I expected more from this restaurant. I found the experience disappointing. The food was average as was the service. I would not eat here again.

We arrived without a booking on a Thursday night and were lucky to get one of the last two tables. The setting in the old treasury building is quite magnificent.

Food was lovely and well prepared. Ambiance was not quite what we were after and waiters kept trying to put everyone into the same little area even though the restaurant was mostly empty.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Treasury Hotel overnight to celebrate his birthday. We had dinner in the Lab Bar and Restaurant and were not disappointed.

Chose the lab bar for our anniversary dinner as we had dined here once 5+ years ago & had an enjoyable experience. We had the scallops & pork belly entree & barramundi & lamb for mains which were all very good & shared the chocolate desert - yum! The bar made some great cocktails for us including an expresso martini... More
