If you want to spoil that special someone, or impress some guests, you can’t look past Black. Stylish decor, well presented staff, perfect cocktails, precise service and stunning food. The perfect pre-show venue! What more could you ask for? Definitely a winner!

Disappointing is the only way to explain a visit to the black bar and grill. The service is better at your average RSL club or Mac Donald’s . It really is disappointing when a place with good food let’s itself down with what appears to...More

A real shame. The staff and service was great and the venue and aspect excellent. Unfortunately the food was only average. The steaks seemed as if they had just been microwaved to heat up. The bread was some kind of croissant loaf.

Hi best contact the restaurant re timing. When we went we were there for lunch and as we had so many courses we were there about 3hrs. I’m sure if you got a drink and a main you’d be fine.
