They try to get you to give them a tip through the eftpos machine so watch out for that.

Great relaxed atmosphere! We were here during happy hour and ordered a table full of drinks. Food was delicious, we had the natural oysters which were fresh as well. Great summer/group get together win the courtyard.

It was good. Nice alfresco dining.

Waitress was new & as a result was not familiar with the menu so wasn't able to answer questions about it herself, we also had to ask for a menu. She was very apologetic though & explained she was new. Found the menu limited with not many choices & we opted to sit outside because inside too noisy. Wouldn't return for a meal, would only go to the bar area if I went back.

Food was great and service wonderful. I booked in advanced for a group of 10 and we had lovely space up the back.
Thanks for coming to Speakeasy! See you again soon :)

About Speakeasy Kitchen Bar

Our lips are sealed Created as a nod to the speakeasy culture of illegal drinking dens set-up during America’s prohibition era, Speakeasy (now completely legal) hasn’t been much of a well-kept secret. This diner quickly sparked the interest of locals and businesses and it's packed out most nights. The small entrance – a three metre wide shopfront on Chapel Street – is a deceptive one. As you move through the space, a smart dining room and large outer-terrace reveal themselves. The menu has a Modern-Australian/American style vibe with plenty of choice. If you’re there with a group go for one of the sharing platters before ordering a solo chocolate mousse for dessert. The unspoken rule at Speakeasy that you must have a drink at all times - try their signature ‘Summer Speakeasy”: watermelon muddled with tromba blanco tequila & soho lychee liqueur, topped off with blueberries & lemonade to kickstart your night. Best Dish: any of the burgers.
