We had a function in the private dining room, which was perfect for our intimate event, but unfortunately it is a closed room with no views or windows. Having said that the room is nice, and allowed us to to stand up and deliver speeches without all the noise of the other diners in the restaurant.
The service from our private waiter was amazing- he was very attentive and always greeted our requests with a smile. The hostess at the front of the restaurant was a bit cold and not very friendly when we settled the bill- a smile would have been appreciated. The rest of the staff were very friendly and professional.
We had a 3 course set menu, and a beverage package. For entree I had the PRAWNS sauteed spencer gulf, white cheese polenta, compressed watermelon, jalapeno peppers, roast corn salad, crispy pancetta, and it was delicious- beautiful firm prawns and interesting flavours. For mains I had steak with various sides- asparagus, salad etc. The meat was beautiful - very tender (but not the best I have had for the price). I was not offered a sauce or any condiments for my meat which was disappointing. Others had the GNOCCHI handmade potato, chestnut cream, chestnut mushrooms, roasted salsify, parsley and parmesan- although nice, they were not blown away. The brioche that was served to the table was very delicious and sweet- an interesting choice of bread but fantastic! For dessert I had CHOCOLATE warm couverture ganache, fresh mint ice cream, raspberry mousse, chocolate cookie- which was served to the table, then warm chocolate was poured over and caused the shell ball to melt which was amazing- the mint ice cream was beautiful and refreshing.
Unfortunately we were charged extra for still and sparkling water even though we had a beverage package, which was surprising- this could have been my misunderstanding- but I found that unusual. The wine in the package was beautiful and complimented the meals well.
The night was very enjoyable and the food was good, however I was really looking forward to the night and left feeling just a little disappointed.
