Really enjoyable evening- the staff were helpful, polite and appropriately attentive. We had the set menu for restaurant month and the food was excellent. The wines were well matched although there was no commentary from the wait staff as to what we were drinking and why. Other than that, would definitely recommend

What a stunning restaurant. Greeted and treated like real guests at this place. Little touches like fresh lemon offered on a tray with the sparkling water, smoked butter on warm crusty breads - what a great way to start a delicious dinner. Food was exquisite. Plating was awesome and unfortunately we were too ful to try the desserts. First time at Lava and will certainly be back again.

We had the 3 course menu and it was amazing. I especially enjoyed the octopus entree. The potion sizes were very generous given the quality. Would definitely recommend to others.

I went to a dinner party the same night and told everyone there how delicious the meal was and we are all coming there for a lunch one day. My only suggestion was a bit more butter to cover three rolls would have made it perfect.

Menus a bit ordinary. Great if you like shellfish. No prawns on menu.. We used to love the skampy with pumpkin puree. Pork belly entre was served WITHOUT crispy skin so could be improved. No soup on menu yet its winter go figure! We eat there regularly probably twice a month. Would like to see menu updated.

As usual, the food is amazing, the staff are just wonderful. Really loving the new menu as well. We haven't been to Lava for a few months, and the new menu is just as good, if not better, than the old.
