We're regulars here. Service always friendly, efficient and helpful; food fresh and delicious; beautiful surroundings in a simple pavilion style building with plenty of space and views to the vegetable gardens around.

Food and ambience was excellent. However, the service was terrible. We waited more than an hour for our food, the wait staff has no knowledge of the menu and we were overcharged by almost $200. Luckily we checked the bill and it was rectified.

Pesto pasta, amazing.
Carbonara, disappointing. Way too creamy and pancetta of low quality.

Terrible table service. We actually wanted coffee and dessert but got tored of waiting for someone to come over and left. Only 1 lady for multiple tables.

Always an exceptional experience. The food is prepared with care and quality ingredients. The service staff are attentive but understated, warm and casual. A visit to acre is equally rewarding whether dining alone, or with a group.

Service was great and friendly. Some plates missing items from servery. Great location and ambience but food was a little 'ordinary' - The choice of spinach or ham for the Eggs Benedict seemed odd. Maybe it's the current restrictions but you have done better in the past

This is the second time I've been to acre and really enjoyed it again. We had the fathers day lunch set menu which was great value for money and we had wonderful service. Their dry rosé is lovely too!

Nice spot to eat with a family although on this occasion (Father's Day) the service was poor and hot meal was served cold. I personally would have brought this to the attention of wait staff but others in my party did not want to make a fuss. Unfortunately it was a gift from my daughter (not part of our group) who had visited before with a great experience.

The setting is lovely. My friend and I sat indoors on a Saturday night during the Covid-19 restrictions, to which only cursory adherence was demonstrated. The wait staff were very pleasant but far from top notch professionals. We were happy to have a set menu, but were ultimately really disappointed at what was served. Some offerings were delicious (the soup in particular) but generally I thought the food was pretentious and contrived. Servings were far too small (the soup was served in a large coffee cup!! which was only half full). My friend chose the trout and said it was scrumptious. I was disappointed with the small, fatty rib flaps of lamb presented to me in a too sweet, glutinous sauce, with a side of what looked like packet chips. Both desserts were pretty ordinary. I live locally and will go back and try again for a better experience.

The food and staff were lovely, And very helpful in accommodating my friend’s food allergies. However, I was annoyed about the fact that when I made the booking, there was no choice/warning about the set menu. It was not until we arrived that we were informed that we were locked into it.

Whilst the backdrop is just beautiful we left quite disappointed. The coffee arrived cold, the waitstaff seemed very confused by their own processes. The food was also a let down, with the bacon pretty much taken from the packet and popped on a plate.
I wanted it to be so great, but unfortunately it didn’t hit the mark! Plenty of other great cafes to explore in the Inner West!

We were quite disappointed, despite numerous previous great experiences at Acre.

It's a set menu and courses were just dumped down in front of us with no explanation as to what they were. We also weren't served the beetroot dish for some reason. We understand there was a menu there but it felt very abrupt and impersonal. You get more description from an airline steward. Our waiter had a very thick accent and we found it hard to communicate with him at the best of times.

We were being served the next course when our old plates were still crowding the table.

Our wine was placed in an ice bucket on the opposite side of the table and at times we'd go 5 minutes with empty glasses. We would stand up to top up our glasses and a staff member would rush over and yank the bottle off us as if annoyed we'd served ourselves. We finished the bottle and weren't asked if we wanted anything else so we were happy to leave, really.

The best past was it not being so busy and that we were seated far from other groups but that's hardly a glowing recommendation.

The food was fine - some courses better than others. The cauliflower was excellent but the wagyu we paid extra for was just okay. My partner's was missing the butter element but we couldn't attract a staff member to fix it within a few minutes so he just ate it as it was getting cold. This portion was too large considering we'd had several prior courses - one portion would have done us both with a few extra vegetables.

He wasn't interested in the desserts on offer so went without, which isn't great as we'd already paid for it plus extra for the beef. You can't please everyone I guess. I enjoyed the pavlova but it's a bit of an anticlimax for a nice restaurant to be served a dish you can easily make at home (I had to choose this as it was the only gluten free option).

I wouldn't return for a set menu ever again, this was a really disappointing experience and for an anniversary dinner as well... wish we had gone elsewhere.

The set menu was very nice, my criticism would be we felt the main course could of improved with a side course of chips or salad and the desert was disappointing, cream or ice cream would of helped the dryness. I don't think the set course was value for money. The ambience of the restaurant is always lovely.

Selection on the menu isn't large and fairly simple.
Would have liked for there to be a little more to choose from.
Quality of the food is okay, but would have expected more for the price.
Okay for a night out, but don't expect anything mind blowing.
Kind of like going to an over priced pub.

Really lovely restaurant, in terms of setting and service. Didn’t realise it was a set menu when I booked. Understand that might be due to covid and keeping things simple but it was a very limited choice menu. Food was ok.

We have eaten there more than any other local restaurant. The food is always delicious. We had a set menu (party of 10) as they have just reopened and numbers limited. Only downside was the generous servings - not all of us could face the compulsory dessert !
