“A Great Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

The meal was beautiful, very creative, with lots of yummy snacks at the beginning. Service was really good and the atmosphere was very warm and cosy in a beautiful old building. It exceeded all expectations and was well worth the trip.

“Memorable dining experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

One of the most enjoyable dining experiences ever! Decor of the restaurant is very rustic, with all the tables adequately spaced apart that you can't hear other people's conversation. We had the Du Jour menu which stretched over 4 hours. The chefs were very accommodating with specific dietary requirements and took the time to explain each dish! The paired wines were excellent and couldn't fault the service! Will definitely be returning again to feast on the Discovery menu and to sample more wines! Highly recommended to anyone wishing to celebrate special occasions or a birthday! Thank you for the amazing experience!

“A special occasion experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

This is very much a special occasion restaurant, unless you have deep pockets, but the experience is very special. Allow plenty of time for the full benefit, our lunch took 4 hours and the time seemed to fly.

The first thing that struck us was the ambience of the restaurant sited in an old building beautifully renovated and modernised. Tables are well spaced to allow staff easy access and provide some privacy for diners. We were advised that sittings are limited to 28-32 diners, depending on configuration, and the area could easily accommodate twice that number.

We had the full degustation lunch with matched wines and couldn't fault any of the matches. The food was excellent - different techniques, styles and presentation were used to enhance the overall experience. Having said this there were no "Blumenthal moments", everything looked and tasted as you expected it would/should.

Because of the extent of the menu all courses are either small tasting plates or shared plates. We started with 7 small tastes accompanied by local sparkles, a palate cleanser of mixed juices was followed by courses of Kingfish, Tuna, Kohl Rabi, Ox tongue and Pork each accompanied by a different Hentley Farm wine. Another palate cleanser was then followed by a cheese platter and selected wine then a variety of sweets and treats with another accompanying wine.

The service was professional yet friendly and informal. Kitchen staff participated in service by plating some dishes at the table, explaining the course construction/techniques and answering our questions - an innovation we enjoyed. We were celebrating a birthday and the young lady who served our table (Kelly) participated in and contributed much to our fun.

At the completion of the meal we were escortde to the tasting rooms where we could have more to drink or use the discount vouchers that were presented to us with personalised copies of the days menu. This was a touch that really made an impact on all of us.

We travelled from interstate and will definitely be returning to this restaurant on our next trip and would have no reservation in recommending it to those who enjoy food and wine presented in innovative ways.

“beautiful food, beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We went to a friends 60th there last weekend. The food was wonderful as were the wine selections with each course. One of the best restaurant experiences we've had. The head chef introduced each dish and presentation was first class.
A great night!
