This was supposed to be a special seafood buffet, the oyster and prawn were fresh but crabs were not so fresh again. My favorite steamed salmon was still missing. The price was increased from $55 to $65 per guest the obvious improvement was desserts. There is room for further improvement. The service was excellent.

Promenade Restaurant

Glenelg

My wife and I used to be very regular customers of this restaurant coming here most Saturdays until they made a big change on layout, food varieties, reduction of major food items. We and our friends stopped coming for at least 8 months until a few weeks ago when a hostess assumed me that they have much improved. We decided to give it a trial again. Indeed they have improved very impressively. It is really a very fine dinning restaurant. The most impressive is service. Cortina and Waitering staff really made us feel coming home. The dinning room became spacious, clean, bright, tables covered with Snow White and crisp clothes. Food are mostly fresh and yummy with the exception of crabs which were not so fresh. I think the improvements will bring us back again.

Change for the worst? Yes indeed. My wife and I have been very regular customers of Promenade for a long time and have written many excellent reviews for this restaurant. We also experienced recent major changes in the restaurant including the executive chefs and food display. Two Saturdays ago I already felt a significant drop in the quality of food. I made a small suggestion in my review and decided not to have dinner there last Saturday. I could not believe it could go downhills so rapidly. So we give it a try again last night. Very unfortunately, apart from oyster, crabs and prawn which were provided by the seafood suppliers, most of the cooked food were awful! I couldn't see and good taste and quality! As it stands it can only be rated as a 2 Star restaurant. I do sincerely hope it will improve back to its old glory!

Being a very very regular customer, I should be more qualified to make another comments. As I said a few months ago, I ahve be very happy with Promenade's seafood, warm dishes and services. However, having been a regular customer for so long, I really felt tired of their warm dishes because they have hardly changed for more than a year. As my wife and I walked into the restaurant yesterday, we were pleased to see the display setting has changed and the food area became more orderly and spacious to move around. The food and desserts have changed and definitely tasted better. However, I was very disappointed that the mixed fruit tray and the steam salmon disappeared. I regard these two items are the healthiest food among all. I sincerely hope the executive chef will bring these two items back for the customers.

We have been very regular customers of the restaurant for a long time and have felt a bit tired of the cold and hot food. Although they have been changed in recent weeks, I don't feel the change is better. May be the kitchen has run out of ideas. However, the seafood are still very good and fresh. in particular, oyster and prawn. .

The Currant Shed

Mclaren Flat

We had been to this restaurant about 6 years ago. But it has a new owner and new name now and things have been much improved. The restaurant with its orange orchid and green is beautifully situated in the middle of a large vineyard. Its settings are beautifully and naturally blended into the vineyard environment. The menu is unique and we were very pleasantly surprised with every course they offered us. Every dish was delicious and decorated like a special piece of art work. The service was friendly, warm and excellent. We were sitting outdoor under the pergola with pretty vines and mild autumn sun. It was so enjoyable.

Being regular customers to this restaurant for so long, we have been feeling a bit tired of the variety of food they offered every weekend seafood dinner. We were very pleased that the kitchen staff prepared some new dishes that we enjoyed eating very much. We invited our family doctor and his wife to the dinner with us. They also enjoyed very much. We had a wonderful time.

We always enjoy the fresh seafood, splendid dessert and excellent services provided by the duty manager, waitering and kitchen staff who always take extra mile to look after us. Tonight the two kitchen staff named Annie Nie and Minh Ha provided us most warm and caring service exceeded our expectation. Without asking, they prepared our favorite fruits, dessert and coffee for us. With this kind of excellent services who would not come back all the time.
