SARDINE eatery + bar
Sehr hübsche Bedienung, Insbesondere der Minirock.
very nice atmosphere. the staff is very focus on details
Very interesting and different food from the high street usual chain restaurants
The service is outstanding and the food is always well-prepared. A wide range of options.
Breath taking view, great food and excellent service.
Amazing time Fun experience and good food a must go for anyone
wonderful find just off the river. great atmosphere.
I absolutely loved the view over looking the water prefect for a first date.
Best in Town ever. I like the restaurant and the Service.
If we wanted to save some cash we could have just licked a rock in the outback. Bland food with 0 inspiration. Might be good for yanks to waste $ on
For a special event the Sardine does not disappoint. The food is good, although on the expensive side. Very good service.
Had a really bland meal here that was overpriced and not super tasty. The place just seems to think it's nice than it is.
Love this spot. We always sit at the bar. Joey the bartender is awesome!
We two were there for lunch (brunch) menu.
They've got their act together.
My fish omelette was superb.
An OpenTable special! I live in London and get a random pop up to review a place in Oz?!?
Wonderful atmosphere, friendly & attentive staff that were accommodating when we had to add 2 extra guests at the last minute. The service was timely, allowing us to relax and enjoy each course with a break in between to really enjoy the food & not feel rushed. The chef's menu selection was a great way to sample most of the delights & great value for money. The food was elegant, fresh, consistently well presented & tasteful - would highly recommend this as a treat for your night out, as a couple or a group of friends.
Fabulous restaurant we frequent regularly. Never disappoints
Food ,service and wine outstanding. We had a fantastic lunch......
Can’t wait to go back again,
We’ve been a number of times now, and have never ever been disappointed . It’s a great pity we are moving from the area. However, if we come back this way at all, we will make a bee line for a feed 😊👍
Great atmosphere, made into a very special night thank you so much
Beautiful food presented in a contemporary style which makes you appreciate the meal more.
The best in Paynesville, and east Gippsland with beautiful local food and wine
Amazing food, service and ambience. Can't wait to go back. Best food in Gippsland by far.
Expected to be disapointed after all the reviews but WOW. Absolutely brilliant. Figs yum, sardines yum. Lamb shoulder amazing. Snapper with clams bacon and peas delightful as was tempura brocolli. Great value for money considering the overall quality of the experience.
Dined at 8.30 after lunch at the Long Paddock in Lindenow. What a day, destination dining around Bairnsdale, could have finished with breakfast at Northern Ground the next day but too well looked after by AirBnB hosts in Raymond Island.
The food is delicious, ambience lovely, great service and location. I particularly loved the local shellfish dish - it was divine :)
A divine evening in Paynesville. We had walked past Sardine many times but never to enjoy. Our loss.
First time last night and not disappointed. Food, wine and service was fabulous.
From the cute seafood broth in a nugget pumpkin, to the slow cooked lamb followed by some very cute deserts, we loved every taste.
Will be a regular there from now on.
One of the best eating experiences we have had, this includes a 3 star Michelin in France. Wow flavours and exceptional service from Laura. Understated, relaxed and fantastic value. The Yunupingu sardines are to die for! Thank you for a very memorable meal.
As first timers we were extremely impressed with all aspects of the Sardine experience.
This is the best place to eat in East Gippsland. Been there 4 times this year already having the Chef selection each time. Everytime there are different items produced so it never gets stale. Wonderful service and great ambience. Highly recommend.
A real gem on the front at Paynesville . Great service and really tasty food . The Sardines were excellent and the Snapper really lovely with the clams were excellent . The kids menu fish and fried potatoes were really tasty ( order envy with our 5 year old ) . Parfait for dessert was excellent , good wine list made a lunch on a soggy Saturday a real treat .
We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Sardine a few weeks ago. Seamless booking, warm welcome from friendly staff. Good recommendations for wine. We found it hard to choose from the small plates to share. Everything looked delicious , and was. We enjoyed the choice of vegetables and food.
All in all, a good experience, we would definitely go back when in the area.
Proffesional, friendly staff. Great food. The confit trout was amazing ! Service staff had great skills - a rarity these days.
Pleasant evening out but service was slow and the wine pairing was disappointing.
Yet another fabulous experience at our favourite eatery. Dined with a party of 10, many of whom hailed from Melbourne where a great dining experience is often par for the course (but sometimes not!). This dining experience did not disappoint - they were delighted with the high quality of the food, the value for money & the exemplary service. All said that they would not hesitate to return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Sardine eatery + bar. We had the Chef Selection and every dish was delicious. The chef uses local produce which we liked. If you enjoy fine food I would highly recommend this restaurant.
I found the food to be strongly flavoured and tasty while the deserts proved to be wonderful.
However I really was annoyed to think that I was just getting portions off a larger baked fish that I may have shared with other dinners. Perhaps pressentation of the head and tail of the fish would improve that objectively.
Further, anticipated an offering of assorted bread and butter. Bread or a substitute was missing.
Seating and placement tended to be cafe style.
So lucky to have such a great restaurant in Paynesville
Nice, but slightly too long between courses.
Have been here several times always wonderful food never disappoints. Service top class , would have liked to sit outside, but not able to request on line and we were sat at the back which had no view. A minor issue all in all a great lunch
We loved Sardine bar + eatery. The food was delicious; the meal sizes were sensible; the wine list was extensive without being overwhelming; the staff were knowledgeable, helpful and unobtrusive.
Our only quibble was with the decor - with the clean, modern tables and gorgeous grey crockery, we felt some colorful artworks would add to the ambience.
That said, we would all love the opportunity to visit again.
Thank you for a lovely evening
