Not overly busy. Staff friendly and efficient. It was happy hour. Don’t usually do cocktails but loved the ones we ordered.
Food was fine. Nice flavours
We might use this location more often

    We enjoyed our meals in the restaurant in Victoria, though one of us found her chicken portion not enough.
    We weren't very happy with the service as staff wasn't attentive and pleasant.

    Lovely spacious table and delicious food. Would have been good if the restaurant, being so big,could separate adults only from adults with children . That way the child can runaround the table as much as they please and their adults enjoy.

    Great service - our food came out well in time for pre-theatre. My brother arrived late and we’d all ordered but they rushed his order through so we could eat together. Everything was delicious and reasonably priced

    A wonderful evening with friends, excellent food and drink. The staff are all friendly, helpful and professional.

    Can not fault anything in Balans at Cardinal Place, Victoria.

    It was an evening of two halves. The food was delicious, but the service left a lot to be desired. Our waitress was clearly in a bad mood when she pointed out the list of cocktails on offer for happy hour. I asked if there was any chance of having a virgin cocktail included only to be told I'm an abrupt tone "no- I told you it was only these ones". Rather than argue I ordered a virgin mojito but she misheard and bought me a virgin mary. When I asked for this to be corrected she pulled a very rude face behind my back (not caring that my friends could clearly see) and the went to the bar to moan about us - which was obvious as our table was next to the bar. There was a very long delay for my replacement drink, which was almost definitely done out of spite. By the time our food came we had luckily moved on to another server. He was jolly and a big improvement, but the first lady had still soured what should have been a fun pre-Christmas night with friends. I would recommend balans to others as long as they don't get the dark haired miserable waitress.

    I have visited this restaurant several times and had some really nice experiences. I have taken friends there and I have not been able to find fault previously however on this occasion, it was a very different visit. Again I brought new friends to the restaurant after explaining how good I found it. the service was poor, we were left for overly long periods (I think we were actually forgotten about) and the food we ordered came out at different times when it was ordered as sharing platters although the quality of food was good. When I arrived, it was obvious that there was a manager having a meeting, at a table at the front of the restaurant. He was sitting facing the entrance of the business, maybe he should have been facing the main seating areas of the business to see what was happening. the restaurant was not overly busy, probably only 40% of the covers were taken so given my previous experiences, it was a thoroughly disappointing visit.

    We appreciated the great jug size for tap water and that it was left on the table. Also the 50% of mains sweetened the deal :)
