Our Place On Darling
I booked almost a week in advance and we ended up on pretty much the worst table in the restaurant. The waiter did apologise but it was very disappointing. The booking process itself was a bit confusing as we were a party of 2 adults, a 13 and 10yr old. When booking, you were advised to only book for adults and put any kids in the comments field. I booked for three and advised of the ages of the party of four in total. We were seated at a table for three tucked away in the very back of the restaurant near the entrance to the kitchen.
The food coming out was very very slow and overall it was an underwhelming experience and we would not be coming back.
Food was nice but by the time it came out we were just over the entire night and ready to go home.
Service was a bit slow, probably because it was pretty busy, but otherwise it was a very enjoyable evening with excellent food. It's worth going back to.
The Snapper Pie is the standout here; an unusual combination with porcini mushrooms which is absolutely delicious. Although it can be slow as the crust is baked while you wait. Reasonably priced wine by the glass also.
Yes would definitely recommend this restaurant to our family and friends. All the food we have tried is so delicious and fresh. The Chef must be good to continually serve up such delights. Staff are exceptional and want to make your experience a memorable one. We felt so relaxed and enjoyed our dinner there its hard to not want to go back. I hope this restaurant is a stayer in Balmain. If you haven’t tried it, do yourself a favour and book a table. You won’t be disappointed.
Always an enjoyable experience, thank you for a great night and for looking after us so well.
Our Place was amazing... The service was excellent. Great place for a catch up with friends. Food was extremely good
We had a most enjoyable experience at Our Table. The food was excellent, as was the service. A bit noisy, but that's what happens when everyone is having a good time. Yhe gnocchi with pumpkin and spinach was outstanding and the honeycomb cheesecake was divine. We would definitely return and highly recommend this restaurant.
A group of friends had dinner at "Our Place on Darling", they suggested we take the private dining room which seats 10 people and it was perfect . We loved the food and it was great value for money, byo wine was a bonus as well. The staff were very friendly, we will be back.
As always, food and service was faultless.
Very well run restaurant which covers a good range of dishes, while not extensive.
ie.. should suit all tastes
Excellently prepared and served by knowledgeable and friendly staff
We really enjoyed Our Place on Darling. It was recommended to us an did not disappoint. Food was lovely. Wait staff were really pleasant. All in all, we had a lovely night. We were on the roof. A really lovely atmosphere and quiet.
We love this restaurant. Great atmosphere and really good food. The staff are friendly which makes the experience better. Another great aspect is that you can book a time when you want to be there and not one of those places with only two sittings! A great place to eat and relax and highly recommended.
Loved this place! It was my second time there. The food is delicious. They know how to cook their proteins and the skin was crispy on the fish as promised in their menu. The flavours are wow as well. We had the barramundi with crispy skin which was yum, the lamb was pink and juicy and the confit duck was delicious. The desserts were yummy particularly honey comb cheese cake was to die for. Great espresso martinis as well. The service was very attentive and polite. It just felt like one big happy family everyone who worked there. We loved it and would love to go back again at some point.
Prompt and friendly service, great food. Interesting menu with good variety and options. I appreciate that they allow BYO (wine only). The place has aged well and shows a few signs of wear & tear.. but that Our Place!
The food is delicious, the setting is cozy and the service is excellent. This is a great restaurant.
Food was superb, staff were under the pump & restaurant was full. We had the oysters & polenta chips to start (oysters are freshly shucked & amazing)!!!! I had the duck confit salad which was divine, other guests had the burger & the pesto gnocchi. Topped off with dark chocolate truffles & coffee & the chocolate fondant. Well priced for the quality of the food. Repeat customers- love the incredible quality of food served here. A little noisy if you are looking for a quieter ambience- but this was not a problem for us.
We were greeted as soon as we arrived, the food was well priced and delicious. The staff were attentive and everyone had a great evening. Will be back again.
Excellent food and service as usual. Never fails to impress. One of our favourite places to eat in Balmain.
Our group from Canada were celebrating 2 fiftieth birthdays and had a great time. We originally began going to our place for the welcoming and fun ambiance and delicious home made food but we've continued for the excellence in service, and welcoming hosts and servers.
This time, the owner and his son even took time to visit with us and share some personal Australian stories. We loved that they were running in a marathon for men's mental health and had a promo on for anyone NOT using a cellphone at the table.
Our entire crew feels that "OUR PLACE" is our place! 10 out of 10 - I recommend!
Our Place was a good experience overall, however they did run out of a couple of dishes relatively early. Food we got was very good, service was acceptable, room is loud but mot unbearable. Overall a good dining experience
Great service and food. Highly recommend and will be back
Second time eating at this place and thoroughly enjoyed it again. Brought some friends this time and they loved it too. So good that its byo wine which keeps the cost down. It was a little too noisy though as it was a cold night and the front door needed to stay closed. But overall a great night. The staff and service was top notch as was the food.
We love this place for offering vegetarian options. (And not just the usual mushroom risotto)
Brilliant evening to enjoy the meal. Thank you all!
Great all-round eating experience. Unobtrusive wait staff, good with kids.
food was more than average. It was hard to identify what kind of meat was in the beef burger... definitely not beef
Great service, food and atmosphere as always. Thanks
Enjoyed our meal however it was not quite as good as the last 2 times we have eaten here. The first couple of times the gnocchi was outstanding however last time it was not quite as good. Service was excellent as always. Corkage at $10 per bottle is a little steep when only 2 people are drinking.
This place has been our favourite for over a decade. Our Place manages to keep a modern menu while sticking to their roots as a cosy local gem.
I've been dining at Our Place for a long time, and the owner has always impressed me with his impromptu sense of fun and repartee. The food is consistently good, and it's reasonably priced. If you want less noise, go after 7.00pm after the kiddies have gone home.
Really great service and food.
Another great meal and good wine. Always a relaxed atmosphere and fantastic service: a firm family favourite and our most frequented restaurant. Thanks!
After previous 2 visits, which where top notch expereinces. This visit was very disapointing. The food we odered was not on the menu (sausage Ragu) however chef said ok. A very different taste from previous Ragu.
Great food, awesome service and lovely people there. Perfect for a saturday date night, will visit again.
we were visiting Sydney and this is somewhat academic but it was memorable.
Fantastic Xmas in July dinner. Had originally booked just a normal night but was later rung up by Marco as they were going to make it another Xmas in July night due to popular demand. We were offered the choice of rebooking but were happy to stay with our night and the special meal. And boy are we glad we did. A party of 8 we had a wonderful night. The food was superb and plenty of it. I loved the second helpings that were offered - just like a real Christmas dinner!. Sean our waiter did an amazing job. He was funny as and super attentive. We have eaten here before as a group and had a great time with great food. The special theme lifted this even higher. Thanks to Marco, Seanand all the staff at Our Place. You will be seeing us again that's for sure!
Great food. Great service. Small portions. Would like menu to have more variety.
Its always great food at 'Our Place' but more than that are the friendly staff and cosy atmosphere, which together make the perfect combination for a night out with old friends.
