“Grossly over rated- a steep decline”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Have never seen a restaurant drop so much in such little time. A totally confused menu, poor service and a an overall waste of such beautiful space, time and money. An icon which has been demolished. I wonder why/

“Saturday Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

A different approach to a Brunch.. You help yourself to the drinks.. A selection of white and red wine are set out and you go and fill your own glass. The starters are laid out in a buffet fashion and then the main courses are chosen from a menu. You are served several mains of your choice and each is on a small plate, this is a good idea as you get to choose tasters of different foods. Desserts and cheese are set out buffet style for you to help yourself. A reasonably priced buffet.

“Affordable Fine Dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

With a beautiful view of the fully lit golf course at night, this is a nice place for exquisite fine dining at relatively reasonable prices for the quality of food on offer. Attention to detail is visible int he menus and execution, and the live flambe stations add that dash of texture to the evening.

Good for both business or pleasure visits. Do book in advance if you hope to sit by the windows with a better view of the golf course.

“5 star dining 'down the golf club'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

I have eaten here a number of times both before and after the revamp... If I have one criticism is that they should send the waiting staff to serve in the spike bar or cut the fairways, as they were very simply abysmal the last evening we ate there. However, that said, nothing can take away the work that goes on in the kitchen to deliver first class cuisine time and time again. Even with the poor service this still gets 5 stars!!!

“Good food, great price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

A pleasant dining experience with an exceptional selection of food options and wines on the Gourmet night. Not fine dining, but good restaurant food.

A little out of the way too, can be a wait for a taxi.
