Our waitress was Michaela (sorry if the spelling is wrong) and she was great - lovely personality and really helpful. I had the twice cooked pork belly and apart from the fact that there wasn't enough crackling it was great. The vegetables were cooked just right, still slightly crisp. The ice cream sundae was a bit disappointing; just ice cream... More

Smoked Salmon pizza here is divine. Occasionally venturing out for dinner in our home town with pizza on our minds, stellar has again been our choice to dine. Friendly staff and great company.

We enjoyed our meal at Stellar. The lamb and the scotch filet were really nice. The service was below expectations. The waitress got the wrong wine... Changed the bottle. And then got my order wrong too. It became quite funny in the end. But the quality of the food was great.

We were able to order ahead of time and they didn't mind at all our last minute changes and special requests. The meals were excellent and all arrived at the same time. Thanks so much to... More

It was a Sunday afternoon, just a little after what I suspect would have been the main lunch hour rush when we turned up for a bite of lunch. We were very well looked after by the waiting staff who informed us about the various choices available. Drinks were ordered, menu choices made and everything worked smoothly. We were not... More
