We accidently landed up in this restaurant. It just looked nice and impulsively decided to go inside. It has a kovely atmosphere. Food and service is good but quite pricy. Location very good. Try to go when they have seasonal specials as to enjoy meals at better prices

I dined by myself at Mondiall after a busy day’s shopping and thoroughly enjoyed people-watching on their deck. Their service was fantastic and all the items I ordered; from drinks to dessert arrived within 10 minutes of being ordered.

The food was good, but a little more attention to detail could be put into their dishes. The wagyu burger was really enjoyable, but the bun was ever so slightly stale and would have been perfect had it had some sesame seeds on it. The cheese was clearly a generic processed slab of gunk and could have been substituted for some good quality cheddar. The burger also could have done with a nice salty addition of bacon. The fries were good, but the ‘umami’ tomato sauce tasted like good old ‘All Gold Tomato Sauce’. I enjoyed the burger, but for it’s exorbitant price, I expected more.

The wine list is a rip off. I noticed many bottles being charged at three times the standard price and many of them were not high quality wines.

The tonka-bean cheesecake with caramelized macadamias and caramel sauce was superb.

I visited Mondiall previously, and I can say for sure that the standard of food has dropped. I really appreciate the great service, but it is of no use if the quality of food cannot meet the same standards.

Overall good experience with friendly waitstaff, an over the top hostess and great food and drink selection. We visited when a new menu was out and the dishes looked and tasted great.

We went here by chance and were glad we did. Excellent meals all round both seafood and meat. Nice choice of wines. Good value and efficient friendly service.

We've been returning to Mondiall each year since it has opened and on our recommendation we visited again with family and friends. We were not disappointed. As with our previous visits we had an excellent evening. The food was of a very high standard, the game fish tacos, the piri piri prawns and the burgers were a hit with all. Service was very good, attentive without being rushed. Yes it is a little pricier than some of the restaurants but it's worth it and the views, if you get a window table, are stunning.
