The food was lovely buy the service was terrible. Too few staff who were not properly trained. Seriously, 20 minutes for a drink and then we had to ask again. Disappointing

The chap sitting next to me had two main courses that's how good this place is. I had the eye fillet on the bone and the pear and mixed salad. Book early and ask for a table on the verandah.

Ate dinner during our stay at Hotel Kurrajong. Nice to have bonus wine with the NRMA membership. The food portions were very generous and steaks were done perfectly.

We booked this restaurant as we were staying at the Hotel Kurrajong, and we were very disappointed, not with the food, which was good, but with the service. It is a Grill Room & our steaks were done exactly as we wanted. However, the wine came after our meal had arrived, our salad had to be asked for more than... More

As overnight guesta at the Kurrajong Hotel, we enjoyed dinner and returned for breakfast in the in-house Chifleys Bar & Grill. The food was excellent and much enjoyed. The only flaw was the non-arrival of the ordered wine, necessitating our intervention. It was also served in a tumbler, euphemistically claimed to be a stemless wine glass. Sorry, don't buy this...

Stayed for the weekend at the hotel so thought we would eat in the first night, a Friday. The restaurant was busy, so book if it is a weekend, either 6pm of 8pm sittings. We were placed on a table for two at the back, very close to tables either side of us. Could not have a private conversation, although... More

Confit duck was one of the best I've ever had. Steak was fine, but would have liked some quality vegetables on the plate.

Our main meals arrived while we were only half way through entree, and then reappeared very quickly after we had entree cleared. Whilst reasonably tasty they were lukewarm by the time we finished them. Need to sharpen up Service / Kitchen communication and don't call next course until the last one is done, chef was probably keen to get home... More

We decided to stay at the hotel and eat in the restaurant mainly because it was Saturday night and we had not booked anywhere. They have two sittings, One from 6pm and another from 8pm. We chose the latter but luckily booked it at the desk. Advisable. The food was excellent while I had two entree's and my hubby had... More

Service was great and food lovely but a bit overpriced for the portion. I really do object to having to pay extra for sides of vegetables.
