    Staff were wonderful, welcoming and very considerate of the elderly relatives who accompanied us. The choice and quality of food and drinks was excellent and represented good value for money. Always enjoy the views from the restaurant and a visit to the Arboretum shop and bonsai display following a meal.

    Excellent venue to watch a storm roll over Canberra. Service very quick and servers were great at ensuring our order and meals were taken and delivered before a larger group were served. A fixed price menu is good and choice nice. Wine list small but quality. Overall a great lunch

    Service very accommodating. Fantastic view from table next to window. Food a little hit and miss. The braised beef dish was to die for as was the teriyaki salmon. The duck dish unfortunately did not reach the tenderness of the beef dish and the vegetables - to my taste - were undercooked. My dessert was underwhelming. A tiny scoop of slightly melted, albeit admittedly delicious ice cream, with 4 small pieces of meringue shards! The Apple Mille-feuille was a more substantial serving with an intricate decoration.

    It was Father’s Day . Busy. The kids didn’t like their food. One plate of pasta sent back due to being cold. Like, refrigerated cold. Was replaced without fuss. The service staff were lovely.
