Goes to show you that sometimes it is best to make up your owned mind. Our experience at this restaurant was fantastic. We eat out a lot and all over the country. From the moment we arrived to when we left we were well looked after by the staff - no obtrusive service and not ignored - just right. It... More

I have given Wild Lotus yet another chance to excel but today was the last time I will be going. The service was fine and the environment warm and comfortable but the food was so very underwhelming. My Red Emperor fillet was obviously frozen and then over cooked . The salad was an uninviting pile of "weeds". The chips were... More

We entered the restaurant on the base that it had quite a few people dining already. The first impression was very positive: a good atmosphere and a very attentive waitress. But that is where it stops: the meals we ordered were tasteless and overpriced. At the same time the owner proved to be over-confident where he absolutely had no reason... More

Personally it has been the best restaurant where I've been during my trip in Australia. Everything was tasteful: wine, meat, entrées, dessert... And about the entrées, I' ve chosen the Turkish bread with dukka dip. It's funny, but I've been inspired reading one of the only two bad reviews of the restaurant.

What a great place to enjoy a great meal. Very close to the Fraser Lodge Holiday Park where we were staying. You have to book as it is very popular. Great menu and very reasonable prices. Staff were very good and attentive. Highly recommended - my wife enjoyed the fish of the day and I really enjoyed the Australian seafood... More

We did not book but were greeted warmly by the host who was friendly and helped us with the menu. I choose slow cooked roast pork belly and my husband choose the chicken breast very dry and overcooked ( I expected that to maybe have crackling but it was a rubbery skin) Both our plates were cold when they arrived...
