Very difficult to pick the finger food up with our fingers, very hot and some fell apart while eating or you had to put the whole piece in your mouth. No paper plates, nothing to eat the food. Even little paper plates, and toothpicks, would have gone long way. The Card machine was not working. The barman could not keep... More

Staff that deliver platters to patrons always carry serviettes so that you can place a piece of food on that while you enjoy a drink and allow it to cool if necessary. Traditionally cocktail Functions do not have plates, at the request of the Host. We apologise if you do not think that this is acceptable. In reference to your... More

We dined at the Bartons Restaurant as I had won a gift voucher and in looking at the set up beforehand we agreed we probably wouldn't be going if I didn't have the voucher. Basically you select entree size meals which are pretty over priced- the portions are tiny, even for entree size. I don't know what they are hoping... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Bartons Restaurant and congratulations on wining the $50.00 voucher we donated so that you could dine in our venue. We have checked your account for the evening and found that it totalled $45 per person for a pate starter plus 3 courses (which included beef fillet) we are disappointed that you think... More

In Barton's restaurant you can be as hungry as you like because the menu has changed since last time we visited. Now it has what I would call all entre meals. For those of you that want to try various meals this is the place to go. All the meals are entre sized and priced as entres as well and... More

Cold night, warm pub, good food with no meal prep or dish washing to be done.This was a spontaneous choice with no prior experience but a good choice. Service was good with out being effusive and the portion sizes smaller which enabled us to have another course. Sweet potato and pumpkin soup was a winner followed by the smaller size... More

Okay, this place may be a little more classier than what I like, but I still think it is a pretty cool pub, even if only to come for a couple of beers, The restaurant (which I have been to, though it was quite a while ago) has a pretty nice view of the parklands, and it also doubles as... More

I recently went to the Caledonian Hotel with a group of about 10 friends; with us eating the food from the restaurant menu (there is also a cafe menu). There was a note on the menu recommending to order 2 main courses. Each course, while beautiful tasting and beautifully presented (no problems there), was very small and pricey. If you... More

Very special. The 300 gram rump steak was cooked with a sous vide method for 24 hours then finished on the grill. The flavours were really significantly enhanced by this method as was the texture - very tender, brilliant flavours beyond what the humble rump would normally produce. And all of this was available in the Cafe section, off the... More

Order two courses and get the third for free! An absolute no-brainer expect illy if there's quality food to choose from. Long menu list was a delight, well presented and accompanied by a great wine from Pikes.

Bartons Restaurant is a glassed-off room at the Caledonian Hotel. They serve smaller plates of food so you can order 2 or 3 items and share, if you like. The room is carpeted and quiet, the staff were lovely and friendly. My wife and I chose 3 plates between us, which was a little light on. If we had added... More
