Wonderful food as per usual. We won a free dessert as we guessed a key ingredient!

Antipodea has quickly become my favourite brunch spot in Putney. The service is amazing, the ambience is perfect, and the food is incredible. I would consider myself to be a bit of a foodie, and I genuinely think it's the best brunch I've ever had. I keep looking for excuses to go back for brunch again!! The special (Nordic Eggs) was beautiful, and the Brew Melt (a favourite) which my friend had was delicious! I was also very jealous of my two friends who went for slightly smaller options (Porridge and Banana Bread with yoghurt and pistachios!) - next time I will definitely have a two course brunch!! Oh and the sides!! We had the mushrooms and the halloumi and oh my! They were phenominal! And you can even buy australian snacks to take away - first time I tried a Cherry Ripe and it was YUM!! Essentially what I'm saying is GO!! You won't be disappointed!

Ambience and setting was lovely. Food was delicious. Struggled to decide what to have; I wanted it all! I like it when you get to see the kitchen in action. Service was brilliant. We were well looked after. Would be a perfect summer spot too! This is a great restaurant away from the hustle and bustle.

I initially disappointed that it was so quiet for a Saturday night, but a few more people came in after us. Given that it wasn't busy, service was a bit slow and not great. My starter (beetroot salad with walnuts) was good, but main course of smoked aubergine ravioli was not hot, and was smothered in too much sauce. One friend had Sliders, which arrived with not even a lettuce leaf on the side, so looked very stark on the plate, and other friend had veal escalope with loads of salad, which seemed a strange accompaniment. It didn't look very appetising, and she didn't eat half of it. We chose a Sauvignon Blanc which was fine but it wasn't Australian, so overall, I'm sorry, but I wouldn't recommend. One friend had eaten brunch in the Richmond branch and said it was great, but there is quite a difference between brunch and dinner.

They don't know how to make a poached egg! raw egg white! also if you want tap water they tell you to get up mid conversation and go get the water yourself! when I told them this was beyond ridiculous they said if I order bottled water they will serve it! also when I complained that my poached eggs were amongst the worst I've had they said "did you want them well done?" when I tried to explain theres a difference between the egg yolk being runny and the egg white being raw they seemed to not get it!! anyway! I won't be going back!

Nice restaurant in Putney. Lovely food, and served very quickly. I had sweet corn fritters, my companion had scrambled eggs. It's a good value for money to.
Just a shame that it was so noisy. Mind you it was Sunday lunchtime.

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.

Great coffee and overall good food (we went for brunch) - though was super disappointed with the corn fritters. They were def not up to the scratch of what you get at any good Kiwi or Aussie cafe. Other meals (incl. banana bread) were delish.

This is a beautiful restaurant hidden away from Putney High Street. The interior makes you feel like your not in England and has a couple hidden nooks for smaller parties. The kitchen is in view through floor to ceiling windows which really adds to the atmosphere. There’s a great terrace outside which will be lovely in the summer time.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Nice wines

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.
