One of The Conservatory's Favourite Reviews What's This?
The Conservatory’s Paprika Squid is, I dare say to anyone, the best squid dish I have ever experienced. Ever.
The squid is not only flavorsome but is so tender and soft that it’s almost a struggle to pluck up with a fork (try it and you’ll see what I mean). Never settle for rubbery squid again by treating your senses to The Conservatory’s Paprika Squid – it’s bloody beautiful.
The Wharf Platter is also divine to share between friends (2 if you’re hungry, 4 if you’re a bit peckish), especially the tea smoked salmon which falls a part in the mouth – my only wish is that there was more of this salmon on the platter as it really is moreish.
Thank you so much to the friendly staff of The Conservatory who made our night amazing and to the chefs for their excellent work, my friends and I will be back many times to taste our way through the menu.
Will definitely like to go there again with friends.
The quality of the food was very good. We ordered a number of smaller dishes, including fries and squid, as well as some of the large pizzas. The batter on the squid was perfect and the pizzas were flavoursome with a crisp crust.
There is a good range of alcohol that is all well priced for the waterfront.
It was a fantastic night and we would happily eat there again.
Overall, we had a fantastic night at this great bar and highly recommend it for a function, in particular Dell and Mark well exceeded our expectations. Thank you!
Overall great place when you feel rich and wanna take someone special for a quite exclusive drink

I definately reccomend The Conservatory for your function.
From the makeshift bar that was set up for our guests, to the management staff who were an absolute pleasure to deal with, I can wholeheartedly recommend it.
The food is perfect for small groups, but was also easily accommodating to our large group, the music was great and the drinks prices reasonable.
We were surprised how far our tab went.
Thank you to all the staff, and particularly Dell for being such a big part of a fantastic night!
The food was outstanding, drinks selection more than adequate and prices very reasonable.
Highly recommended for a few quiets or speak to the bar staff if you’re looking for a hidden gem for a special event!
Love the Conservatory and looking forward to more pizza in the summer time. The service was great and we really enjoyed the comfy sofas at the front of the restaurant. The Bastard Chardonnay is always a winner.
The wine fridge/pump system has to be seen to be believed!
Like many of the new bars on the North Wharf I think they had some teething problems earlier on but have upped their game hugely and I go back at least once a week when I want a friendly environment.
Hence some of the poor reviews date back to last year when they first opened but more recently the reviews are consistently good.
And that’s my experience.
The food was excellent (mixture of pizzas, tapas, platters and the like), drinks and service of them likewise. Moreover, on a busy Sunday afternoon the whole venue coped superbly with the tribe of children under 5 and the delights of the balloon entertainer!
Thanks again for such an outstanding display of customer service from start to finish.
Excellent food (I had the Duck Salad, awesome!), and a nice relaxed environment where the 4yo could socialize with another child around her age and we could keep an eye on them while chatting.
Definitely recommend for a pleasant afternoon.
2 beers took over 10 minutes to be delivered. The food (one bowl of potatoes) didn’t even arrive and we had to ask for it several times. The staff didn’t even seem to really care or want to followup on things. After just spending 3 weeks in the US where service is number one it was quite a shock to come back to such poor service.
