At Half Acre, we believe that dining should be a warm and welcoming experience.

That’s why our space combines the casual vibe of a laid-back gathering spot with the elevated atmosphere of a fine-dining restaurant.

As soon as you step inside, you’ll be greeted by the sounds of conversation and laughter coming from our lively public bar and courtyard. Here, you can chat with friends over a cold beer or a glass of wine from our extensive cellar.

The real magic happens in our 85-seat restaurant, the Glass House. This nickname comes from the stunning glass roof that illuminates the space, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. If you’re looking for a more intimate experience, the Chimney House is a cozy 16-seat private dining room, perfect for a special occasion or a quiet night out.

Our space is designed to feel like a dinner party with friends. The chairs are comfortable and inviting, and extra tableware is always within reach. In the kitchen, our chefs are busy preparing mouth-watering dishes over open coals, like whole fish, steaks, and sizzling meats and vegetables.

You can choose from a variety of dining experiences to suit your needs. Whether you prefer to dine in with us regularly, book a table for a special occasion, or reserve the entire space for a large event, we have you covered. And if you’re looking for a semi-private setting, we can even close off an area just for you and your guests

At Half Acre, dining is an experience to savour, surrounded by warmth, comfort, and good company.
