Very satisfying lunch

Visited with my wife for her pending birthday. Seated within minutes of arriving and presented with assorted menus and glasses of chilled water. As we had not visited since last year, we played safe and ordered a shared entrée and a main each. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her crumbed fish, and my... read more

I recently visted with a large groups teenage boys and some (mad) parents who were accompanying the boys and the staff and food were all equally outstanding. We shared starters and had our own mains and all the food was excellent. The quantities were good, staff very switched on and the setting is lovely. The wine list was very reasonably... More

Such an amazing waters edge view, but that's where amazing stops. Very ordinary food and less than ordinary service for a more than ordinary price. Place looks quite shabby and the rest rooms could do with a good scrub. Very disappointing.

Slow inattentive service- like warm food- good money for poor food- mains took 1 hour and steak was only just warm- waitress did ask how my meal was, but had only just received it so suggested she came back in a little while- I would have then told her that my steak wasn't hot- but she never returned! Dessert took... More

We recently went to the Vat 2 for lunch with friends. We have been there many times and have never had a bad experience there. The food is always very well presented and extremely tasty. The beverages are nice and cold. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Vat 2 has beautiful views. I really recommend this restaurant.

Always a good night at Vat2 - we are regulars. Food is always delicious, service is wonderful and staff very attentive, view is great and atmosphere/ambience always welcoming and perfect. Always a favourite. Jenny and the team do a great job. We look forward to our evenings at Vat2.

Terrible food, oysters were clearly cheap frozen oysters the shell was crumbling so you would get bits of shell in your mouth, pork belly was disgusting no flavour and fish of the day was over cooked and salty

We were a group of six girlfriend's out for a Sunday lunch and were very disappointed in the food. Out of six meals only two were nice. In the others - prawns were not cleaned or cooked well in the pasta, risotto was very salty, whiting was bland. I had the pork belly and scallops - the scallops were watery... More

Had a surprise party for my husband, organised at the last minute. Jenny and her staff were amazing, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel so special. The wait person assigned to look after us, was so attentive. Have not had better service ever! Our food was delicious and kept coming. Nothing was too much trouble. We... More
