Have had quite a few dinners in this lovely hotel. Great customer service. Love the stone grill. I would say from my experience it would be the best stone grill i have had. Quality meats and good selection of wines.

We attended for a birthday dinner, just the two of us, and it was all we could have wanted. A great table and view (with apologies for the inflatable kangaroo on a bicycle outside one of the windows - in honour of the Tour Down Under!), amazing food and wine, and the usual excellent service. Oh and it is quite... More

Didn't know what to expect especially with a rowdy crowd @ The Strathmore Bar. But was pleasantly surprised with the welcoming staff who were quite courteous and on-to-it with regards the menu choices. The portions were pretty generous and the quality of meats were really fresh. Overall--8/10

23 of us attended our work Christmas Function at The Balcony and the service was exceptional, always had drinks on the table and the food was of excellent quality and size. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Renowned for stone-grill cooking but all dishes bought positive comments

Very friendly, great atmosphere in the courtyard, which was sunney and but had shady areas as well. Large screen Tv's all over to watch the races or sports. Lazy way to kill a couple of hours with friends. in a great spot opposite Casino, and the ERxhibition Centre.

We visited here for dinner on 21st October and were a little unsure of what to expect due to the stone grill nature of the menu, however we were pleasantly surprised! The Balcony Restaurant is lovely inside, please don't be put off by the downstairs generic Aussie pub style of the Strathmore as it is no reflection of the fine... More

We had some meat which was excellent. Service is faultless and friendly. I can only recommend . Price is average for Australia, not cheap for European standard but ok for down under.

At how many restaurants can you grill meats to your liking right at your table? The Balcony offers the "Stonegrill" in which the meats of your choice are brought to the table accompanied by a very hot stone on which you cook. Tonight my wife and I shared the "Aussie Fare" that included beef, lamb, kangaroo, and prawns. Everything was... More

Visited the Balcony Restaurant on Saturday expecting some really good food. Sadly this was not delivered. We ordered the vegetable spring rolls wrapped in rice paper with peanuts/soy dressing, The only vegetable was a few strands of carrot nothing else. They came deep fried in filo pastry!! Nasty. The other started was the pear/pork dumplings with a cider sticky dressing.... More
