cosy atmosphere with lovely wood fire and friendly staff
Great coffee, food was lovely, and staff were extremely responsive. As a small venue with lots of seating, noise was moderate but completely tolerable - even with one of our party having complications with their hearing. Would definitely recommend to others.
A lovely space. Great food. Good Wine. The Staff are helpful and polite.
A fabulous place for a coffee and food. Always great!
Disappointed in food choices.
Food and service were wonderful. Warm, friendly atmosphere and admirable control of background music to facilitate normal talking voices.
Chefs set menu was delicious and good portion sizes.
A small suggestion would be to create a warmer lighting at the table, lovely to have low lighting but tiny table candles could be improved to enhance ambience.
Interior is a very attractive high end transformation of this heritage building with a rustic/industrial feel.
It’s a great buzzy atmosphere for breakfast, brunch and lunch service and has a quieter relaxing vibe for evening service. Great night out assured.
Food was great, service was average. We had their Mother's Day lunch set menu. Despite being only a 1hr booking, drinks were slow to be offered. We also weren't shown a menu when other tables were. We also had to ask for the sauce that accompanied the main when it was forgotten
An excellent evening. First class food (the chef’s selection degustation menu… the mushrooms, oh Lordy, the mushrooms!), a small but solid and well-considered wine list, knockout cocktails (the La Strada Strega was a standout), warm and attentive service, and great ambience in a carefully renovated and updated landmark. Not a cheap night out, but worth every penny. We’ll be back… just try to stop us!
Food and service amazing. Best food in Ballarat.
Breakfast was lovely. Service very good and the atmosphere was warm and inviting.
Would recommend Johnny to anyone. But be sure to book as they get busy!
Cleaver tasting menu in a relaxed setting with professional and highly personable wait staff. One of our favourite dining experiences ever. Cheers legends.
Food was excellent. Venue is lovely. Would like to have seen more choice for lunch menu.
Great food, coffee and service and beautiful space to dine at.
Johnny Alloo is always a delight!
Delicious food. Seasonal and fresh ingredients prepared with care and presented beautifully. Accommodated a celiac guest that was part of our group easily.
Really enjoyed every time I have been to Johnny Alloo. Great coffee, excellent food, and such a good vibe. Love the decor and the staff are super friendly.
The food delicious! The staff were friendly. There is a great selection of wines. We will definitely dine here again.
Johnny does it all, very well. Efficient and energetic staff who know what they are doing. Food that isn’t ho-hum. Great vibe. Keep it up, Johnny
Absolutely fantastic from greeting to ‘waddling’ out.
It was an amazing experience and delicious meal that was tweaked for dietary requirements, the recommendations of beverage pairing was superb.
I will be going back regularly as a solo diner for sure! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Really enjoyed the hospitality and friendly informative staff. We appreciated being accomodate as a last minute booking. We will be back again soon.
Great meal, service and ambience. Looking forward to returning. We have been there regularly during the day and this was our first dinner at Johnny’s. The transition from cafe to dining experience was faultless and we again find ourselves very feeling very fortunate that Ballarat has another great restaurant to choose from.
Excellent personalities between all the staff. Great tasting and variety of food and drinks. Staff very understanding and patient a credit for sure (especially when busy). Thank you to all.
Great service and fresh food. The only think I could fault was the lack air flowing in the space. The window was originally open, then they shut it which was hot and stuffy for a small place.
Love love Johnny’s. Always amazing - food and great coffee!
The peachy boy for brekky was amazing. My husband and I will definitely be returning again soon.
Was looked after by Elissa, who always provides excellent service.
Had a great business lunch there. Simple delicious food. Good service. Not too noisy.
Will be back for sure.
Food was great, service was great.
Service is outstanding, the food is always fresh and delicious and the whole experience is enjoyable.
We love Johnny Alloo and will be back.
Warm inviting restaurant, great menu & wonderful service!
Delicious food, well styled interior, professional service.
A fabulous experience with creative food, delicious cocktails and incredibly friendly and helpful staff.
Great food and service, and selection of wines....
really enjoyed atmosphere and the food was SOOOO good
Service was a little sporadic and there were some issues with paying. The issues got sorted out and were only as a result of technology.
More shade outside would be awesome! Shade sails from the building to the fence would be amazing 👌🏼 Umbrellas hard to angle to avoid the sun but outside a lovely space that would be enjoyed more with extra shade (and cover for Ballarat winter!)
Amazing food and atmosphere. I attended with my 2 little boys , the staff where fantastic and I got to enjoy a lovely date night with my boys.
Brunch date with someone who enjoys great quality food and matched service
Our breakfast was truly wonderful. Each of the 3 dishes we ordered (home-made crumpets with thick cut bacon, scrambled eggs with white anchovies & the mango coconut quinoa bowl) was remarkable and warranted a return visit. 'Alchemy' is the first word that comes to mind in terms of the food that we experienced at Johnny Alloo!
It was out waitress' first day and she nailed it. Food and coffee excellent, as always.
My new favourite I'm going to make my way through the menu, great coffee very friendly staff
