We have been to this restaurant on many occasions & we have enjoyed each visit. It is in a good location with great ambience. On this visit we had the usual good service from the friendly courteous staff & we always enjoy the pianist who has a great range of music. The food was excellent & the 4 of us... More

We had a Saturday night dinner and the steaks were pricey and underdone. Service slow and menu unexciting. To be fair it was busy with some large tables. I was a little taken back when they put my wife and I next to a large noisy table when we could have gone elsewhere. I complained and they said the other... More

My son is going through a diet program to identify the source of his stomach cramps. He is lactose intolerant, along with that the doctors feel he may be not digesting certain other sugars as well, eg fructose, so there are a million veg and fruit he cant eat either, simple everyday things like wheat, onion, garlic, mushrooms, cabbage, legumes,...

We have been there with our friends for a birthday and the food was amazing, little high in price. The service was 5 star. I highly recommend this restaurant. Close to west lakes shopping centre.

I can only think after reading the previous reviews that we struck this restaurant on a bad night. Which was a shame as our table of eight was celebrating a birthday. The mains arrived cold and not one of the four steaks was cooked as ordered. The duck was insubstantial, cold and overborne by the excessively citrus flavoured sauce. Due... More

Crusoes judging by the awards on the wall is cruising on past glories. Our planned birthday celebration dinner ( the one time each year we splurge on fine dining) became an exercise in disappointment. The menu was ordinary and unadventurous which can be forgiven if the simple things are done well. Out of three steaks ordered not one was cooked... More

The ambience, the staff and the food make this a great venue to dine in. Lead by Trevor who leads the team and keeps a weather eye on the goings on all adds to make for a memorable evening. To appreciate the sunset wait and book in as late as possible say 1930hrs to witness the view once the sun... More

We visited this restaurant from the Entertainment Book and loved it. It's quiet, the view is fabulous and the service was five star. And to top it off the food was delicious. If I had to improve on anything the mains took a little while to come out, but when you are in good company it's not an issue. Would... More

You won't get out for less than $100 for 2 mains and a bottle of wine, but the food, service, and ambience are all quite good. Decent attire is appropriate.
