Howards Cantina, established in 2017 with Executive Chris Bell, offers diners a share plate experience restaurant that has already received critical acclaim.

The food is authentic with creative textures highlighted by strong techniques in every dish. The kitchen team tread the boards and the front of house team share in the passion for food that is served.

Each dish has a unique story - the stories are of childhood memories on southern beaches, over coming challenges in times of hardship, and you may even find yourself being introduced to the chef's mother-in-law... The team at the Cantina tell these stories using the honest language of seasonal, personally selected produce. Incorporate this with a creative presentation and you are invited to indulge in dishes that are both engaging and interactive.

A semi-private dinning room offers mixture of high and low seating and is offset by the theatre of the cocktail bar, making for an interesting space where you can relax and unwind. The shared dining experience at Howard's Cantina is designed to stimulate conversation between guests, the kitchen and the front of house staff.

Howards Cocktail Bar


The drinking culture at Howards Cantina & Cocktail Bar is all about classic drinks made with the best ingredients. The team offer original creations to challenge you with an emphasis on incorporating smoking and infusion. Try the smoking negroni where wood chips marinated in grand mariner for 7 days are smoked to create a unique aroma challenging the mind as well as the palate.

Our Tip: Sit at the bar, talk to the team, grab some olives and make a session of it by exploring what you like made their way!
