We went as a family group on a Saturday night - ages ten to ninety - fairly early in the evening. The venue looks really good, with parking in its driveway, overflowing onto surrounding streets. The restaurant looks like it's recently been renovated, with a fresh interior, and a view out onto a formal courtyard. Tables are well laid out,... More

All our food was good and people with 'gluten free' requirements are well catered for and welcomed. Three course lunch special for $29 is good value. We did not have the lunch special as we explored the menu for a special occasion. Our enjoyable meal of 'begin, entree, main with a side dish and dessert' for two people was $154.00.... More

The four of us had excellent meals, all beautifully prepared and served. Steak, duck, salmon and lamb shanks all just right. The desserts were a great hit Pricey but well worth a visit to such a special building

If you are planning on dinner here, ensure you insist on avoiding the service pantry and passage way at rear of restaurant. We had booked table and arrived early at 6:30pm to celebrate a business milestone. Table location was very noisy and distracting with the clatter of plates and cutlery for a romantic dinner and conversation for couples. On reporting... More

We had the chicken and the beef with winter vegetables. The vegetables we the best part - so flavoursome, you just don't get that very often, even in expensive establishments. We almost went a second night! The apple crumble desert, a modern take on it, was a 10. The best desert we had in Canberra.

I had dinner here with my mother who was visiting from Sydney. We loved the atmosphere and we're looking forward to a delicious dinner. It took a while for anyone to notice us, and when they did they couldn't find my booking. Fortunately it wasn't a busy night so we got a table. Both our entrees were very ordinary -... More

Decided to have lunch with my wife, we were going to have three courses but stopped after two. Garlic and herb bread arrived still frozen. Staff apologetic. Took further 15 for this to be replaced. Steaks arrived and were less than warm and wife's had wrong sauce on it. There was also no seasonable vegetables as advertised. Vegetables came very... More
