Excellent food in one of the best dining rooms in Australia

We celebrated our first anniversary (of meeting) here ;-) and it was one of the best meal and service experiences we've had. The food was very rich but delicious and I'd recommend it on service alone but the location and lights and ambience were just spot on for our romantic night.

Spirit House is set in a beautiful, peaceful garden & tables are arranged around the small lake. All the food is beautifully presented & very appetizing. One of the dishes we chose was their signature dish - a whole baby schnapper. This looks amazing, but is quite strongly flavoured, so needs to be accompanied by some milder dishes. The dishes...

We had a dinner with friends who are all Asian expats so they know good food. We had the banquet menu and every dish was a hit. The coconut soup, the betel leaves, the scallops, the tamarind fish, the pork belly were all fantastic and the portions were just right. The desserts were original and innovative and disappeared even when... More

This is a must visit restaurant! Great service, lovely ambience and, above all, incredible food. Not the cheapest spot but absolutely amazing. We love it!

Annette Fear instructed our cooking class. She was absolutely amazing. We learnt so much from her. The table was set beautifully with wine glasses etc. to try our dishes. We felt like we were going out to a beautiful restaurant. We didn't even have to wash up! I would do again in a heartbeat.

This was our first time and glad we saved it to celebrate lunch for my 60th birthday. The atmosphere and service were fabulous and we had the banquet and loved every mouthful. I'm taking an overseas visitor there for lunch on Easter Sunday and its nice to feel confident that the restaurant will live up to its reputation.

We dined here for our anniversary last night. As locals we have been hearing rave reviews for years now. The venue is stunning (except for mozzies) and the service was great. Menu is very very limited. It's obviously quality food but we were actually under-impressed. Our entrees were wonderful (pork belly and lamb ribs) but our mains were nothing special.... More

One of the most enjoyable dining experiences that I have ever had. It's not just about the food, which is absolutely amazing, it really is about the experience. We took my parents here as a Christmas treat and spent over 3 hours having an amazing dining experience set in the most tranquil of environments. Yes, it is expensive, but a... More
