Food was great. Had to get up and walk over to get water from the jug. Very expensive wine which you can get for $22 at the shops was $60. The food was very expensive as well.

Fish dish was superb. Desserts were very disappointing - I sent the first back- raw rather than baked figs with honeycomb and freeze dried bits that stuck in your teeth and then a peach dish. Again, peaches had had five seconds of blow torch, were a bit dry, and were surrounded by puffed wheat and various crumbs.

Brilliant food using local ingredients, with a good range of excellent local wines, beautifully presented in a delightful setting. A lovely dining experience in peaceful and historic location on the ANU campus.
