Missing Gorilla Reviews
"I would like to thank Jason and his staff for taking such good care of my family and friends who attended the Wake at "Missing Gorilla" on the 1st July... We were very happy with the way everything went. You definitely fulfilled your promise to look after us, and your attention to detail is very impressive indeed. You had your finger on the pulse from beginning to end, which allowed us to relax and enjoy our time there with our guests.
We received many positive comments from people regarding the venue itself, and the delicious food you served. Quite a few local friends in attendance said they were planning on coming back for dinner so I hope they do. Another couple said they had been for dinner recently and thoroughly enjoyed their meal.
My granddaughters loved the Kids hangout. I hardly saw them the entire time we were there.
You really have a unique venue there, it's an amazing space, with optional areas - like the private room, and of course the balcony, which was very popular with the younger generation and I can imagine how nice it would be out there on a balmy summers night. Unlike all the other restaurants in Eltham, your space is a real point of difference, allowing you to adapt and cater for a variety of different functions." - Cheryl P. (Email)

"What an amazing place to dine in. This place has only opened in the last few weeks. Imagine spacious seatings, engaging service and what makes this place special is you can try the beers and wines before buying. The ambiance of the venue changes some nights with a live band and dim lights.
I loved the Margherita pizza which was baked fresh and the crispiness of the crust. The toppings are light enough to not make the base soggy.
The sticky fried chicken is one of their signature dishes. The chicken is so tender with the crisp tangy yet sweet sauce. The consistency of the sauce is just right.
Grass fed porterhouse steak was so tender and juicy. For those who love crispy chips, I'd recommend trying it.
Sticky date was a great dessert for those who love sweetness. The warmness of the pudding made it more delicious to eat. Although the sauce was overly sweet, it did compliment the pudding well." - Vanessa W. (Facebook)
"The slow roasted lamb for Mother’s Day melted off the bone. It was a wonderful lunch out with the family for a special occasion. Anthony and Jason are great hosts walking around and getting to know everyone. We will be back." - Caroline A. (Facebook)
