This place is amazing! Staff were very knowledgeable about the menu. We had the Rib Eye on the bone and it was hands down the best steak we have ever eaten. Side of Macaroni Cheese was just perfection and the cabbage parmesan slaw was fantastic. We rounded off the meal with the Lemon Meringue Souffle and Raspberry Sorbet which was... More

I only have good things to say about The Grill. The wagyu eye fillet I got was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious! The rest of the food was just as good. We got such amazing service that we left a tip too. The only downside was how far away the toilets were. But I would definitely be back!

Simply an outstanding evening. The staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. My husband had the prawns and eye fillet steak. I had the suckling pig fritter and the chicken saltimbocca. We had the cabbage slaw and duck fat chips as our sides. Everything was delicious. My husband savoured every mouthful and really couldn't talk! Thank you for a fantastic evening... More

This is about my 6th visit to The Grill. I keep going back because it simply ticks all the boxes. Not cheap but not over the top, it has a nice variety , with a few interesting menu choices. Essential to book as its reputation has spread. Get eye fillet with my own addition of fresh bluff oysters..... mmmmm
