Went here with a group of friends recently and were disappointed with the whole experience. The menu had changed from a normal pub menu to a type of Tapas but instead of little shared plates they suggested sharing main courses. The food took forever to come out; they must have asked us if we... read more

Not surprised that there were only our group and 2 others as we discovered the tapas menu has driven out the crowd that used to eat out here. The food was tasty but stingy would be kind. I am a small eater and had to try and fill up on bread. The tapas plates were priced as main courses $20... More

We had booked a table for 9 last Sunday as a grand finale to 70th birthday celebrations. How unfortunate that Mt Erica does not serve a usual Sunday lunch menu. Previously we had visited for a Sunday lunch and had a great roast, so we thought this would be a suitable venue for our gathering. Don't visit if you want... More

I'd expected good things from this hotel - it looked nice, staff seemed friendly, however my salad with the chicken parmigiana was so small there was only one tiny piece of tomato! And when I pointed out how small it was the manager told me it was the waitress' fault because she should have asked me if I wanted extra... More

The Mt Erica used to be my local hotel, and it used to have good reasonably priced food. After a long absence, we decided to try the Mt Erica again for dinner. Unfortunately we were disappointed. The ambiance was very pleasant and the service was generally good, but the food was generally small and expensive. We had several issues. My... More

If you want a great pub meal or just a good spot for a few drinks then this is the place for you! The lounge or bistro area serves great quality food with a large menu to suit all tastes and is also family-friendly. The food is not so much gastro pub style but more an upmarket and high quality...

We had lunch here last Sunday. It is now the second time in the last month that we have dined here. On both occasions the food was very good and the servings were large and generous. I had the shanks which were very tasty and would recommend. They have an open fire burning and plenty of seating.

We visited for a meal with a group of 6 and liked the ambience of this restaurant. Our first impressions were galvanised by some really great service from helpful staff. Our food experience though was quite mixed within the group. Those that stuck with the pub basics, parma's or beer battered fish thought the food was tasty and good value... More

Went for dinner on a week night with my partner. It was their $15 steak night- he had this, but you need to add $3 for any sauce you have, so really it's $18 steak night. Cant complain about the value of this meal which came with chips and veg. However, I ordered the lamb which was done 2 ways... More
