The playful Steak on Stones with its mishmash interior of exposed brick wall, dark grey furnishings and wide wooden tables invites customers to unleash their inner chef with a DIY approach to dining out. A hunk of fillet steak or smaller portion of lean kangaroo is butchered into thin slices, ready to sizzle at the table on a hot lava stone, tantalising any newly arrived neighbours with its wafting meaty aroma. A popular choice for date night and celebratory meals, the set up encourages a critique of diners' cooking ability, while the likes of hand cut fries and somewhat bland smoked macaroni cheese begin to cool. Large crystals of rock salt prevent the raw meat from sticking and make refreshing sharing cocktails and spicy European reds an essential, yet very pleasant, thirst quencher. Starters, including generous quenelles of chicken liver pâté or the retro prawn and avocado cocktail are perhaps a little unnecessary: there are freshly piped doughnuts available to satisfy any remaining hankerings.
