The Service was great and ambience was also good. The food was good but the chateaubriand was not as good as previous owner had provided. The meat should have been a little more tender and the bernaise sauce was a little bland. Otherwise very good

Visited with 8 adults and 2 babies. Staff could not have been more accommodating on a very busy Saturday afternoon. We chose to go with the 'chefs choice'. Best food we had on our visit to South Australia. The golf was an added extra
