Happy little eateries that go easy on the hip pocket are a dime a dozen in Newtown, but Twelve is a restaurant that possesses a certain level of sophistication over its contemporaries. With a funked-up warehouse feel, the restaurant is decked out in muted tones of brown, with an open kitchen tucked away in the back corner and a smattering of haphazardly hung light-globes illuminating the tables. Big floor to ceiling windows create a fishbowl effect, perfect for having a perve from the outside and for the diners within to keep an eye on the expanse of activity along King Street as they enjoy the menu of modern Australian cuisine with a strong Italian influence.

Poor acoustics means that Twelve can get a bit noisy when service is in full swing, so it may not be the best idea for a first date but its definitely ideal for groups of friends looking for a good night out. Begin with a vanilla Martini from the bar as you settle in to flick through the menu. The prawns Saganaki with tomato, fetta, haloumi, fresh oregano and a hint of chilli are a very delish nod to head chef and co-owner, Harry Hatzistergous’ Greek heritage while the NZ lamb rump with balsamic-glazed beetroot, roasted sweet potato and mint jus gets another thumbs up. Try and leave room for the homemade desserts; the London’s River Cafe chocolate cake with raspberry coulis is divine decadence. Twelve is also child-friendly, with a good kids menu and BYO wine is a dream thanks to Vintage Cellars being in residence next door.
