Good quality breakfast

We stayed at the Treasury Hotel and Casino and had breakfast there twice. The food is beautifully cooked and presented. There is a continental $26 or hot menu or a full breakfast of $36 per person. A nice selection of food. Do check your account as they have made mistakes on both days.

Our Treasury Hotel experience was capped off by having our Australia Day breakfast in their Lab Bar and Restaurant . We had a High Tea there back in December, and to our surprise, we had the same waiter David , look after our meal this time too !! David, like all the food and beverage staff are most welcoming, polite,... More

We stayed at the hotel from xmas day 205 for 4 days. The Lab Bar was the only restaurant open for 2 days and we ate there on the first night and were surprised at how average the food was for a prestige hotel. Maybe the best staff had xmas off - not sure. But, in our experience - look... More

Pre-casino meal with family over the xmas holidays. The Lab promises a fine dining experience but delivers an end product that is really rather average in the opinion of our table of 6. The surly service didn't help and the food was just well, average. Even the after dinner coffees seems to miss the mark. Promises much, but needs to... More

Slow service, lots of happy staff chatting behind the Bar, generally mediocre, tiny portions, over priced... Go to the Casino suite of restaurants for a better choice, but remember, it's bit of a walk...... I am told the place jumps during the week, so I'm sure my review is very specific to a slow Easter weekend!

Attended this establishment on a Saturday night, for one of my favourite restaurants I was disappointed. The waiter I had was French and struggled to keep up, I understand it was busy but the other waiters looked much better. My steak was really fatty and was rear In some parts but med in other parts plus ordinary flavour. They tried... More

Had a fantastic evening last weekend at The Lab with everything going smoothly.Our server (Christina) was outstanding and a credit to her training and dedication – she offered factual advice on food and wine and nothing was too much problem which is good as my wife can be a bit picky on occasion.Our entrees and main meals (the wife had...

First time visit under this brand & not disappointed. Did not set out to spend $200 for dinner but it was worth it. Steak was cooked to perfection but I should have had my wife's duck !, does that happen to you ? Paired with a salad bowl & great NZ Pinot. Mustard was offered in original French containers, a...

Food at this restaurant is always perfect. Flavours, textures, presentation. Pork belly for main was amazing. Juicy, cooked just right and perfect crackling. Venison pie was also very good. It is a bit dear with mains around the $40 mark but if you wanna make sure your meal won't disappoint, this is the place to be.
