This is my favourite restaurant for absolutely special occasions and it holds its own even compared to Michelin starred restaurants I've been to abroad. Hands down the best steak in the region. The seafood is always perfectly done and the desserts are delightful. The staff is friendly and the wine selection is very good. I've been going to this restaurant... More

Is out of this world. A must have. Enjoyed the filet. Was cooked just right. Medium rare and crunchy on the outside. Yum yum. It was a nice setting inside and the staff was not the friendliest, at least I didn't think so and not quite so helpful. Since my husband is a steak kind of guy, we went, but... More

Took my bf here for his b'day and we had a wonderful time. The setting was quite romantic with the dim lighting. Our server was very attentive and was always there when we needed something. The food was delicious and the portions were huge. The truffle macaroni and cheese is a must have. The cocktails were also nice mixed. Overall... More

Amazing food, great service. Within expectation of fine dining. Steak was amazing - had the 16oz NY Strip which was tender and flavourful. Rack of lamb was also great. My only gripe was that the servers mixed up the order- kinda disappointing considering there were only 4 people in the entire restaurant. Asked for the steak to be medium and... More

The staff is very courteous and helpful and the food tastes great but be forewarned that the prices are a bit steep.

Atmosphere was wonderful, service was great, the food was prepared to perfection. I highly recommend the herb crusted lamb rack that just melted in your mouth. Best experience in a long time!

Prime restaurant is located in the BHP Billiton building adjacent to the MovieTowne complex. It is a modern, well-appointed restaurant with adjacent car parking in a safe location. The food is excellent.

My husband and I went on an unplanned date to the Prime Restaurant last Saturday evening. The experience was as wonderful as the twenty times we had been there before. We normally go to Prime every year to celebrate our Anniversary and we get the same warm reception, great food and excellent service every time we go. The appetizer was... More

Prime is what it is. Its an amazing fine dining experience but it comes at a high cost. If you are willing to spend money for fine dining and appreciate the best of wines and amazing food, this is the place! Service was phenomenal as well!

It's a fine dining restaurant and if you need a quiet evening out this is the place to go. The service is great and the food is delicious and there is a good variety to choose from for both local and international cuisine.
