Food average but nice where we expected more from a 1 hat restaurant. Staff friendly We had lots of staff serving us but if they had commicated they wouldn't have needed to ask us the same questions. We had 4 wine glasses on table & until we stacked them up in a group were they taken away (but the 3rd... More

For the price you are paying for the degustation I would expect the service to match. Unfortunately this was not the case, glass empty most of the night and always had to ask for more water. Quite rushed, it felt like as we put our forks down, the next course was on its way. Chipped glass on arrival. The food... More

One of the most amazing degustation experiences my husband and I have ever had. Each course looked like a piece of art on the plate and tasted divine. The whole experience from atmosphere to service, wine and the quality of the meal was perfect. The best birthday lunch we have had in a long time.

Katers would one of the places to choose from. We had a degustation dinner as part of a Luxury Escapes package and three breakfasts during our stay. The Dinner was excellent - variety, good sized portions in the 5 courses and well served. Breakfasts comprise a lot of local produce (Robertson Sausages, Mittagong Mushrooms) and not a powered egg in... More

Did the high tea thing mid-week and felt like royalty. We had a reception room to ourselves, comfy sofas, lots of delicious treats and beautiful grounds and vistas.

Husband and I had the $109 pp degustation dinner on Tuesday night. Expected great things but were severely disappointed. The menu was overly complex consisting of too many flavours trying to compete with each other. We felt that it was an example of a chef's indulgence and experimentation at our expense and at $109 pp it isn't an experience we'd... More

Hello TerryleaR, Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent visit to Katers Restaurant. I am disappointed to hear that our style of food was not to your liking. We do offer a more simple style of food in our lounge areas by the open fires, perhaps this would be worth considering if you visit the property in the future.... More

Beautifully presented breakfast which felt very different from the typical hotel buffet breakfast. Dinner was excellent, with an emphasis on fresh local produce, the scallops were outstanding.

We visited for Sunday lunch. The restaurant is nicely decorated, and has a nice ambience and atmosphere. However, our table for six was very wobbly, which was a distraction throughout the meal. The food was very good. Very nicely presented and very tasty. What was lacking was service. We had to constantly ask for our water and wine to be... More

We have eaten in some of Sydney's top restaurants and this really didn't compare. Our visit here was a little faulty towersesque! The waiter forgot our drink order and brought us our bill while we thought we were still waiting for our desserts- he hadn't put the order through. The best thing was the complimentary creme broulee that he eventually... More

The attention to detail was excellent, as was the overall dining experience. Our meals were delicious and were very artistic on our plates (seems to be the rage at the moment). Serving sizes were appropriate as we wanted to order from each course and enjoy the flavours. Wine prices weren't too high if you didn't go overboard, and they let... More
