Excellent!

We dined here last night and we were more than impressed. Well worth the cost. The setting, food and service were all 5 star. I believe a new chef had started that night and he did a fantastic job. Thanks guys, we will be back.

Tell me how many business in today's economic climate can afford to turn away business? Well it appears this restaurant can. Attempted to dine here one evening for five people only to be turned away as part of the restaurant was closed for a following days function ( fare enough) and they had no tables for our party. Looking around... More

Superb food and wine, friendly, courteous, efficient and professional service. Our waiter was able to advise us wisely re. menu choices and portion sizes - very helpful in Australia!!! A splendid meal for four of us at a reasonable price, and an occasion long to be remembered.

The Old Church Restaurant is situated in the picturesque area of Mt Tambourine which adds to atmosphere of the whole restaurant. There was only one other couple which meant that the place was basically our own with the fireplace going which really set the mood. The food was available in entrée and main size which was a good option so... More

Wonderful food, great service, lovely setting, but serving just too small for us. We had three fantastic courses, but we left wanting something extra to eat. I know french food is traditionally small servings, but I've eaten in Paris recently and the servings at all the restaurants were larger.

Dined at the Old Church last night and it was a night to remember. The food was amazing and service outstanding. I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I have had in a long time. We were a group of four and all were impressed.

My friend and I decided to treat ourselves to our first degustation meal and what a treat it was. We chose a 4 course option and my friend also chose to have a selection of wines with her courses. The food was absolutely extraordinary with service to match. It was not cheap - $85 for the four courses and $115... More

My partner and I dined at the old church last night, and everything was beautiful. We were the only people there, they still open even for just two people. We sat near the fire and talked while our meal was being prepared, even though the fire wasn't going, but there was certainly no need for it. I like that everything... More

Excellent dinner. Go in the winter when you can take advantage of the massive fireplace with a wine on one of the comfy couches. It is expensive but well worth every dollar spent. We had the duck for entree - OMG. Delicious main and desert too cannot remember what else we had as this was in July 2014 when we... More
