Great spot, good food, reasonable, service not the best but OK. Far superior to the Chiswick in the Art Gallery across the road.

Stopped by for a quick lunch while visiting the Gardens, Mrs Macquarie's Chair, Art Gallery area. We both had corn fritters which were delicious and there was a good range of choices. Restaurant is licensed so perfect for relaxing. So nice sitting outside among the trees on a beautiful day, though you could sit inside if you prefer. Friendly staff.

Loved dinner in Manly. Good tapas and mains, with an excellent wine selection. We took the fast ferry from Circular Quay and the slow boat back. The weather was warm and we had great views of the Opera House and Bridge on our return.

This was once a fabulous place for an elegant meal, tablecloths, wine glasses and good food, looking out through trees over a wide stretch if grassland and playing fields yet just five minutes walk from the city. Now, the restaurant has moved to the back, and is more a fast food service than a restaurant, and the delightful setting at... More

Located right across the road from the Art Gallery we enjoyed three courses and wine. The food was beautifully prepared and of the highest quality. The serves were on the large side so three courses was a lot of food, fortunately we could walk it off on our visit to the art gallery. I would seriously consider booking the restaurant... More

The service was exceptionally slow, particularly as they were not very busy. But the food was of very good quality, the surroundings pleasant and the service good, but as already mentioned, very slow. We had the Winterlicious special - two courses plus wine for $40 each. Highly recommended, if you can afford the time...

We stopped for a quick bite while walking at the botanic gardens. The pancakes were great and the big breakfast was huge. They had a goodie bag for my young daughter to amuse herself. Would come back.

This is the second time we've been to the Art Gallery over the past month and have enjoyed brunch at this venue. We ordered off the breakfast menu (lunch kicks in at noon) and with various coffees, juices and a bowl of their lovely chips with rosemary salt it worked out at $30 a head on both occasions. Very nice... More

We held a business meeting with 75 people for breakfast. Venue is great but the food was plain at best. In such an amazing location that was a real pity. Service by staff was unobtrusive but not overly friendly.

Lunch was a set menu 2courses for $40 with a glass of wine. Entree was okay but only 2 of us had it. Fish for main was dry and served on timber board which was unsuitable and stupid. Dessert was heavy and most of us left at least half on plate. While having a birthday lunch others were in restaurant... More
