Sticking to what they do best (as per their name) Steakhouse 66 has spent the last three years serving up some pretty amazing steaks as well as seafood and vegetarian options so that nobody's left out of this dining experience.
We were lucky enough to test out some of their menu and can safely say (without any gluttonous shame) that if we had room in our stomachs for more, we would've happily kept the food coming. So above everything else, arrive hungry. In fact, starve yourself all day so you can make room for as much as you can possibly can. It's worth it, I promise.

It was from here we knew things were about to get serious. Both my dinner companion and I went for the scotch fillet (she with the garlic aoli and me with the blue cheese butter) which comes with small side of chips that don't overtake the plate, but certainly satisfy craving for steak fries with a steak (they just go together, right?)

Our sides included an Asian slaw that was fresh and spicy and everything you'd want it to be, some beautifully steamed fresh vegetables; perfectly cooked and served with toasted almond slivers and the creamiest mashed potatoes with bits of toasted onion on top that you could die happy eating.

The service was incredibly welcoming, the venue not at all loud and great for those who enjoy a bit of conversation over dinner. It's an ideal date restaurant as it's fine dining without any of the pretentiousness.
In fact, there's two small mounted screens where you can watch the kitchen grill in action in anticipation of your meal. And if you're super-keen, they even have an annual pass where you essentially can get a membership entitling you to $15 steaks year round (plus other benefits). As if you'd really need reason to come back....
All up, it's definitely a winner. Our only regret was we left no room for dessert but we are told the signature chocolate fondant is out of this world. We believe them. It's definitely one you'll want to return to.
