The service was very good, the waitresses were attentive, well informed about the menu and helpful. The meal was nicely... read more

This place is pretty good in comparison to other places in Braddon. You can get an entree a mains and a desert with a beer and a soft drink and for a 100$ for two people. The staff is polite, attentive and professional and reservation are not necessary which is a big plus. Food is tasty, with generous portions and... More

We travelled to Canberra and ate at The Haig, I was slightly disappointed with the food and decor. The food were smaller portions then most other restaurants and the quality was not really up to standard, which was unfortunate given the wraps that I had heard about the place. The staff were excellent, very friendly and were great with talking... More

Terrible - booked 2 months in advance and arrived at 6:30 for a great New Years eve with our Moët and Chardonnay - of approx 25 tables 1 had occupants - the waitress went to seat us at an obviously makeshift table within 6 inches of the front door - we asked politely if we could have a different table...

It's not often that we have such a disappointing experience that we give a review as low as a 2/5. But, sadly we have to for this one. The only thing going for it was the friendly staff. Apart from that it was very overpriced, lack-luster menu selections and lousy food quality. Should have gone to McDonalds! Can not put... More

We had our Christmas party here, with 70 people. Booked out the venue, about the perfect size for that size. We had then Angus beef and salmon as alternates and the comments were all really positive. Much thanks to Lesley and the staff, could not have been more helpful. Corkage of $5.50 was very reasonable. Booking again for next year!
