My wife and I went here for the first time. Service and food was very good. The atmosphere is also worth commenting on as it was nice and relaxing. We could here each other speak. The background noise was low. Great place for dinner.

Great winter special $39 for 3 courses. Several choices for mains and dessert. Lovely staff and service. Quiet but lovely. Just a bit cold but can't wait to try them in summer on the balcony.

We commenced our meal with the minestrone soup. Obviously the chef had played rugby in Italy - it was the real deal and delicious. The next course was the slow cooked steak. The chef must have played some rugby in one of Australia's prime beef farming areas. Our slow cooked steaks were tasty, tender and cooked to perfection. Our chef... More

A Sunday evening in July and this restaurant was very quiet. We had the fixed price menu of chicken soup served with a hot bread roll & butter, whole barramundi & vegetables followed by an apple crumble & creme brûlée. Overall the food was fine although the main course could have been hotter. But the wait between main course &... More

Their seafood platter was to die for nd the price excellent. The restaurant itself is looking a little dated nd could do with a complete overall. Staff are friendly nd attentive. Seating is available outside on the balcony with views of the river

Having stayed at the El Paso and dined at the restaurant I can highly recommend the food on offer. To date I have enjoyed dining my way through the menu and each dish is a culinary delight. Some of the harsh reviews I have read make me wonder if people are reviewing the same restaurant - the staff are friendly... More

Absolutely love this restaurant, I have eaten here quite a few times and never have been let down. I am extremely picky when I eat out and can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised that every entree and main was better than I initially hoped. Would be here a lot more if my diet allowed lol! Certainly made my last... More
