The service was impeccable with the gracious and knowledgeable waiter and owner. The Spring menu has something for everyone with a classic feel about it. The sauces were subtle and sophisticated. The wine list was extensive and affordable. We were unable to fit in any dessert and it looked amazing.

The remoteness from the city hub makes this restaurant an ideal venue for a calming and enjoyable meeting for a couple or group. The food is delightful and diverse to suit most tastes. The orange duck was very special. An excellent wine and beverage list to chose from. Ed was very attentive and made the evening most memorable for me... More

Twice ate at this restaurant and enjoyed it. The service was okay and the food was very good. It is very family friendly and in a quite place, highly recommended for family outings.

We ordered the trio dips to share between three people. The bread was very filling and two of the dips were very tasty, one was okay. The waiter didn't let us know the dip flavours and we ended up forgetting to ask. Apparently they change the flavours regularly. For the main I had their special which was the Beef Wellington...OMG!!... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely evening at Linga Longa. The menu is varied, and the food delicious. The portions are qite large, and we could certainly have enjoyed 2 courses, but the dessert menu was not to be missed, so 2 became 3, with the addition of the Russian honey cake. The staff are very helpful. We have... More

Our recent visit to this restaurant was so disappointing we wont be going back anytime soon. In the past we have enjoyed good but not great food and exceptional service in a quiet friendly dining room. Something has changed. Our waiter was efficient enough but dismissive and arrogant. We ordered flame grilled calamari for an entree which came out tough... More

Second visit to this restaurant and once again did not disappoint! If you enjoy traditional dining in a quiet, unhurried atmosphere then this is the restaurant for you. Food is exceptional, service discreet and attentive, and the wine list matches the dishes perfectly.

Had a steak sandwich and the steak was melting in the mouth. They used sourdough for the bread which was to hard to chew through however this my only fault of the whole meal. Everything was delicious! I then had a creme brûlée for dessert. This was one of the best creme brûlée I have ever eaten. So very creamy... More

We went to the special mothers day lunch with a set menu. Great value for money - all plates were immaculately presented and the flavours were unique and well thought out. We all had a wonderful lunch.
