Not knowing what to expect, we took a quick look around the menu and tables around us to see what was on offer and settled on getting a pizza and some of the share plates.
Buffalo mozzarella and basil pizza
Steak with truss tomatoes (share plate)
Roasted heirloom vegetables (share plate)
The pizza was great. The base was crisp, the flavours good and it was soon demolished.
The share plates were also delicious. My favourite for the night was the scotch fillet steak, which was cooked exactly as we ordered and melt-alicious, and the heirloom vegetables were roasted perfectly. Sadly, the vegies had too much salt for our taste, which was the one disappointment, foodwise.
Service, however, had us both unpleasantly surprised. I used to be a laid back diner, not caring about service, but this is the second time recently that I've come across attitude in a waiter. I'm not quite sure why you would enter a service industry if you feel you are above serving people, but our waiter (no others, just ours!) deemed us to be unworthy of polite attention, instead serving us with an attitude of contempt before making conversation with one table of diners while we waited and waited to pay our bill. We finally gave up and took our bill to the counter where another (lovely) waiter looked after us.
Food at Leura Garage is definitely worth dropping in for, I just hope you don't have our bad luck with the waitstaff.
