    We went for Monday lunch and we were told that none of the fish meals were available.As there was smoked salmon in breakfast, a sandwich, an entree and a lunch course barramundi - it was very disappointing !

    Lovely food and staff, also a beautiful setting. We were there for lunch at 1pm and were a bit sad as they were completely sold out of desserts which we would have liked after our meal. Hopefully the chef will have more prepared now that the weather is warming up.

    Really love the stables charm and atmosphere. The menu selection is great, however the service at peak times can be lacking. Unfortunately the venue lacks sound proofing, so inside it is exceedingly noisy when busy and often diners are speaking in their loudest voice. Would be great if they fix this up inside with some padded paneling on the roof and under tables.

    This place is a beautiful hidden gem - I've been here multiple times and they never disappoint. Food is yum and French, service is good too. They are at their best service when the restaurant is full, something you don't always see.

    Food is generally very good. Excellent presentation. A little disappointed that it was still only midday and the specials were all sold out.

    There were a number of dishes from the menu not available although it was midday Friday which was somewhat disappointing as these were the items we had selected for a birthday celebration. The service was very good.

    Great brunch spot in South Yarra. Eat outside and go for a walk through the gardens afterwards!

    High tea food was dry, lacking in variety,tea cups were dirty. This could be such an amazing experience if the food was improved.

    Although the ambience can be nice, on the day we went, it was hot and the air con was not coping! The noise level was awful; so bad, that we had to really lean in to hear each other speak In balance, we would not go back unless the weather suited sitting outside.

    Lovely set up with beautiful gardens to walk through . Food was ok but not great. Cakes on offer were not so great . Need to do waffles or pancakes or something like that as sweet option . Service was excellent.

    Delicious breakfast but prices expensive for very small serves. Staff were lovely and location tranquil. You can walk around the ground which are beautiful.

    Great place for an alfresco, casual carefree dining experience, just like that Lou Reed song Perfect Day, has that same vibe.

    Taking my mum out for her birthday, turned out to be a total disaster. We waited for a full hour for a salad and salmon to served, yet people who sat down after us had been served and left, yet no one approached us and asked if we were ok! It was only after we asked 3 times that someone actually said they were busy and then offered a complimentary drink which we ended up being charged for !! Would I take my mum back, or more importantly, would she want to go back NO!! Sorry Mum for a disappointing lunch
