We dined as a party of six and had a lovely time. Scallops, kangaroo, lamb, beef tournedoes, garlic prawns, sage and onion bread, and the desserts were cooked beautifully. Our waitress was extremely attentive and was at hand at any time. The owner was very...More

My partner and I dined at the Hermitage last night and had a fantastic meal. The steak was cooked to absolute melt-in-your-mouth perfection. The wine recommended to match our meals was spot on. They even let us know when our show was about to start...More

My lunch 'special' at Hermitage - wow - I've never been less inclined to eat anything in my life. The barramundi was slimy and overcooked. The beurre au blanc sauce had soaked the chips into soggy oblivion (chips - really - straight out of a...More

My fiance splurged on lunch for our 4yr anniversary recently, we got a garlic bread entree and then both ordered the 'hermitage special' at $42 each... The bread was the best part of our meal. The hermitage special came with a half lobster, fillet steak...More

We went for a relaxed dinner. We were rushed out of there by 8:30 (arrived at 7:00). It would have been 8 but we made them slow down. It seemed as if we were keeping them up yet when we booked I had made it...More
