    The restaurant was very beautiful itself. However, we had to wait over 35-40mins for our entree and over 30mins for our mains. We were booked in at 7:30, and left at 9:40. for the pricing of $198 for food, it was not worth it as the slow service was very long. No one checked up on us regularly and had forgotten about our entree. The food however was beautifully delicious and well presented. Service and lack of customer skills from the wait staff were a let down and disappointment.

    The food is good, however the waiting time and poor service made me dissapointed of the Special Christmas dinner. We arrived at 6:30 pm and the starters were served at 8 pm. The wait wasn't that much fun for our kids. By 8:30 pm I left as the main dish still wasn't served. The restaurant looks nice and clean and had proper Covid measures and restrictions in place.

    Great food & menu selection, caring staff but terribly under staffed. Our waiter was caring and suggested a few dishes to us which we liked. But the got so busy with just two people serving the whole restaurant. We were with any drinks for half the meal.

    Food was very fresh and uniquely prepared. We went with the paired wines which perfectly matched the flavours of the food. Spoil yourself.

    The matire d was super helpful! Though we were late, but he didn't give us any pressure to finish up and leave. It was four of us so we get to try all four different items per course, had to say the dessert was the peak of the dinner, though they were not presented as pretty as they meant to be (considering we were the last table there and we ordered four different items lol, we accpet that) but the flavour are still beautiful! Perfect touch to wrap up our night. Highly recommend the popcorn entree.

    The food was great. The service lacked a bit in terms of precision and timeliness, but once the problems were pointed out to them, the staff absolutely bent over backwards to make up for it, including giving us a free glass of some very nice wine!

    Amazing food and beautiful venue. Service was a bit slow for how quiet the restaurant was but overall it was lovely

    Unfortunately I felt this was a let down from last visit. My partner was disappointed with his main. The service was slow. The sides came out after we finished our meal so too late to eat and enjoy. The restaurant was also unable to accommodate providing mash potatoes, noting they did swap vegetable sides for an alternative to what was served with one main. Disappointing given it was an anniversary celebration.

    This restaurant aspires to be fine dining but misses out on so many levels, subdued lighting is too subdued, limited wine list of better than average wines but no vintages on the menu, service was the pits although to fair a number of staff were off (they would have done better to close the restaurant), no side dishes on the menu but are available, etc.

    The menu was well well constructed, innovative and flexible. Service was charming. Book early so that the wait for dishes is not long.

    Dinner and service were absolutely fantastic, we really enjoyed it. The only thing I would suggest is to put a sign the name of the restaurant on the road and outside the hotel so people going just for dinner know where they are. We weren't sure we were on the right place until we parked and ask for instructions. Thank you

    Nice atmosphere, log fire, good food - we had the 3 course option including s lovely chocolate and honeycomb dessert. Poor signage, was hard to find the street entry and also hard to spot where the restaurant was after driving up to the main buildings.

    We had mixed reviews at this restaurant. I had my heart set on the duck but after we were seated, we were told they had a power problem overnight and some items were missing from the menu including the duck, crème brulee and they had limited supplies of the pasta. We end up going for just the 2 course dinner option. We were told there was no bread due to the power problems which seemed surprising since we were having dinner but they manage to find something at the end. There was an amuse bouche which was very nice - they even changed mine as I was pregnant which I appreciated. I had the scallop and my husband had the prawns, both of which was lovely. I had the pork belly and my husband the crispy skin barramundi. Sadly the skin for the barramundi was chewy instead of crispy and he was disappointed with the main overall - could have been more flavorsome. My pork belly was quite good though. There were complimentary side dishes including roasted potatoes (quite nice) and a green salad (this wasn't that good) but it was free which was a nice. It's a nice dining space for dinner - good décor and if you went during the day, it would be quite nice too. However, I would probably say there are other places you can try also.

    The food and service was generally very good. I really enjoyed the presentation of each dish and the food was cooked as requested, was very well done and served in good time. Unfortunately what took the shine away from an otherwise really nice meal was it took about 10 mins to be seated then it took a further 30 mins for someone to get to our table just to get started.. outside if that the place is really nice and the food was excellent.
