One of the best meals I’ve had! The service is fantastic and the food is simply delicious! The staff and owner are welcoming and friendly and really make you feel special. The Sunday roast can’t be missed! I was also pleasantly surprised to find a...wide range of local wines and beers! We Will definitely be back!More

Just my type of place. A lot of attention to detail. Quirky with lots of books and crannies to explore. Even the small ones were catered to with the beautiful playground. Just one big problem….the wait. People after us got served first and we landed...up getting our food one and a half hours after ordering. Our 11 year old boys were gripping their cutlery so hard that I feared they would go for the parading rooster outside. We all gulped the food as soon as it was presented before it. I do not even know if it was good because it was good or good because we were starving…More

The only reason I have given the restaurant such a poor rating is because after sitting down for 2 hrs and 1.5hrs after ordering we still had not received our food I had to demand from the Owner that if our food was not on...the table within 5mins we would walk. We were told an hour and that we were prepared for. Suddenly our food arrived and it was delicious to say the very least. We shared a whole lot of starters and I can highly recommend the chicken livers, the mussels and the calamari. The Caesar Salad was a disappointment however and expensive for what was received. Unfortunately there are no food photos as we were so hungry that we wolfed down the food as soon as it hit the table. Alex who seems to run the restaurant was a delight and had us in stitches and together with the Chef( who came to the table) apologized profusely for the delay, whilst the Owner seemed unperturbed and sat in the sun drinking with her friends.More

What a lovely surprise!! What is there not to love?? From the atmosphere, the food, wine and then ... the staff!! We've been staying 4 years on the West Coast - our 1st time at 1910 The Old Forge Bar & Restaurant - one word:...Impressive!! Try their chicken livers with mash and peas or my meat-free choice was Penne Arabiata, just the right amount of chilli!! Loved every morsel! Definitely our new favorite.More

The Old Forge is a beautiful Restuarant in Darling. Nina and her staff serve world class food and do it with style. The service is on point and we felt as though we could sit there all day just enjoying ourselves on the delicious fare....Great job everyone!More

They prefer a reservation but we arrived on the day and managed to get a table. It depends on how busy they are, I guess.
