Lovely location but it rained when we visited so we sat inside. The way the food is organised is that it is just brought to the table on platters for people to share. There was so much food it was almost embarrassing and almost whole platters of sandwiches were left. We just could not eat it. I travelled in a... More

A fabulous location on a mild day -- on a hot or cold day, then definitely inside, unless you can get one of the umbrella'ed tables. We had the deck cafe menu -- great beef sliders, mild chicken curry in clay pot, and quinoa and beetroot salad. Good chips and OK coffee. The service, although pleasant, was perfunctory. Waitpeople having... More

Breakfast outside on a slightly overcast spring morning in Canberra. What a great location with a fantastic outlook. Our waitress deserved a medal - very attentive & literally ran everywhere to look after her customers. The menu was interesting & we both enjoyed our dishes along with a bottle of bubbly. Someone needs to spend a few dollars on new... More

We had finished at Floriade for the day & decided to go to the restaurant that we could see nearby to have a more civilised cup of coffee with a view of the lake. To our amazement we were told that we could only have our coffee in a take away cup.Though disappointed that we wouldn't have the marvellous view... More

We had a party of 28 people last Sunday at 10 am at The Deck at Regatta Point and were a little apprehensive as to how The Deck would cope after reading some of Trip Advisor's negative reviews. I would like to refute these negative reviews. Somehow the staff coped with our large group milling around, managed to get all... More

I have been here once before last year and had a terrible experience, huge line to order but after revisiting last week I would definitely recommend! We just had to take a seat & enjoy the view & the staff served us from the table!

Next door, the children can play with Lego, look at the lake and see Canberra displays. Then, come here for lunch and a great warm, relaxed area inside. Good for families. Friendly Saturday service.

Passing through Canberra we wanted to stop and eat somewhere by LBG to take in the view and found the Deck. While the view delivered the service didn't. It would be ok if you wanted to have leisurely lunch but having arrived at noon we didn't expect it to be too busy (and it wasn't) but it still took some... More

One of the best outlooks in Canberra overlooking the lake and back towards Kingston. Food and service is first class.
