Friendly staff, excellent food, lovely atmosphere. This is the 2nd time we have been to Circa 1876 and both times it has been a pleasure.

We had the Wagyu steak for two which was absolutely delicious. Atmosphere was beautiful at the restaurant. I loved the rustic feel and the floral arrangements on the ceiling. Very romantic and intimate feel. Service could have been a little better. I found we were always needing to request or wait for service regarding food and drinks.

This restaurant is beautifully old and quaint! We opted for the 5 course degustation which was amazing - each course was delicious and the presentation exceptional along with palette cleansers between most courses. We didn't do the wine pairing as felt the cost was a bit steep for half serves - we just ordered white and rose wine off the menu, both of which were delightful. The service was great also, I would definitely recommend Circa!

Quite a delightful and tasteful three course lunch experience. Our waiter Andre was knowledgeable of the wine list and helped us pair to the food. Great location and venue.

Food was great although we wanted to get the 5 course degustation and at no point in the booking process was I informed that because there was a wedding the day we had booked for, the 5 courses would not be available
