Pleasant evening, not too noisy

I shared a meal at the Haig with four cousins. It was a family reunion for people who have never or rarely seen each other and we wanted to be able to converse. The Haig was excellent for the purpose - easy to find for out of towners, adequate parking near by, a menu which allowed us all to... read more

We thought we would get some nice Italian food, but instead our meals were re-heated in a microwave, which made my prawns, scallops and pasta dry. The best thing on my plate was the tomato, chili, herb sauce. Service was good and friendly. For the prices they charge, we expected freshly cooked meals. Very disapointed!

This place isn't your normal traditional Italian restaurant, they don't cover everything with olive oil, which is what I prefer. The service was average, the young lady working there was lovely, always friendly and smiling, she made the place and is a keeper. The other staff might need to learn some of her hospitality manners. I ordered the steak and... More

Despite some of the reviews on here, our experience at this restaurant was a very good one. The service provided was quick and friendly, and the food was well presented and delicious. What was particularly impressive was that this restaurant was actually open, when so many are closed on a Sunday night. Highly recommended, not just on Sunday nights!

This place is great if you go to bed at 8pm, this is general in Canberra very little open in terms of food after 9 pm. We thought this place attached to a hotel might be open a little longer, we seem to get door slammed in our face rather than saying we close in 5min but can do a... More

Food is good, lots of choices and reasonable priced. If you stay at the hotel you get 10% at the restaurant. Drinks are also reasonably priced.

We left simply feeling sad that we wasted $80. We were seated by a window that had a draft. The drink orders took 15 minutes and a reminder before they arrived. Staff then came and asked if we wanted out side dish to come to table at the same time as our mains. We said yes. They then bought that... More
