Great coffee and a great $4 price to match it. The coffee card also only requires 4 coffee and the 5th is free. The snack range is also satisfactory.

Fast, delicious, friendly service and great decor. It is really great that they have a good cafe in front of their fine dining restaurant. Ideal for quick business meetings with no road cone access and plenty of parking.

Was a pleasant area although a little noisy at that time early evening with after work crowds was not unpleasant We opted for The entertainment guide special Of two mains... More

Disappointed with the morning tea here recently. Walked in the door to a very busy cafe and uncovered wholemeal date and savoury scones etc sitting on cooling racks on the front counter They had all ready been there awhile as cool and really should have been covered.I would have preferred not to have eaten one but there were no muffins...

The greeting for late dinner on a Thursday night was friendly and welcoming and, aside from forgetting our second drinks order, remained friendly and efficient. My initial disappointment that the Beef Cheeks had been replaced by Braised Shortrib vanished instantly I tasted the shortrib and similarly my husbands pork was apparently fabulous. However, the desserts didn't live up to the... More

I had heard so many really good things about Chillingworth Road that I suppose I had set myself up for a little bit of disappointment- I was expecting a new favourite and an unforgettable experience. What we found was really nice food- but not breathtaking. Don't get me wrong, this place is good, its just not as spectacular as it... More

What a wonderful evening. I went with my parents, we had the 6 course menu, and not one dish disappointed. So delicious, perfect flavour and texture combinations. Friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. Wine matches were fabulous. Definitely recommend for a special night out. Most enjoyable of evenings.

we had the full 8 course with matching wines on a Saturday night. Terrific meal and service. Great staff who explained the wines and food and happily answered our questions. All the courses were fabulous including 2 desserts. A great meal with friends.

I went with my wife and booked the tasting menu. I usually love this style of menu for its presentation, use of seasonal produce and the chance for the chef's to show some creative flair, while continuing to surprise and wow you through the course of the menu. I really didn't think tonight's offering did this for us. We went... More
