mussels and prawns. Also had broccoli, capsicum and blue cheese. It was spicy and plentiful. Delicious. My dining partner had Rib Eye which had large yummy chips, spinach and mushrooms with a jus. She loved it. We shared a rich chocolate tart with creme praline for dessert (this was the special). Very enjoyable meal with attentive staff in a lovely atmosphere. The coffee wasn’t strong is my only issue with the whole experience.More

I found the staff very accommodating we had large group an still had very prompt service. We reserved tables prior. I got the mulled wine and Poulet which had chicken and bacon and a lovely sauce, all the flavours seemed to complement each other perfectly....I especially liked how soft the potatoes were. It is more expensive that what I would normally pay for a meal at $36 but was definitely worth it. Was lovely and warm in the building with nice music that was quiet enough so everyone could easily converse.More
