We have been to Quo before they changed premises (across the courtyard) and before it changed ownership. The pork belly is still their signature dish and is excellent. If it had a bit of crackling on it would be outstanding. Service was good and very attentive and it makes a nice change not to have to try and attract your servers attention to get the bill.
One difference is that under previous ownership the owner was seen and visited tables recognizing returning patrons - not the case now unless it was his / her "night off". Nevertheless a good experience.

Hi John. Just to let you know that we have developed and added crackling to our signature pork belly at your request. It has proved to make the dish even more popular than before! We really appreciate your feedback and would like to personally invite you to come and try it. We also have a voucher to give you as a show of our thanks. Please give us a call to claim it and make your reservation. We look forward to seeing you soon.

We had our daughter and her best friend's 21st birthday party here, which turned out to be a huge success, and an excellent time was had by all. The owner and Tracy were so helpful and accommodating to our every request. The food was incredibly delicious, and the ambience was warm and inviting. The way the staff handled the delivery of the food courses and the drinks was admirable - not a glitch and not one of our 50 odd guests complained about having to wait long for their food and drinks. Bernie went out of her way to accommodate my husband with his food and drink allergies. Thank you Quo for a memorable evening!

We went for a delayed wedding anniversary lunch. The food and service was beyond excellent with Tracy and her assistants being extremely helpful. I must especially mention the bread and butter pudding which was the was the best I have ever had. I look forward to trying their special weekday lunch menu.

Quo, had a reputation for serving top quality food unfortunately, this has slipped.
I ordered the Asian Muscles which was served in a very sweet sauce not spicy at all i did not return it but waited for the main course Calamari and Chrizo pasta, It was very disappointing the chrizo that was used was possibly of the poorest quality it was closer to a russian sausage the chrizo. There was no colour to it this is due to it not having any pimention and it had a rubbery texture the sausage was hacked at more that sliced and there were large chunks where the skin still held the slices together.

There was a few small pieces of calamari along with the pasta floating in oil.
I returned the dish then ordered another pasta dish with capers olives etc. This again was floating in oil and very bland i left most of the dish due to the oil content.
My wife had the prawn pasta which she indicated was ok
I have read the previous reviews and looking at the dates it is possible that these was done when the previous chef/owner was around and i would agree with them.

However at present it is disappointing, as in the past i had several good meals here the prices were always a little on the high side however the quality used to be superb.

The setting and service is superb but the quality of the food lets it down.
