Top end restaurant with good food. Need to add sides if you want to enjoy anything. It was a lovely atmosphere with lots of room and romantic setting. Highly recommend the wines - excellent list. A nice special night out feed.

I have a excellent memory for places that serve flat champagne and this happened to me at the Treasury Hotel, albeit many years ago. However, since we were staying at the hotel and my spouse was attending a conference dinner at the Customs House, I begrudgingly decided to have one course and a glass of wine at The Lab. In...

Our first visit after hearing such good reports. Small servings of very tasty and wonderful dishes. Expensive for the meal sizes. We left and found a little takeaway pizza place to fulfil our part filled stomachs. Service was good, atmosphere was good.

We were a party of 5. we ordered coffees when we were seated and had to wait 35 minutes for it to arrive. One of my guests was challenged by the waiter when ordering a hotcake... More

The service was up to scratch, the food was excellent, especially the prawn and scollop I had, and the price was not as expensive as I had thought it would be. However,lighting was so dim that we had to use a bulb candle to read the menu and not much in the way of atmosphere as there were very few... More

The Lab Bar is much more special than the name implies. Situated in the historic Treasury building the restaurant exudes an old world grace and charm. On our visit we were fortunate to be seated beside one of the enormous beautiful arched windows overlooking George st. Attention to detail is evidenced by the huge vases of fresh flowers, candles and... More
