Loved our lunch at Orana - taken out by my husband who had heard about it from a friend. The food is bush did done in creative ways. We went on a Friday and paid $80 pp for a 7 course lunch. You do have a choice of wine pairing but we drove in and decided against the wine pairing.... More

On arrival at The restaurant we were told that we had no booking. When the email confirmation was shown to them they said that... More

Went with a small group of mates who meet a couple of times a year for lunch. The service was impeccable. It was a set fee for food with drinks extra. There were no choices and no menu. The chef was to surprise us apparently. The food presentation was innovative and world class. Several of the courses though were just... More

What a delight to enter and be transported Jock Zonfrillos's food heaven that is Orana. The ambience of the room is pleasant and the staff welcoming and in no way obsequious. The food throughout the evening is a journey of discovery using indigenous Australian ingredients full of flavour and surprise. Jock's respect for Australia's first people is obvious, welcome and...

It's a lovely little resturant serving beautiful cooked Aussie ingredients incorporating native produce to make tasty degustation dishes. The service was excellent, food was very interesting and tasty. I say interesting in a good way as I do not want to give too much away and spoil the surprise element to the meal. Overall wonderful experience!

We had eaten at Blackwood, Orana's downstairs more casual option and not been stunned, however we were full of anticipation for this meal. The dining room is quiet but not glamorous or exciting. However, the food is both of those and much more. Ticks every culinary box. Wine flight was interesting and enjoyable, service was friendly and knowledgeable.

The food at Orana is fine dining, bush tucker, French influenced and all of the above. It is an eclectic fusion of Australian fresh produce. The wine list is exceptional and well priced. I had a Rousseau Clos De Beze (2005, I think). It was exceptional and the food was comparable. That's how good the food is. The service was... More

Three things to note: 1. Friendly and mindful service by all staff 2. Unique food - either via combination of ingredients, food presentation, or taste 3. Interesting location It seems the attentive staff knew their offerings and the restaurant well. They either confidently answered my queries re: the food, or they humbly referred my question to the kitchen staff to... More
