Pretty good

Well worth a visit. Steaks are cooked with commendable precision in terms of how you want it. My wife's rump steak, ordered medium rare, was nicely cooked on the outside, with (for her) just the right amount of pink inside. My well done Scotch Fillet was evenly cooked all the way through. The cuts... read more

We have eaten at this Restaurant many, many times during our 6 years in Ballarat. However on our previous visit in November 2015 thought the service wasn't as good as previous visits and thought they may be just having a bad night. However on our visit last night we had a very similar experience and are wondering whether the business... More

Whilst staying in Ballarat just before Christmas we ate here on a Saturday evening. I had made a booking online, however upon arrival was informed that there was no record of our reservation. It was very busy, however a table was found for us, albeit not in a very good position (just behind and to the right of the reception... More

Portions not to satisfaction. One measly little sweet potato as a side for $6.50. I can buy a kilo of sweet potatoes across the road. $8 for a crown. Then it was $ 68 for 3 "racks" of pork ribs. Each rack as big as my hand which tasted like it was drenched in some citrus sauce for fish. Also... More

Nice steak and other dishes, unfortunately the air conditioning wasn't up to the conditions. Also, drinks were not all that cold. Overall a good experience, but should have been great for the price.

It was hot outside so l started with an Asahi beer which came promptly. I had the rib eye on the bone 400g served with large potato in the jacket with sour cream. On the side I had a Greek salad which was very nice with lots of olives and feta cheese. The complimentary bread was welcome. Altogether a lovely... More

Absolutely one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had! I have been here in the past and although prices are on the expensive side, I found this time around they were exorbitant considering how much the serving sizes have decreased, particularly salads, dessert and the miniscule slice of bread (see attached photo) - the butter was almost the...

We ordered steaks 1 medium rare, 1 medium, the one requested rare came out over done, the one requested medium came out rare. After 10 minutes trying to get the attention of the wait staff we asked for the rare one to be cooked more, the waitress claimed that this was medium for the restaurant, I am not sure that... More

We went there on Sat 24/10/2015. I had booked on the phone and a call back confirmed the date and time requested. We arrived at the time I had requested only to be told you are late, and said very rudely to me. I said no we are on time (7.30pm). Should have left then and there. The place was... More

My steak was just done perfect medium. This steakhouse must take 5 stars for serving my steak EXACTLY and PERFECTLY as ordered. And I didn't mind paying top dollar for the steak experience. However, we were a little surprised at the overall meal cost when you must then pay for all other additions to your plate and sides. The food... More
