Food is unreal! Celebrated a special occasion with parents and we all had the share platters which were delicious! We were there mid afternoon on a Sunday and the service lacked but the venue is lovely and the food is excellent. I'll be back.

From the second that we were greeted at the door till the moment we left, the attention to detail was outstanding. Food quantity (serving size) and quality was excellent, as was the service from the young people who attended to our table.
Highly recommended and we will be regulars when we visit Camperdown

Unfortunately the place looked amazing and has such potential with its beautiful surroundings however the food lacked flavour. Looked fancy on the menu but was not at all. The special was not available and we arrived at 6:30.

It’s different to what you would expect from a restaurant in the Inner West. The setting is great. The only slight downer was the restaurant was quite empty and we were sat really close to a table of 5 right next to us. If it was busy then no worries, but there was an opportunity to have a table spare between every one. But, everyone was friendly, food was delicious and prompt. Good wine. We were happy.

Still my favorite restaurant, 3 birthdays in a row! The waitstaff were all super sweet about that too. Service was a little slower than usual, but it was pretty busy. The food was delicious, the saffron risotto with oxtail being an absolute stand out-- I think Mike wanted to lick the leek gratin plate after though hahaha. The lamb just slid off the rib, smooth and easy as you please, sticky sweet and punchy. And the whole roasted cauliflower? Oh my gosh. Delightful experience over all, hope I don't have to wait for my next birthday to go again. Thanks guys!

We always enjoy your venue at Acre Eatery. Rarely have we had any negative vibes. We introduced two friends to Acre and they were very impressed - No 1 because of the food and service and venue; No 2 because we could eat at 1430, at our leisure, in relative quiet, and not be rushed out. They will come back as will we - Acre is one of our favourites. And now, when it opens, we are very eager to experience your new Melbourne venue. Thank you again.

Although a lovely setting I think there is a disconnect between the garden - menu - execution of the food. The food wasn’t garden fresh or overly seasonal. I was expecting a more whole food experience and it wasn’t

Very difficult to get service all the way through the meal - from ordering, till payment. After our mains we actually wanted to get dessert but had a really difficult time getting a server to come to our table so we could ask for a menu. We ended up deciding to leave. We actually had to find someone after we left the table so we could pay for our meal, when we approached the server clearing our table, they thought we already paid!!

We all enjoyed our evening at the restaurant, beautiful place, so open and inviting, beautiful entry, great garden, would’ve loved to have gone out to take a proper look, it was dark, so we’ll have to return in daylight hours. The staff are happy to please and accommodating. The food was Great & plentiful. We celebrated our Daughter, Elise’s 19TH Birthday. Will definitely return and recommended, 100%.

I celebrated my Dad's 80th birthday lunch at Acre last Sunday. The place was heaving and it was quite difficult for some of our older guests to hear but it didn't spoil our day. The food was absolutely delicious and we had a lovely waitress. We had a very leisurely lunch and stayed for about 4 hours, at no time were we rushed which was lovely. Overall the experience was fantastic and I look forward to visiting again

Food options are limited, would have liked more to choose from. That being said the quality of the food was good, and we had the lamb share plate which was great. The kids had fish and chips which was really good and the batter was amazing.

With only yes / no as an option, I say yes, but the true answer would be I'm not sure about recommending Acres to a friend. The place is beautiful and the waitress who served us was very nice and was doing her best, but there was not enough staff so we found ourselves waiting for quite a long time before getting any service at all, and the same throughout each stage of the meal. The table was only half set, with some of us not having a fork, some not a knife. The quality of the food was very good, but a number commented on the serving size, and one actually sent hers back. For around $38 she got a really small piece of fish, and if we wanted salad that was an extra $10. The main reason our group may not return, and may not recommend it to others would be lack of value for money. Still it was a very enjoyable night. Thanks.

Acre Eatery is a great little escape from the city in the city. The restaurant is in the middle of its own acreage where they are growing some of the meal - and it has you feeling like you’re in the country. Great food.

Went with a vegetarian friend and both of us had plenty of choice and as a non-vegetarian, I enjoyed the veggie options too

Two large functions in a the same time but well enough separated to not have excessive noise levels

Excellent however the fish for 2 was not sufficient, once we spoke to staff and then kitchen they resent another fish order out. This is more a meal for one and not two despite the price.

Everything else was excellent!!

The food was yummy - but cold. We sent our meal back TWICE as it only came out warm. We had lamb shoulder which isn't really a dish you want luke-warm. The service was friendly, but didn't offer us anything for the inconvenience. We had overpriced dips for entree. The restaurant was also freezing - it was a cold night and the space is very open. Overall it was nice, but disappointing. I expected more.
