Antipodea Putney Ratings and Reviews
This is a fairly new operation - which is different from the normal restaurant. They make their own bread and grow their own herbs (and tomatoes potatoes and beens are coming along)
Expensive for what it is but good fun and a pleasant ambiance. Something different will not disappoint.
Good home made bread; pizzas that looked like the photo on the website pleased the children; excellent burger; Moroccan roast chicken comprising different parts of the bird was succulent and attractively presented. Staff were most welcoming. However, I recommend taking an extra layer in case you are seated outside and away from one of the heaters.
Service was great. The right side of knowledgeable without being pushy
Interior has been done well so there's a good atmosphere
The food was generally pretty good although a couple of meat dishes came out blue instead of pink and the lobster was very small for the price.
Overall we felt at £50 a head (only a drink per person) it was a little pricey
It was my partners birthday and we thought we would try Antipodea as it had just opened. The restaurant space is very well designed and provides a very good atmosphere for dinner. Unfortunately, the waitresses were stretched and really struggling to stay on top of people's orders. We were seated for about half an hour before our drinks were brought to the table, and over an hour before receiving our main courses. We weren't in any real rush but didn't want to wait so long.
The restaurant was running an offer on food and drink when we visited - the discounted bill was reasonable. However, if we had had to pay full price it would have been a very expensive meal for what it was and ultimately quite a disappointing experience.
The food was tasty and the restaurant pleasant to be in, therefore I really hope that the problems iron themselves out once Antipodea has been established a little longer.
We enjoyed the food, although we waited a lengthy time for it which, given the number of people serving and the number of chefs who appeared to be working, we couldn't really understand. The special Kangaroo offer of 50% off was worthwhile, but we wouldn't go for the full dinner price, though because, for three, that would amount to over 160 pounds.
We visited on a 50% discount deal with the family. Without that it wouldn't be possible. They have tried to move the Brew Cafe up to a Restaurant and have not succeeded. It is disappointing that they felt the need to change the makeup of what seemed a successful Aussie brunch cafe type place. The dishes whilst still good quality were small, and they are basically still the same menu as the cafe was. I will not be visiting with the family. At the full price it will be off the scale.
Antipodea is only worth going to when their 50% off promotion is on as it is far too expensive for the quality of service and food provided. The evening menu isn't as good as breakfast. Better to offer more pizza choices as that's the only value for money item on the menu.
The restaurant itself is quite far out of Putney centre but it's a pleasant getaway, with pleasing decor, and a good view into the kitchen if seated at the right table. The restaurant was practically empty on a Thursday night, food came reasonably quickly and the waitress was pleasant though my husband had to ask whether she would like to know what sauce he wanted with his steak and how he liked it cooked as she wasn't about to ask which was a tad unusual and disappointing. The menu had some interesting dishes but most felt lacking in some way, i.e. the pork with cornbread and pineapple though tasty needed something extra, veg perhaps. The only steak on the menu was twice the price of all the other meals, and though nice was nothing to shout about and certainly not worth the price. The peach crumble was average, slightly dry and lacking finesse, the chocolate souffle was nicely risen but unfortunately soup like inside. Overall we were disappointed with the food, menu and as a result the price.
We booked a table for 4 and visited the day before to confirm and select a table, when we arrived the table we reserved was taken by someone else but we were told it would be free shortly. We sat at a small table and ordered drinks and our food. The food was delivered and they still hadn't found us a table and instead tried to serve it at the tiny table were on, at our insistence they joined another table to provide some space. We were outside and next to a heater, halfway through the meal this was taken away and placed next to another table of 2 who said they were cold - so were we !
Our starters and mains were good, desert was disappointing. When we left the table we should have had initially was still occupied.
We were on the 50% introductory offer and so took it all with good humour, had we been paying full price we would not have been at all happy.
To add injury to insult they had clearly not registered us on opentable who contacted me that evening to enquire why we had not turned up for our reservation!
