Well what a wonderful surprise . My wife and I popped in for desert and a wine and it was superb. We had the mixed desert between us and everything on the plate made our tastebuds dance. Combined with a nice glass is botrytis we couldn't have had a better end to the evening. Staff were great and didn't rush... More

After staying overnight at the Hotel, I headed downstairs for breakfast. After ordering a good Vittoria coffee, I settled on the full hot breakfast as my meal. Very tasty pork sausages, potato rosti (with a hint of rosemary) , hand cut bacon, heirloom tomatoes, and mushrooms along with toast. All for $24, which is very reasonable. The place has a... More

It was a decent restaurant, but now it's just a place for gamblers to eat. Probably always was. The food was OK, but service patchy. It seems where staff all have name badges you will get a Sizzler or IHOP experience. Avoid. The highlight was the sweet potato fries. The duck was cold and the water glasses tasted like they...

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.
