It was an expensive meal and nothing really exciting about it. The steak was cooked well. The service was only ok but the place and people just lack that special something that make a restaurant that you want to go back to. There was just no atmosphere and we would not go there again. If you want to pay the... More

Great food and service, the waitress knew her stuff and we weren't kept waiting, but not rushed at all. Ate there over 25 years ago and loved it, same still applied today.

If you're looking for truly local cuisine with a luxury twist you should be eating here. The pork belly with kumura mash is to die for and deserts very tasty., Really great wine selection too. Sit undercover on the decking and watch the fish and giant eels below. The service is fantastic and great local ambiance. 5 stars!

This was our return visit to the Flame Tree at Muri and we were not disappointed with the food. The menu offers a selection that should appeal to most tastes. Look out for the fresh water eels that inhabit the pond - one of which is over 19 years old! We will be back to sample the food again on... More

Ok meal but quite expensive for what you get! And charged $6.50 for water cause they give you a bottle but don't tell you that!

We had the tuna here for dinner and thought it was incredibly delicious. Yes, it was expensive, but the portion was also very large. I don't consider myself a small portion eater and we both took home leftover tuna and were able to eat it for lunch the next day. I took away one star just because the atmosphere is... More
